TL8564SW WHITING STREET 639-1/14/689 (East side) 07/08/52 Nos.4 AND 5


House, now shop and offices. C16. Timber-framed and rendered in panels with old roughcast. Tiled roof with modillion eaves cornice. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and attics; jettied along street frontage. 3 window range: 12-pane sashes in flush cased frames. On the ground storey, one low canted bay window on the right with glazing bars and one larger C20 bay in C18 style on the left. C20 shop door in a moulded architrave with rectangular glazing bars to the fanlight. 2 gabled dormers. The building overlaps with No.6 (qv) on the right with a 2nd entrance door, below an extension to the jetty, in a reeded and shouldered architrave; the upper storey forms part of No.6. INTERIOR: irregularly divided between Nos 4 and 5. The cellar to both is below No.4. Under the 2-bay front range it has been used in modern times as a room and has a fine moulded ceiling with heavy cross-beams and joists, all with a double ogee moulding, which seems certain to be an insertion. Below one rear wing another 2-bay section has a heavy plain ceiling with a large chamfered main beam and unchamfered joists. No.4, in addition to the cellar, occupies only part of the ground storey: the northern bay of the front range and a long rear wing. The front room is fully panelled with C18 panelling and a has a heavy moulded cornice and corner fireplace. In the rear wing are 2 further one-bay rooms, one with panelling similar to the front, the other with an exposed timber ceiling with chamfered main beam and plain joists. An internal stack links the front and rear, but is covered apart from a cast-iron bake-oven door. No.5 occupies the remainder of the building: half the front range, and the whole upper storey. The front room is a continuation of the adjoining room in No.4, and they must originally have been in one: boxed-on main beam and the remains of panelling. The back wall has been removed to give access to a single-storey rear wing, probably C19, but entirely modernised. The upper part of the 2-storey rear wing is divided into 2 rooms with most features covered. Part of the north wallplate is visible and a small section on the south with part of the rebate for a shutter, but the roof has been raised. The 2 upper rooms above the front range have been made into one:

both halves have boxed-in main beams and the remains of a moulded plaster cornice. A panelled dado in the north bay. The attic above is on 2 rooms: on the south with side purlins and a collar-purlin with the remains of bracing for a crown-post roof; on the north with side purlins only.
