- railings


Pair of former estate cottages. Dated 1876 for the Honourable Mark George Kerr
Rolle. Snecked local stone with ashlar quoins and yellow brick dressings; stone
stacks with red brick chimneyshafts (partly rebuilt in C20); slate roof.
Plan: pair of contemporary cottages facing east, No. 11 to left and No. 12 to right.
Each is a mirror plan of the other, 1 room wide and 2 deep, either side of 2 axial
stacks both of which serve back-to-back fireplaces. Entrance porches each end. 2
storeys with single storey service rooms to rear.
Exterior: Symmetrical 4-window front. The windows have low segmental arches over.
Most are original timber mullion-and-transom windows with glazing bars but some in
No. 12 are circa 1980 uPVC replacements. 3 front gables with shaped bargeboards, the
centre one over a limestone plaque carved with the Rolle arms and bearing the date
1876. Main roof is gable-ended. Each end are gabled porches with front doorways;
brick-lined Tudor arches with stone hoodmoulds. Both have C20 doors.
Interiors: not inspected.
A narrow strip of ground along the front is enclosed by original cast iron railings;
plain railings and bulbous standards with fleur-de-lys finials. Original gates in
the same style.
This was a Rolle estate village. The big house, Stevenstone Court (q.v.), now
ruined, was rebuilt in 1872-3 and the whole village, including the Church of St Giles
(q.v.) was remodelled soon afterwards.
