25 and 27 East Street. House, now 2 shops. 18th century, refronted early 19th century. MATERIALS: pebbledash to the first-floor front, possibly over timber-framing, render to the rest, slate roof steeply-sloped to rear and swept forward to the front with a brick stack to right gable end. PLAN: double-depth with 2-storey rear wings. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys with attics; 3-window range. Two hipped-roofed dormers with slate cheeks and 19th century two-light, 3-pane casements with plate glass to right-hand leaf. 6/6-pane sash windows in forward frames and some crown glass to first floor, one above No.25 to left and two over No.27, though there appears to be a flying freehold as No.25 has 2 upper windows. Early 19th century shop front includes pilasters rising to continuous fascia and cornice spans the facade. To left 20th century plate-glass windows flank a half-glazed 19th century door with a 2-pane overlight; to the centre is a wide plank door with a similar overlight to passageway; to right of the passage is a similar door with delicate margin panes to the overlight, a 20th century plate-glass window to right and an early 19th century sash window with 6/6 panes to far right. INTERIOR: not inspected, but likely to retain earlier features especially in roof structure. Date listed: 22nd March 1983.
