12/11 River Cottage
by the footbridge
over The New River


House. C17 remodelled in early C19 (probably c1811) by W C Mylne
as his house, altered 1891 by Robert Mylne (date and initials on
plastered chimney). Oldest part probably timerframed, cased in
red brick. Newer parts buff brick. Steep old red tile roofs
with sinuous C19 bargeboards to gables on each face. A 2-storeys
L-shaped house facing W. Front has an old red brick gabled wing
on the right with sinuous bargeboard and tilehung apex to gable
and 3-light window over square tiled bay window, and a tiled
gable porch. Buff brick wing extending to left has a 3-light
window on each floor, the lower with segmental red brick arch,
and an internal gable chimney with decorative terra-cotta pots.
Projecting gable on N side of rear wing has Mylne crest on an
oval plaque, as at The Flint House q.v. Formerly the farmhouse of
Thorpe's Farm figuring in many C18 topographical drawings of
Amwell. A very picturesque Cottage Ornee associated with the
Mylne family. Part of the landscaped composition at Amwell Road.
