1842. Single storey and attic L-plan cottage with pedimented skewputted dormers breaking wallhead. 3-bay symmetrical elevation to W (street) elevation. Possible later nineteenth century addition at NW. White painted harl with pink granite margins. Timber 6-panel door with timber pilaster jambs and narrow 2-light fan light and granite console detail above in re-entrant angle to S (garden) elevation.
FURTHER DESCRIPTION: irregular N elevation, to right, blank gable wall. To left, 4-panel timber door with narrow timber pilasters and fan light. 2 windows to ground and 20th century dormer above.
Predominantly 12-pane timber sash and case windows on E section. 4-pane on N section. Grey slate. Raised coped skews. Gable stacks.
INTERIOR: although modernised, much of the original floorplan remains discernible.
This is a good example of a traditionally built cottage with a largely unaltered street façade to W. It is especially distinguished by its pedimented and skewputted dormerheads, its white harl and contrasting pink granite dressings and it adds considerable value to the streetscape. The cottage forms the NW corner of a group of houses situated around a courtyard which once had an uninterrupted view to the River Dee. Much of this vista has been lost due to 20th century building.
It is likely that the E section of this house was earlier with the W a later 19th century addition as the dormerheads on the E section are of a simpler design and the remains of a door opening was discerned in the centre of the E street elevation section by the current owner. Some remains of railway iron work has been used in the structure of the house.
Changed from category B to C(S) in 2006.
