Monuments in the N. part of Endless Street.
(459) Cottages, row of six, Nos. 21–31 Scot's Lane,
demolished c. 1960, were two-storeyed with attics and
had timber-framed walls and a tile-covered roof. They
were perhaps of 18th-century origin, but interior fittings
were of the 19th century and later.
(460) Houses, two adjoining, Nos. 43–5 Endless
Street, of three storeys with brick walls and tiled roofs,
were built early in the 19th century. They are now
(461) House, No. 47, of three storeys with rendered
brick walls and slate-covered roofs, was built c. 1830.
The plan is of class-U. The E. front is symmetrical and
of five bays; in the W. elevation the lower storey has two
very large windows with hung sashes, curved on plan.
Inside, the stone stairs have cast-iron balustrades and
(462) Bellevue House, of two and three storeys with
rendered walls and slate-covered roofs, was built during
the first quarter of the 19th century. The windows and
doorway in the plain four-bay S. front were formerly
sheltered by an iron veranda, but this has now gone. The
E. front has four pilasters with moulded capitals. Inside,
the oak stairs have plain balustrades and are lit by a
circular roof-light. Some rooms have cornices with
(463) House, No. 74, of two storeys with attics, with
rendered brick walls and tiled roofs, was built early in
the 18th century. The symmetrical three-bay W. front
has a first-floor plat-band and the remains of a moulded
eaves cornice. Inside, the close-string staircase has
(464) House, No. 72 of two storeys with brick walls
and a slate-covered roof, was built during the first half of
the 18th century, probably after No. 74 (463). The
windows in both storeys of the plain four-bay W. front
were remodelled in the 19th century, but the doorway
retains an original door-case with a window in the entablature. Inside, the principal rooms have simple 18th-century joinery.
(465) Coach-house and Cottages, range, now three
dwellings, Nos. 66–70, of two storeys with attics, with
brick walls and tiled roofs, were built towards the end
of the 18th century. The W. front is approximately
symmetrical and of five bays, the middle bay projecting
slightly, the lateral bays having plat-bands and dentil
cornices. The lower storey of the middle bay was originally a carriage through-way and the elliptical brick arch
is visible in the facade of No. 68.
(466) Houses, row of three, Nos. 60–4, of three
storeys with brick walls and tiled roofs, have in the E.
elevation a date-stone of 1835, presumably the date of
(467) House, No. 56, of three storeys with brick
walls and tiled roofs, was built about the middle of the
18th century. The two-bay W. front has an ashlar plinth,
moulded brick plat-bands and a wooden cornice with
modillions. The round-headed doorway has a panelled
door-case, a fanlight and an open pediment on scrolled
brackets. A Palladian window with a gauged brick arch
and a keystone occurs in each of the lower storeys; the
top storey has square-headed windows. Inside, the W.
ground-floor room has round-headed niches flanking the
fireplace. The stairs have plain balustrades. The rooms in
the upper storeys have panelled dados and moulded and
enriched chimneypieces. The W. first-floor room has an
(468) House, No. 54, of three storeys and attics,
with brick walls and a tiled roof, was built towards the
end of the 18th century and evidently was originally an
opulent town-house, but is now used as a warehouse.
(468) No. 54 Endless Street
The five-bay W. front, with plain sashed windows in
each storey (Plate 77), has an ashlar plinth and a wooden
cornice. The doorway has an open pediment resting on
Tuscan columns (Plate 98). Inside, the vestibule has
fielded panelling in two heights; other rooms have
moulded and fluted cornices and moulded dado rails.
The open-string staircase has spandrels with acanthus
scroll-work, slender mahogany balusters, column-shaped
newel-posts and moulded handrails. Several rooms have
original chimneypieces with moulded cornices and fluted
friezes. A large E. room on the first floor was probably
(469) House, No. 52, of three storeys with attics,
with brick walls and a tile-covered roof, has a W. front
nearly identical with that of No. 54 (468) except that
the doorway occupies the centre bay. At present the
building is divided into several tenements. Presumably
the two houses are contemporary.
