4-pane and plate glass glazing pattern in sash and case windows, casement windows in dormers. Grey slates, graded on circular section. Coped ashlar stacks with cans, thackstanes.

Statement of Interest

Until recently part of the Dunearn estate, the Cottage predates the present Dunearn House. There is a fine droved ashlar outbuilding which has been extensively modernised but retains a 3-hole pigeon loft to the W and moulded skewputts. In true cottage orne lines, we may presume the cottage was originally thatched.
