stair hall with reception room on lower side (right) and service against bank on the
Two storeys. 2 window regular front elevation on lower side with battered base and
brick segmental arches to openings. Two 24-pane sashes on ground floor and two 20-
pane sashes on first.
Interior not inspected.

to Boscastle Harbour; the other houses are Valley View, Lewarne, Meachard,
Glenfinart, Penrowan, and Belmont.
