ST5872NE KING STREET, Centre 901-1/16/607 (North side) 08/01/59 No.33


Attached house, now restaurant. c1665, with mid C18 fenestration. Rendered timber box-frame with brick lateral stack and a pantile roof. Central lateral stair separating front and rear rooms. 3 storeys, attic and basement; 3-window range. A gabled front has jetties to each floor with a small pent above the second floor, and boxed eaves. Right-hand doorway has a moulded C17 frame with moulded stops and framed scratch-moulded 9-panel door and 2 brackets to the jetty above, with three C20 twelve-pane ground-floor windows. C18 first-floor canted oriel has pilaster jambs and a dentil cornice, to 10/10-pane and flanking 6/6-pane sashes, paired second-floor 6/6-pane sashes, and a horned attic 6/6-pane sash, in flush frames. INTERIOR: central open dogleg stair with uncut string, early C18 column-on-vase balusters, column newels and a moulded rail; a good first floor has pegged door frames, moulded beams, one to rear room with chamfer stops with shallow relief tulips. The front first-floor room has good plaster decoration in 2 sections separated by a chamfered beam, with pointed central quatrefoils and pomegranites, winged cherubs and corner decoration, and a frieze of adorsal hounds and fruit. Part of the medieval City wall is incorporated into the structure of the back. Connected at ground and first floors with No.35 (qv). Plasterwork closely similar to that in the Llandoger Trow (qv). Although conservative in design, No.33 prefigures C18 urban plan forms with the lateral stair, an arrangement repeated at Nos 7 & 8, 16 and 18-20.
