FORRABURY AND NEW ROAD, Boscastle
SX 09 SE MINSTER
House. 1887. Slate stone rubble with brick dressings. Slate roof with hipped ends.
Brick axial stack.
Built into side of a steeply sloping almost sheer bank with single storey elevation
to road and 2-storey elevation on lower side with deep battered base. The double
depth plan is well designed to accommodate the awkward site and to take advantage of
the exceptional views. The entrance is in the side wall and probably leads directly
into a wide passage with stair against the bank (to left) and two reception rooms on
lower side (right) which are heated by back-to-back fireplaces. The service room is
probably accommodated to the rear of the stair against the bank on the left.
Two storeys. 4 window front elevation on lower side with battered base. Two-storey
canted bay projection to left with 3 sashes. To right, two 20-pane sashes on ground
floor and double sash on first. The left hand side elevation has a flight of stone
rubble steps with iron railings leading down from the road to the entrance.
Interior not inspected.
Forms part of a group of similar houses overlooking a steep-sided combe leading down
to Boscastle Harbour; the other houses are Valley View, Lewarne, Meachard, Penrowan,
Belmont and Polqueens.
