House, now the front building of a car firm. Late C18. Rendered walls, solid at least in ground storey. Roof-covering not visible from street. Chimney at left end of ridge; another on right side-wall. Double-depth plan, with centre doorway leading to stair at rear; left ground-storey room reduced in width to allow for a carriage-entrance to left. 2-parallel ranges of workshops to rear, set at right-angles. 3 storeys; 3-window range, the outer 2 taking the form of full-height canted bays, except that the left-hand bay occupies only the second and third storeys. Centre double-doors, each of 6 ovolo-moulded panels, the outer panels narrower than those in the centre; flanking panelled pilasters, triangular pediment on carved consoles. Carriage-way has C20 iron gates; stretch of early C19 moulded cornice inside. Windows all have 6-paned sashes in moulded frames, except for the left-hand ground-storey window, which has 8-paned sashes in a concealed frame. Prominent boxed eaves-cornice. Left rear range altered in ground storey, but upper storey retains C19 workshop windows. INTERIOR: access refused, but photographs in Bideford Community Archive show cornice with ceiling-band in entrance-passage; boxed-in stair, possibly C18.
