TQ3104SW NEW ROAD 577-1/40/568 (West side) 13/10/52 No.23 and attached railings


Terraced house. c1815. Probably designed by Amon Wilds. Brick in Flemish bond, mathematical tile and stucco on bay spandrels; stucco scored to imitate ashlaring on the return.

2-span roof of slate. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and dormer. One-window range. Flat-arched entrance up flight of steps on the return; there is a shallow porch above supported by a pair of brackets and flanked by Tuscan pilasters. The ground floor of main elevation is taken up by a shop front of C20; above a full-height segmental bay with tripartite, flat-arched windows. Sashes of original design to first-floor windows, 6/9 to centre and 4/6 to sides.

Spandrils of mathematical tile; second-floor window spandrels faced in stucco. Roof parapet, behind which one flat-arched dormer. Verandah to first floor is nearly full width; rectangular in plan bowing out slightly in front of the bay; metal concave roof; wooden railings in lattice pattern; stanchions treated as open-fretted Ionic pilasters supporting an openwork entablature. Brick stack to end wall. The placement of the bay just slightly left off the central axis suggests that there may have been an early C19 entrance on the right party wall. INTERIOR: not inspected.
