TL8564NW NORTHGATE STREET 639-1/3/490 (West side) 12/03/96 Nos.25, 26 AND 27

A row of 3 houses. Early C19. Partly timber-framed; roughcast rendered fronts; No.25 has a red brick gable end and No.27 random flint with some reused stone blocks. Slate roof to No.25 and black glazed pantiles to Nos 26 and 27 with slates at eaves level. Nos 26 and 27 were built as a matching pair with 2 red brick gable-end chimney-stacks and one internal stack, all with plain shafts, slightly corbelled heads and chimney pots. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and cellars. Each house has 2 windows to each storey, all 12-pane sashes in flush cased frames. No.25 is a slightly later addition, with a lower shallower pitch to the roof, ornamental ridge-tiles and 2 gable end chimney-stacks; 2 sash windows with a single vertical glazing bar in shallow moulded reveals to each storey. When No.25 was added, all the facades were given the same treatment, with a raised stucco band between the storeys, mock rustication to the quoins and similar doorcases. The slightly recessed central doors, up steps, have surrounds with plain reveals and fascias and flat cornice hoods with console brackets. Above the doors of Nos 25 and 26 are raised ornamental plaster diamonds, but this and the mock quoins have disappeared from No.27. Lean-to extensions at the rear. INTERIOR: No.27 only inspected. Simple early C19 fittings: dado rail in entrance corridor; fireplace surrounds with quarter-round mouldings and roundels; stair with stick balusters and turned newels. No features indicate an earlier core. Part of significant group in Northgate Street and included for group value.
