672-1/5/180 (South side)
Woodside and Astolat


Pair of adjoining houses. Probably 1850s. Roughcast, return
walls slate-hung; slate roof with sprocketted eaves; stacks
with brick shaft and old pots.
Plan: Mirror plan houses, each with front doors to left and
right. Exterior: 2 storeys, attic and basement. 3:3 bay front,
the centre bay broken forward. Deep eaves with eaves brackets,
platbands at first floor level. Each house has steps up to a
recessed 5-panel front door with panelled reveals and a plain
overlight. Flat porch canopy on moulded consoles. Originally
12-pane C19 sash windows to the ground and first floor in the
centre bays only. Woodside has C20 replaced windows, but
respecting the original embrasures and the porch hood is
missing. Attractive slate-hung returns, Astolat with a pair of
round-headed attic windows. The wedge-shaped garden area in
the front is bounded by ramped coped brick walls with
chamfered granite gate piers with pyramidal caps. These walls
match those of Wistaria (q.v.), the neighbouring house to the
Interior: Not inspected but likely to contain original
This is an attractive pair of smart C19 town houses on the
western edge of Crediton, combining polite detail with the
Devon vernacular tradition of slate-hanging. The garden walls
suggest that, like Wistaria, these houses were a development
by Berry of Berry and Vincent, local builders who developed
parts of the town in the C19 (q.v. Grove Terrace and No 1
Church Street).
