SO8932 HIGH STREET 859-1/6/264 (East side) 04/03/52 Nos.138 AND 139


Pair of houses in row, one with shop under. Early C18. Flemish bond brickwork with painted stone dressings, tile roof, brick stacks. 3 storeys, attic and basement, 2+2-windowed. One early C18 gabled 2-light dormer to 138, then all 12-pane sashes in moulded face boxes, under brick voussoirs with plain keystones (unusual in Tewkesbury) on stone cills. 138 has a large 4-pane sash to the right, above a cellar grille, then to the left a 6-pane flush door under a margin-bar transom-light, in fluted pilasters, and, far left, in fluted incised pilasters, a glazed door under an elliptical fanlight with radial bars; all this beneath a moulded cornice. 139 has a late C20 shop front. At each end and in the centre are channelled pilasters through first and second floors, with a plain band above the ground floor cornice and above the first floor windows. The moulded stone eaves carries concealed guttering. Central ridge stack. At the back of 138 is a C20 dormer above two 12-pane and a large 16-pane sash; there is also a very large stack. 139 has a C19 brick wing in 3 storeys, with 2-light casements at second floor and 16-pane sashes to V-joint lintels at first floor, above a flat-roofed addition. INTERIOR not inspected. This is a very handsome pair of houses, little changed externally, except for the unfortunate shop front insertion to No.139, and a relatively rare example in Tewkesbury of complete rebuilding rather than a fashionable refacing to older fabric.
