CAMELFORD VICTORIA ROAD, No. 2 Victoria Road and railings to front and No. 2 and No. 4 College Road

(Formerly listed as No. 2 (The Peacock's Tail Restaurant) and railings to front and No. 2 and No. 4 College Road)


GV II Former restaurant and tearooms, probably originally a private house and railings and gate to front, house adjoining on left, and house adjoining to rear right.

No 2 Victoria Road. Circa mid C17 remodelling in late C18. Rendered and stuccoed stone rubble, with third floor of rendered and stuccoed softwood timber frame. Bitumen coated rag slate roof with gable ends. Rendered brick stacks on gable ends. Shallower range to rear comprising 2-storey outshot with slate roof with gable ends. Plan: The original plan of the house is uncertain although it appears that the house was of only 2-storeys, probably comprising a 2 or 3 room plan, the entrance to left of centre and the right and left rooms heated by end stacks. In circa late C18 the house was remodelled; a 2-storey service outshot was added across the rear forming a double depth plan with a stair in a shallow projection near the centre. The rear slope of the earlier roof remained unaltered whilst the ridge and eaves of the front slope were raised to accomodate a third storey. Part of the rear outshot has been incorporated into No. 4 College Road and a C20 extension has been added on the right hand gable end. 3 storeys. Regular 4-window front with rusticated quoins, exposed sash boxes and with larger windows towards the right hand side of the front elevation. Ground floor has entrance to left of centre with part glazed C19 6-panel door and door frame with segmental arched hood on moulded consol brackets. Three 4 over 8 pane sashes with wider window to right. First and second floors have three 3 over 6 pane sashes with a 4 over 8 pane sash to right. Interior : Remodelled in C20 with internal partitions removed on the ground floor. The left hand fireplace has an unmoulded granite lintel, the fireplace partly blocked. Circa late C18 stair to rear has stick balusters, turned newels and a curved rail. Earlier roof trusses to rear slope of earlier range originally lapped and pegged at apices, the collars partly halved, lapped and pegged onto the face of the principals and the purlins originally trenched. C19 cast iron railings to front with C19 iron gates. No. 2 College Road. Circa mid C19. Stone rubble with rag slate roof with hipped ends. 2 room plan added originally as a separate cottage on the left hand gable end of No 2 Victoria Road and now in the same ownership as No 2 Victoria Road. 2 storeys. Regular 3 window front with gabled half dormers. No. 4 College Road. House. Circa C18 remodelled in early C19. Slate stone rubble walls up to first floor on all 4 sides. Rendered stuccoed timber frame to first floor, part rebuilt with stone rubble on rear right. Steeply pitched slate roof with gable ends and deep overhanging eaves. Brick shaft to rear lateral stack. Original plan uncertain as the house may originally have been an outbuilding. The building is of rectangular 2-room plan with entrance in partly blocked wider opening to left of centre and the fireplace to the rear lateral stack is almost opposite the entrance with a blocked door visible on the exterior below the shaft. There is a straight joint to the right of centre, possibly indicating that the house has been extended to the right. The house has also incorporated part of the rear circa late C18 outshot of the adjoining No 2 Victoria Road. 2 storeys. Regular 3 window front with window frames largely replaced in late C20. 4 pane sash and part glazed C20 door in wider blocked opening on left, and 2 C20 2- light casements to right. First floor has three 9-pane windows in the earlier C19 window frames. Rear elevation forms third side of court to rear of No 2 Victoria Road and No. 2 College Road. Interior not accessible.
