GV II

Pair of semi-detached houses. Probably c.1870; altered. Brown brick in header bond, with sandstone dressings and some applied black-and-white "half timbering", slate roof. Square plan, each house single-fronted. North Germanic vernacular style. Two storeys, 2+2 windows (plus a blind window in the centre), with buttressed corners, ornamental geometrical half-timbering in the gable, and projecting verges with bargeboards and apex finial; doorways close to the outer corners, with panelled and glazed doors and rectangular stone lintels; 3-light windows at ground floor and 2-light windows at 1st floor, all with raised sills and rectangular stone lintels (continuous over the 3 centre windows at 1st floor but with relieving arches of red brick above the lintel), all (apparently) horizontal sliding sashes, with central horizontal glazing bars, and those above the doors with small stone balconies protected by cast-iron latticed railings. Rear and interior not inspected. Part of small but distinctive settlement, said to have been built for immigrant North German community. Rare example of domestic architecture reflecting cosmopolitan nature of C19 Manchester society. Forms group with other items in The Grove, including Nos 803-5 and No.807 Wilmslow Road (q.v.).
