Building record MYO1829 - 35 Bootham

Summary

House, No. 35, now of three full storeys with cellars, was built as a two-storey house before 1668 (Deeds), and presumably after the siege of York in 1644. In the middle of the 18th century the third storey was added and the house was extended at the back. Further remodelling in the early 19th century included the addition of a small wing on the N.W. side and the fitting of the present door-case to the entrance.

House, No. 35, now of three full storeys with cellars, was built as a two-storey house before 1668 (Deeds), and presumably after the siege of York in 1644. In the middle of the 18th century the third storey was added and the house was extended at the back. Further remodelling in the early 19th century included the addition of a small wing on the N.W. side and the fitting of the present door-case to the entrance.

On the street front the storeys are separated by brick bands. The doorway is flanked by reeded half-columns and curved brackets carrying a pediment over a semicircular fanlight. The windows are fitted with 19th-century sashes; at the wall head a timber eaves cornice carries a concealed gutter discharging to a lead rainwater head on the side elevation. The plan originally provided three rooms, all with fireplaces, one behind the other. The original staircase was at the side of the chimney between the front and middle rooms; this has been replaced by an 18th-century staircase with turned balusters, and the original staircase has been reset at the back of the house. Other 17th-century fittings remaining consist of a bolection-moulded fireplace surround and a door with two panels set in bolection-moulded framing. Some fittings survive from the 18th and early 19th centuries, including rococo plasterwork to the ceiling over the main staircase and a short stairway to the added wing with cast-iron balusters of quatrefoil section.
