Description

Circa 1860. Single storey and attic 3-bay simple classical house. Coursed pink granite. Symmetrical S (garden) elevation with dominant central timber Doric porch and deeply eaved gabled dormers, breaking eaves. Flanking windows with decorative timber console detail above. Boarded timber door with simple 4-pane rectangular fanlight above.

To S, 12-pane timber sash and case windows to ground, vertical 6-pane timber sash and case to attic. Grey graded slates. Raised coped skews. Gable stacks.

INTERIOR: original room plan largely unaltered in main part of house. Fine timber banister with curved detail at 1st storey. 4-panel timber doors, with some unusually deep skirting to public rooms. Some original iron fire surrounds with simple classical chimneypieces.

BOUNDARY WALLS: high rubble wall with rubble coping to E side of garden, running toward the River Dee.

Statement of Interest

A good example of a little altered simple Victorian classical house with an unusual Doric porch and distinctive deeply eaved gabled dormers. The vertical panes in the attic dormers are an especially unusual feature for this area. A particular feature of this house is its retention of a direct path from the main door to the River Dee.

The house forms the W side of a group of dwellings arranged around a garden courtyard which faces the River Dee. It is situated close to Inchley (see separate listing) and both are orientated toward the River Dee.
