Rolle. Snecked local stone with ashlar quoins and yellow brick dressings; stone
stacks with red brick chimneyshafts (partly rebuilt in C20); slate roof.

stacks both of which serve back-to-back fireplaces. Entrance porches each end. 2
storeys with single storey service rooms to rear.

Most are original timber mullion-and-transom windows with glazing bars but some in

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;

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.
