SY6873 FORTUNESWELL, Fortuneswell 969-1/3/98 (West side) No.81


Office building in row, immediately adjoining Post Office (qv), and sharing some of its detail. Late C19. Red brick with stone dressings, slate roof. Three storeys, 2-windowed. Arched plain sashes to stone arch with key and dripstone at second floor and more boldly detailed at first floor. Central and end pilasters to simple caps, cill band at second floor. Ground floor has heavy 'Baroque' rusticated door surround to deep consoles and heavy keystones. Central pair of Roman Doric columns set back and framing large shop front above a modelled apron; heavy cornice and plain frieze. Terracotta decoration at eaves level continues from adjoining Post Office. Brick stack to right, plain return gable. A simplified version of the adjoining property, probably from the same designer's hand, and remaining unchanged externally, this demonstrates the commercial vigour of the area in the later part of the C19.
