Re: Re: ‘Dutch Billys’
This is a stab at a mock up of the original appearance of 41 Stephen’s Green, which is one of the five remaining former twin ‘Dutch Billys’ that I’ve been able to identify. and the corresponding existing view showing the present Victorian dormers. The two houses to the right are standard ‘Dutch Billys’ altered in Georgian times to conform to the flat parapet fashion of the day.
a reconstruction of the facade as I believe it to have appeared.
The rear of no. 41 showing the twin gables and original return (on the right) and the rear of no. 43 showing a standard ‘Billy’ in mint condition.
Some interior shots of no. 41 showing the panelling and the fine staircase which, like the Bachelor’s walk example, was located at the front of the house (up to first floor level)
