SX 09 SE MINSTER

1/111 House 45 metres to south of Hill
Cottage
GV II
House. 1887 (datestone). Slate rubble with brick dressings. Slate roof with hipped
ends. Brick axial stack.
Built into side of steeply sloping almost sheer bank with single storey elevation to
road and 2-storey elevation on lower side with deep battered base. The single depth
plan is well designed to accommodate the awkward site and to take advantage of the
exceptional views. The entrance in the side wall probably leads directly into a
stair hall with reception room on lower side (right) and service room against bank on
the left.
2 storeys. Regular two window front elevation on lower side with battered base.
Brick segmental arches to openings with two 24-pane sashes on ground floor and two
20-pane sashes on first. Datestone in left hand side wall.
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,
Glenfinart, Penrowan, Belmont and Polqueens (qv).
