Over here a lot of old timberframe buildings had a brick skin added in the 17/18th C. It could be that it has been 'citified' with the addition of the stone quoins and the extra skin of brick, especially as the under layer look far more varied and quite coarse.

The banisters look rather the worse for wear too.
