Full description

Department of National Heritage, 1994, Dartmouth, 46 (List of Blds of Arch or Historic Interest). SDV157498.

House, formerly a pair of small houses, circa 1830-40, altered when houses united in late 20th century. Plastered stone rubble; end stacks with plastered brick chimneyshaft and old pots; slate roof. Plan: Originally a mirror plan pair, each unit one room wide and 2 rooms deep. Exterior: 2 storeys; symmetrical 2-window front. Central paired doorways recessed in the same opening -the right one is now blocked and the left one now contains a 20th century top-glazed door. Windows all contain original unusual sash windows, 8 panes with margin glazing. Plain eaves to parallel roof. More original sashes to rear. Interior not inspected but likely to be of interest. The houses of Charles Street enclose the west side of the Market Square, and comprise a good group of artisan dwellings. The whole area was developed in the 1820s and 1830s on land reclaimed from the old tidal mill pool.
