Each is a mirror plan of the other, 1 room wide and 2 deep, either side of 2 central
axial stacks both of which serve back-to-back fireplaces. Entrance porches in each
end wall. 2 storeys with single storey service rooms to rear.
Exterior: Symmetrical 4-window front. The windows have low segmental arches over.
No. 9 still has original timber mullion-and-transom windows with glazing bars but No.
10 has circa 1980 uPVC windows. 3 front gables with shaped bargeboards, the centre
one over a limestone plaque carved with the Rolle arms and with an illegible date.
Main roof is gable-ended. Each end are gabled porches with front doorways; brick-

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.
