3/12 West Hillside and Hillside East


Pair houses. Dated 1889. Local red brick with yellow brick decorations. Flemish bond, with Ham stone dressings; Welsh slate roof with plain terra-cotta ridges, plain overhung gables with decorative bargeboards. Brick chimney stacks; the large central stack, 4 flues set diagonally, forms a tall and prominent feature. Two storeys; north elevation of 6 bays irregular fenestration, of which bays 2, 3 and 4 form the main block. Stone plinth, coloured brick banding, quoins and dressings to openings. Bay 1 in form of east crosswing, 2 storeys but cut into hill so that first floor is now a garage, with doors in north gable. Main block has segmental-arched 2-light casements: bays 5 and 6 narrower on plan and set lower, all to match. Doorways between bays 2/3 and in a lean-to against lower bay 5: single-storey projection from between bays 3/4 having large chimney stack at north end. East end gable has projecting chimney stack and a datestone, shield-shaped, reading VP/1889. South elevation to match. Interiors not seen. The pair of houses built on the site of a brickworts and sawmills, on a prominent hillside site overlooking the village, presumably intended to promote the use of brickwork in what is a predominantly stone area. Some brickworks buildings survive to the north of the houses, but now adapted and not of special interest. Haselbury Brickyard was owned by the Portman family and presumably the initials 'VP' refer to a member of that family.
