- II

Town House, in considerable grounds; Middle C19. Rendered with stone dressings; hipped slate roof with wide soffite supported by pairs of wood corbel brackets at intervals; rendered brick chimney stacks. Two and a half storeys, the West entrance facade is of 3-bays, the centre bay projecting. Segmental sweep of 5 steps (with middle C20 wrought iron railings) leads to pair of doors with upper panels glazed, set in a deep hallow-chamfered semi-circular arched recess with arch and impost mouldings, there being a cast iron radial fanlight over the door: a blank arched recess to the left, to the right a single storey angled stone bay window with plain sashes: to the first floor three 9-pane sash windows, the centre being in an architrave. Parapet to centre projection, and above 2-timber dormer windows with slightly pitched roofs. The South garden elevation has 4-bays: the ground floor being obscured by a substantial stone colonnaded conservatory with flat roof, the openings have semi-circular headed arches and are part glazed: to the first floor 2-floor length semi-circular headed 12-pane margined sashes; (one blind) on either side two 9-pane sash windows with original sliding venetian shutters; off-centre dormer window with two small sash windows and segmental roof. The East side has a straightforward 5 bay facade, with basement window in addition. To the North side is a middle C20 extension of little interest. The interior not inspected. To the North East of the building a flight of stone steps with moulded stone balustrade, piers, and return wing wall to house, included for their interest. The house understood to have been built by Peter Daniell, a glove manufacturer and town developer.
