Small house. Mid C19. Plastered stone rubble; end stacks with
exposed and plastered brick chimneyshafts with pots; slate
PLAN: Double-depth, 2 rooms wide with central passage and rear
staircase. Secondary service front doorway to right, to
passage to unheated rear service room. Principal rooms to
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys; 2-window range. Plastered front is
lightly blocked out as ashlar with flanking end pilasters.
Main front doorway right of centre with moulded stucco
surround and console brackets to moulded entablature; recessed
door of 2 vertical panels under an overlight with glazing
bars. Service doorway to right has door with small top-glazed
panels and 2 vertical panels below. Ground-floor window to
left in shallow bay; flanking round-headed panels and moulded
cornice. First-floor windows have small shoulders to flat
arches and moulded architraves with keystones. All windows are
horned 4-pane sashes. Plain eaves to parallel roof,
gable-ended to left as it steps up the hill.
INTERIOR: Surprisingly good for such a small house. Top-lit
stair rises round a wall but manages to include mahogany
handrail and stick balusters. Principal rooms have moulded
plaster cornices and panelled doors (inner porch door with
coloured glass in margin glazing). There is no original
kitchen and it is unusual for such a small house to have a
separate service entrance, indicating that it was possibly
built as a holiday cottage. One of a group of similar small
houses and listed buildings at the bottom of Ridge Hill.
