REDRUTH WEST END SW 64 SE (south side) 11/320 Nos. 9 and 10 (Formerly listed as: 12.9.89 REDRUTH WEST END (South Side) Nos.9.and 11)

GV II

Pair of houses, now office and flats. Early C19. Granite ashlar, roof concealed but probably slate. Irregular plan on triangular plot, but presenting a square facade. Classical style. Three-and-a-half storeys and 4 bays over a full service basement; the symmetrical facade imitates some features of Palladian design, with giant pilasters to the 2 upper floors rising from a string course, (but there are only 3 of them, one at each end and one in the centre), a plan frieze, moulded cornice, and panelled parapet interrupted by 4 short balustrades. The basement, expressed as a plinth, has one 12-pane sashed window to each part; the raised ground floor has a doorway at each end, with recessed door and panelled reveal, each approached by parallel steps protected by wrought-iron ramped railings in which alternate bars are waved and decorated with scrolls (matching railings protect the basement area), and 2 large tripartite sashed windows with glazing bars; the upper floors have 12-pane sashes and square 6- pane sashes; and all these openings have splayed voussoirs and keystones. Interior:the principal rooms at ground floor have moulded plaster cornices (but are now partitioned), and there are various C19 decorated cast-iron fireplaces, and a Cornish range and washing boiler in the basement.
