Listing Text

TQ 88 NW 1/90

No 87, Herschell House

(Formerly listed as No 87 (Ivy Cottage))

An early C19 timber framed and weather boarded house of two broad bays, on 2 storeys with attic. The house was doubled in brick towards the road in the mid to late C19 with further C20 alterations. It is therefore the original weather-boarded house, now the garden front, that is the feature of interest. The central glazed panelled door is flanked by two storey canted bays with original glazing bar sash lights except to ground floor on right hand where the centre light has been altered unobtrusively to a French window. A mid C19 wooden veranda with scalloped eaves board runs across the ground floor. Fretwork and dentils parapet coping. Pantile roof with 3 dormers.
