House. Early C19 remodelling of an early C18 building with a
late C19 wing to the right. Stucco with a steeply-pitched
hipped thatched roof to the garden front with rendered stacks
to the sides, double-pitched slate roofs to the rear block
with a stack to the rear right. Probably originally 2-unit
plan, with an early C19 front range forming a double-depth
plan with the single-storey late C19 right wing; rear lean-to.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys with attic. The entrance in the left
return, facing the street, has an early C19 reeded doorcase
with blocks to the upper corners and a small modillion
cornice, raised moulding to the panels of the reveals and a
painted-over overlight with a pointed-arched pane to the
centre and radial glazing bars; this is enclosed by a late C19
glazed porch with a fretted bargeboard to the gable. The 1st
floor of the 3-window garden front has moulded architraves to
pointed-arched French windows with Y tracery to the overlights
and delicate cast-iron trellised balcony guards. Central
dormer has a 2-light casement window with a false painted
similar overlight. Late C19 canted bays to the ground floor
support a wooden trellised verandah.
INTERIOR: the entrance hall to the left return has a narrow
open-well open-string staircase, has a painted wreathed
handrail and curtail step and a semicircular-arched recess to
the left. 6-panel doors to the ground floor, 4-panel doors to
the 1st floor, planked doors to the attic. The kitchen to the
rear right has a former open fireplace to the angle of the
corner, and the wall between the rear and front ranges is over
0.6m, probably a former exterior wall.
A good example of early C19 cottage ornee.
