II* GV

2. A C18 red brick house. 2 storeys and cellars. Originally it had 3 storeys but the upper storey has now been removed and the roof lowered. Before this was done the house was a particularly complete and interesting example of C18 work and was exactly copied from a design in Abraham Swan's "Designs in Architecture' 1757 (vol I plate 15). 5 window range, double-hung sashes with glazing bars (except ground storey windows lower sashes), in plain reveals, with flat rubbed brick arches. The central window rises above a balustraded panel and has a wood moulded and shouldered architrave with projecting keystones. The central doorway is approached by a flight of stone steps with one iron handrail remaining and has a wood doorcase and plain Ionic columns, frieze and a modillion pediment. The doorcase and window above form a fine central feature. The cellars have ornamental iron gratings. The rear facade has been built out on the ground storey in the C20. Roof tiled hipped.

High House forms a group with Nos 22 to 26 (even).
