14 Beaufort Square in Chepstow, Monmouthshire, Wales, is a townhouse of medieval origins. The present building was mainly constructed in the early 19th century. It is a Grade II* listed building.

History[edit]

The origin of the building is medieval.[1] Its basement, which also runs under No.13, Raglan Lodge, has a vaulted medieval roof which may have been the roof of a 14th-century moot hall.[1] The building above the basement is 19th century.[1] In the 20th and 21st centuries, No.14, which is also known as Richmond House, has been used predominantly for commercial purposes and the building currently houses a tattoo parlour on the ground floor and commercial offices and flats above.[2]

Architecture and description[edit]

The house is of three storeys, with an attic and basement.[1] The building is in a Regency style, of a similar date to the adjoining Raglan Lodge.[1] A balcony originally on the first floor has been removed.[1] The roof of the medieval basement incorporates "two carved stone heads".[1] The house is Grade II* listed.[1]
