GV II*

Attached house, now offices. c1665, refronted c1720. Timber-framed, front of red brick with limestone dressings, and pantile double-pile roof, hipped to the front and gabled at the rear, and rear stair tower. Double-depth plan. Early Georgian style. 3 storeys, attic and basement; 6-window range. A regular front has rusticated pilaster strips, strings to each floor and moulded coping. The doorway to right of centre has a moulded frame, 4-pane overlight and 6-panel door, with a shell hood on carved acanthus brackets. Lintels have 5 incised voussoirs to 9/9-pane sashes in flush frames with thick bars, and 2 hipped dormers with 6/6-pane sashes. Steps down to left-hand basement doorway. The left return has varied fenestration with 2 doorways to the left. INTERIOR: good C18 ground-floor panelling, earlier to right-hand room with a continuous overmantel and fire surround, and flanking cupboards; raised panels and an early C18 safe in left-hand room with a mid C18 Adamesque fire surround; chamfered beams in central hall with bar stops; central rear open-well C17 stair in its own stair tower, with uncut string, turned balusters and square newels, rebuilt to upper floors, and panelled, ramped C18 wainscot; collar beam trusses in attic. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: attached basement area cast-iron railings, curved up to the doorway. The original gables, presumably like those on the neighbouring Nos 7 & 8 King Street (qv), were cut back to form hips when refronted. The C18 front has stylistic links with contemporary houses in Dowry Square. (Gomme A, Jenner M and Little B: Bristol, An Architectural History: Bristol: 1979-: 100).
