KIRKHAM PRESTON STREET SD 43 SW 9/31 No.48 Hillside and attached wings (Formerly listed as No 48 12.6.50 (Hillside)

- II

House with attached stable wings, now restaurant, early C19 with a few later alterations. Brick (in Flemish bond) on sandstone plinth with stone (or stucco) dressings, slate roof and gable stacks. 5 bays, 2 storeys with cellar and attic. The doorway is set within a semi-elliptical arch and has engaged Ionic columns carrying a simple cornice with a semi-elliptical fanlight over. Probably original door with.6 raised and fielded panels. All windows are sashed with 12 panes and have stone (or stucco) lintels and sills. Doorway is approached up a double flight of stairs with cast iron railings; these have stick balusters on the flights but a roundel in the centre of the top balustrade which supports a late-c19th lantern (also supported from the cornice of the doorway). To either side (but not symmetrically) are lower two-storey wings with stable or coach house doors below and a pair of lunette windows above. Interior: Most doorways have reeded jambs, but the detail generally appears to be towards mid C19. Staircase has open string (with brackets decorated with Vitruvian scrolls) stick balusters and a mahogany handrail. Landing window has margin-pane glazing, reeded jambs and a semi-circular head decorated with feathers set radially. History: House built by John Birley for his son Edward, who died in 1811 before it was completed. Edward Birley's tomb is in the churchyard of the Church of St. Michael (q.v. under Church Street).
