GV II

Pair of town houses, No.40 now office (incorporated with No.41 to the right, q.v.). Probably 1822-25; altered. Red brick in Flemish bond, with sandstone dressings and slate roof. Double-depth plan, each house single-fronted and with a back extension. Two storeys over cellars, 2+2 bays, with plain frieze and moulded cornice. Each has the doorway to the left, up 3 and 4 steps respectively, but differing in detail: No.39 has a doorcase of engaged Tuscan columns with square abaci, plain frieze and prominent moulded cornice (slightly over-lapping No.38 to the left), plain jambs with imposts, and an elliptical fanlight (over a modern glazed door); the doorway to No.40 is round-headed and has an architrave with set-in Tuscan quarter-columns, a panelled door, a plain lintel and a semicircular fanlight; and a raised lobby doorway to the left (served by the same steps) with a moulded architrave. All the windows are unhorned sashes without glazing bars, and have raised sills and wedge lintels. To the left of No.40 is a lead downspout (bottom section replaced with iron). Each has 2 chimneys (one each side of the ridge). Rear and INTERIORS not inspected. No.39 was probably designed for owner-occupation and No.40 for tenancy. The items closely resemble Nos.37 and 38 to the left (q.v.).
