HELMINGHAM - TM15NE 4/10008 Estate Cottages, nos 17 and 18


Pair of estate cottages, c1840, perhaps to the designs of Anthony Salvin who was active at Helmingham Hall (qv). in c1841. Brick in Flemish bond with moulded brick stack to party wall. Pantile roofs with ornamental vergeboards to gables and half dormer, and slightly swept eaves. Two storeys with outshut to rear. The elevation exactly the inverse of nos 15 and 16. Doors of original design. Ground-floor windows to right to facing gable and to right of party wall with glazing in an authentic pattern. Picturesque style combining vernacular forms with those of the 'cottage orne' tradition. Cottages 3-8, 15-20, the Estate Yard, the Old Post Office near the cross roads to the north, and the Old Forge form a group.
