No. 47 Spenser Road, is a semi detached 3-storey family dwelling house at the north east side of Spenser Road. It forms part of a terrace of two houses with bay windows at the lower and upper ground floors and a london roof. Externally the house has a white paint-on-brick finish. At the rear of the property, there is a two storey extension with a small footprint on the south side and a fairly new addition, a rear lower ground floor single storey ‘infill’ extension. The lower ground floor and whole of the rear extension, show singificant signs of damp and disrepair. The owners want to treat the dampness issues with appropriate damp proofing internally and wish to reinstate the rear extension with the addition of a bathroom at the landing level, between ground and first floors.
