SX 47 NW MILTON ABBOT THE PARADE, Milton Abbot
10/266 Nos 18-20 (Consec)
3 estate cottages. Circa 1909 designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens for the Duke of Bedford
as part of the planned village centre of Milton Abbot. Hurdwick stone rubble. Slate
hipped roof swept down to stone corbelled eaves courses, the eaves broken by hipped
half-dormers. The hipped ends are brought down to a lower level than the eaves at
the front and rear and the stepper pitch creates a break in the slating, near the
hips, a quirky feature typical of Lutyens. 2 short stone stacks on ridge, stone
stacks at ends. L-plan block with 1 cottage facing south and 2 facing west.
Vernacular revival, and a continuation of the architectural character of nos. 14-17
(qv). 2 storeys. 6-window symmetrical west front with front doors with chamfered
stopped architraves and integral rectangular fanlights under flat canopies carried
on moulded timber brackets. The central ground floor windows are 4-light canted
bays, 2-panes per light under flat stone arches. 2 first floor windows are small 3-
pane casements under the eaves, 4 are 2-light casements, 2-panes per light in hipped
half-dormers. The south elevation has similar fenestration. The raking roofs of the
north and east elevations have a quirky junction with the hipped ends of the block.
Interior not inspected.
