45 St Owen Street

In 1963 Nikolaus Pevsner described St Owen Street as ‘the most consistent Georgian street in Hereford’. This 4-storey, late C18, Grade 2 house is typical, and a good example of its type, with a fine 6-panel moulded door and door case with a fanlight.

The house contains a fine period oak staircase, and a quirky decorative internal fanlight. Gauged brick flat arches over the windows have unfortunately been rendered and painted. This measured survey was undertaken in 1981. Since then the second floor sash windows have been reinstated to the original proportions, but the mid-Victorian decorative pierced window hoods to the first floor windows have been lost.
