House. 1849 (Cleland), incorporating part of an earlier cottage in West Street,
alterations of the late C20. Colourwashed and stuccoed, probably stone with some cob
at the rear ; slate roof, gabled at ends with deep eaves with moulded curved eaves
brackets ; end stacks with rendered shafts, end stack to rear wing.
Plan: Set back from the road behind a tall garden wall (q.v.). Approximate L plan, a
single-depth block, 2 rooms wide, principal rooms to the front with a central
entrance into a passage containing the stair ; service wing to the rear right is a
remodelling of an earlier cottage (information from owner). Late C20 alterations to
the front elevation which originally had a verandah of the local type with solid end
walls, subsequently converted to carry the late C20 balcony and removed at the left
end where the front left room has been extended.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical (originally symmetrical) 3-bay front with a
gabled dormer in the centre and a first floor C20 balcony with an ironwork
balustrade. Half-glazed front door in central bay, verandah on front at right
supported on timber posts with a round-headed niche in the solid right end wall with
pretty mid C19 hexagonal floor tiling ; 8 over 12-pane sash to right of front door.
To the left of the front door the verandah has been infilled with a C20 timber French
window with glazing bars, similar first floor French windows to left and right and to
gabled dormer. Windows on the other elevations are early C19 small pane sashes.
Interior: Early C19 features intact with shutters, other joinery, plaster cornices
and a stair with stick balusters and a ramped wreathed handrail.
Sited on the corner of Fore and West Streets and important in the streetscape.
