1/111 House 45 metres to south of Hill
House. 1887 (datestone). Slate rubble with brick dressings. Slate roof with hipped
ends. Brick axial stack.

stair hall with reception room on lower side (right) and service room against bank on
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).
