15 Cavendish Crescent North

Semi-detached house, in single household use, forming part of a matching pair, built c1885, with the front access to the house from Cavendish Crescent North and rear garden access from Clumber Crescent North. The original building envelope remains predominantly intact and in good condition with natural slate roof, plain clay ridge and hip tiles and lead valleys. The original brick corbelled chimney sidewall stacks with crown chimney pots have been taken down and replaced with types that are inappropriate in style and scale. New rooflights have recently been added. The red brick walls are relatively plain with moulded brick or decorative terracotta string courses at eaves and storey height levels with stone door and window lintels, surrounds and sills which have been left unpainted. Two window bays facing the garden, two storey canted bay with a shallow pitched roof plus three storey rectangular bay forming a gable at roof level. Eaves and gable verges are corbelled brickwork. Original cast iron gutters and downpipes have been replaced with a black plastic type. The majority of original windows, which are predominantly vertical sliding sashes, remain and there are a small number of more recent replacement windows. The original glazed front passage route from Cavendish Crescent North remains with the partially rebuilt brick and moulded stone entrance doorway at the edge of the footpath. Externally, the property has not changed significantly since the house was built apart from the replacement of the original chimney stacks and the front and rear boundary walls. A garage and a small ‘garden’ building have been added in the front yard area. The original brick and stone garden wall between No.15 and No.11 remains and a recent fence encloses the boundary with No.17.
