Wolverhampton's Locally Listed Buildings

34 Oaks Crescent
(including the adjoining coach house)

Local Listing: Locally listed in 2004. Dates from circa 1850 and is in the Tudor Revival style.  It has rendered elevations under steeply pitched clay tile roofs.  Three courses of plain tiles alternate with three courses of fish-scale tiles running the full height of the roof slopes and there are crested ridge tiles (some missing).  The front elevation incorporates a two-storey projecting gable porch and the porch, end gables and dormer windows have mock timber framing and elaborate, pierced bargeboards.  A contemporary, two-storey coach house in matching materials and details adjoins to the north.

Comment:  The local listing details appear in the appraisal for the Oaks (Merridale Road) Conservation Area, in which this house stands;  it is therefore somewhat more detailed than usual.  Certainly a remarkable design, with the coach house being even more remarkable. Unfortunately it seems impossible to get a decent photo of the entirety.
