1/145 Nos. 1, 2 and 3 Garden


Row of 3 cottages. Circa 1905, probably by Dan Gibson. Plastered walls, probably
stone rubble, maybe with brick; stone rubble or brick stacks with plastered
chimneyshafts hexagonal in section; slate roofs.
Plan: row of 3 cottages set back from the road but facing it to the west, and
numbered 1-3 from right to left. No. 2 occupies the centre part of the main block
and has a 2-room plan with rear lateral stacks. The outer cottages are L-shaped and
have 3-room plans, the third room projecting forward at right angles either side of
No. 2 and have projecting lateral stacks on their inner sides (No. 1 and 3 are
mirror plans of each other). Either end the main block projects a short distance
and its roof is carried down over porches. All 3 are 2 storeys with integral
outshots across the rear.
Exterior: not quite symmetrical front. The gabled front of each front wing
contains two 2-light windows and a first floor 4-light window. The central part of
the main block contains the front door left of a 5-light window and at first floor
level a 2 and 3-light window each under a gable. All these windows are timber-
mullioned casements containing rectangular panes of leaded glass and have simple
slate dripcourses above. Either end the porches are supported on a square plastered
posts. Nos. 1 and 3 have their original panelled door but No. 2 has a C20
replacement. Main roof is gable-ended.
Interior not inspected.
These estate cottages are built in a very similar style to nearby Wood House (q.v.)
which was also designed by Gibson with Thomas Mawson's landscaping of the grounds.
