However, continued use of Barracks in area until c1870 resulted in Pelham Crescent becoming a cul-de-sac. Original house now converted into flats. Two storeys plus attic and basement. Red brick facades with blue brick ornamentation and stone dressings. Slate, gabled roof. Originally, single storey rear extension with hipped slate roof plus separate outbuildings adjacent to Pelham Crescent. Outbuildings now replaced with 20c garages.
