ST5113 WEST COKER CP HIGH STREET (North side)

9/303 No.68 - GV II

One of a terrace of six houses. Dated 1887. Ham stone cut and squared, with ashlar dressings; plain clay tiles with moulded ridges between coped gables; brick chimney stack. 2-storeys, 2-bays of which the left-habd projects. Chamfered mullioned windows with original casements, 2-lights below, 3-lights above, bay-1; above the gable is not coped but overhangs with decorated bargeboards; to bay-2, on normal plane, a 4-centre moulded arched doorway with matching small sidelights, above a panel of fish-scale tiles into which is set a casement window - a handed version, but not an exact copy, of No.66 to East (qv). Interior not seen. A remarkably well detailed house with deliberate 'spoiled symmetry', in the style of Norman Shaw, and prophetic of the early 'Garden City' houses; an early and little changed example.
