GV II

Pair of terraces houses and shops combined into one. Now occupies and island site bounded by Buttgarden Street on the east and Honestone Street on the south; the remainder of this side of Market Place has been demolished. Early or mid C19. Solid rendered walls. Hipped slate roof. 3 storeys with basement and garret. Fronts of 2-window range to No 1 and 1 window at No 2. No 1 has shop front (probably late C19 with C20 alterations) containing 2 display windows; between them and at left-hand end a panelled pilaster supporting an entablature. No 2 has a single display window of similar type. There may be an entablature, concealed by a late C20 fascia; console survives at right-hand end. Upper-storey windows have moulded architraves. Those in second storey of No 1 are French windows with glazing-bars and margin-panes; No 2 has 6-paned sashes in this position. All third-storey windows have 2-paned sashes. Openings in rear wall (fronting Honestone Street) have plain raised surrounds, all but a round-arched stair window at No 1 having slightly pointed-headed lintels which project at either end; stair window is tall with glazing-bars: 39 oblong panes with radial bars at the top; beneath it a doorway with panelled reveals, the left side with later boarding at the bottom. 2 windows in second storey have 6-paned sashes; 1 in ground storey probably has the same, although lower sash boarded over. Openings in left side-wall match those at the rear. Pilaster-strip at right-hand end. No openings in right side-wall. INTERIOR not inspected, but No 1 appears to retain the original staircase with thin square balusters and continuous handrail.
