REDRUTH STATION HILL SW 64 SE (north side) 11/300 1.12.51 Nos.3 and 4 GV II Pair of houses, now offices. Early C19, slightly altered. Coursed squared granite at the front, uncoursed rubble sides and rear, with quoins; slate roof. Rectangular double-depth plan, each house single-fronted. Two storeys and 3 bays over a basement, on a site which slopes down from right to left so that the basement of No.3 is exposed; symmetrical, in classical style; in the centre, a shallow recessed porch with ashlar architrave in the form of a semi-elliptical arch with imposts, keystone, and cornice, containing coupled doorways with reeded surrounds under a single fanlight which is no longer glazed but has remains of geometrical glazing bars. The ground floor has 2 sashed windows set in round- headed recesses with run-out imposts (but the head of that to the left now covered by a name board), both windows 12-paned except that the lower leaf of that to the right now lacks glazing bars; the 1st floor has three 16-pane sashes; all windows have flat-arched heads with keystones. Projecting eaves, and hipped roof of shallow pitch with chimneys behind the ridge. No.3 to the left has a basement expressed as a plinth, of large ashlar blocks, with a 12-pane sashed window; and the narrow gap between Nos.2 and 3 is filled by a 2-storey screen wall with a door at basement level and a blind window above. Rear: 2 round- headed stair windows with Y-tracery, 12-pane sashes to the principal floors, a 16-pane sash to the basement of No.3, and back doors on 2 levels.
