to Endsleigh House (qv). Dressed stone rubble with stone dressings to the front,
brick to the rear. Gabled slate roofs with rendered stacks on the ridge, ornamental
slate hanging in the gables. 2 symmetrical adjoining cottages with Picturesque

have side entrances with rustic porches with slate roofs carried on a timber post, a
chamfered string course, deep eaves with bargeboards and 2 gables to the front, and 2
gables to the sides, the rear side gable being slightly advanced. Front and side
windows throughout have cast iron diamond panes. 2 storeys. 2-window symmetrical
front with 2 ground floor canted bay windows with casements with high transoms in
chamfered stone architraves. 2 first floor 2-light casements in chamfered stone
architraves, ornamental slate hanging to the gables.
Interior not inspected.
The cast iron panes to the windows are an distinctive feature.
