SD4761NW CASTLE HILL 1685-1/6/34 (East side) 18/02/70 No.7 (Formerly Listed as: CASTLE HILL (South East side) No.7 Castle Temperance Hotel)


House, now flats. Mid C18, altered C20. Coursed squared sandstone with ashlar ground floor and dressings, coursed rubble to rear. Stone slate roof and gable chimneys. Double-depth plan with, originally, a staircase projection at the rear. 3 storeys plus attic above a cellar, and 4 bays (though proportioned as for 5) with raised quoins to the right, a band above the ground-floor windows and another linking the lintels of the second-floor windows below an eaves cornice with a gutter carried on slender iron brackets. The return wall on the right has a window on each floor, that on the first floor being somewhat taller. All windows have raised plain surrounds and (except for those to right of door) 12-pane sashes. The attic is lit by a dormer with sloping roof. The central doorway has raised plain surround and 12-panelled door. The windows to right have, on all floors, tripartite stone surrounds, with 20-pane sashes and blocked sidelights. The rear shows signs of alteration at an early date, including vertical joints which suggest that the staircase, lit by a 2-stage window, was originally in a central projection. INTERIOR: full-height dogleg staircase with closed string, 2 turned balusters per tread, broad moulded and ramped handrail, fluted rectangular newels and a wreathed curtail at the foot. HISTORY: known as the Castle Temperance Hotel until 1950.
