1/246 Nos 1 and 2 Crockhurst Farm


Pair of cottages. Late C19. Flemish bond red brick with decorative burnt
headers and buff-yellow coloured bricks used on the corners, windows and
extensively in the chimneyshafts for decorative effect, most often looking
like quoins; brick stacks and large divided chimneyshafts with projecting
bands; red tile roof.

Plan: Pair of contemporary cottages facing east with No 1 to right (north)
and No 2 to left (south). Each cottage is a mirror-plan of the other and has
an L-shaped plan, an inner room in the main block and outer crosswing room
projecting forward each end. Axial stacks in each cottage serves back-to-back
fireplaces. Entrances through porches towards the rear of the crosswings.

Cottages are 2 storeys.

Exterior: Overall symmetrical 1:2:1-window front of late C19 and C20
replacement casements with glazing bars. All the windows have low brick
segmental arches over except the 2 first floor central windows which have
gables over. Gabled porches project each end and have elliptical-headed front
arches with gables over and contain original doors with herringbone plank
patterns. All the gables have original wavey bargeboards.

Interior: Not inspected.

This pair of cottages, built for the Somerhill Estate, are a good and very
complete pair of late C19 cottages and form a group with Nos 1-4 Crockhurst
Street Cottages (q.v.) opposite.
