Merchant's house, shop with house above. Medieval site. C17, with C19 and C20 modernisations. Mixed construction; stone rubble side walls with plastered timber-framed walls front and back; side wall stack with rendered chimneyshafts; slate roof. PLAN: End onto the street, probably 2 rooms deep. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys; one-window range. Plastered and all C20 features, but the jetties indicate the survival of original C17 timber-framing. C20 shop front to the ground floor with central doorway, and to right, a C20 panelled door to the house. C20 windows with glazing bars to the upper floors. Plain eaves to hipped front end of the roof. INTERIOR: Only the ground floor was available for survey. It has been cleared of all partitions and all carpentry is covered. There is, in the middle, a late C19 cast-iron column with Corinthian capital supporting the first-floor structure. Rest of interior said to have newel stair and likely to be of interest. HISTORY: The line of Lower Street was originally the waterfront. Land to the east was reclaimed in the late C16 and thereafter it became a main trading street connecting the old quay at Bayards Cove with the C17 New Quay around the present Boat Float.
