SY 28 NW BRANSCOMBE

8/2 No. 3 (Sunray) and 4 Bank - Cottages

GV II 2 cottages, part of a row. Early-mid C19. Plastered stone rubble; stone rubble or brick stacks with C19 and C20 brick chimneyshafts; slate roof. Plan: pair of contemporary 2-room plan cottages facing south. They are built across the hillslope and the rear is terraced into it. Both cottages have a central entrance hall and staircase between their 2 rooms. The rooms have outer end stacks, that is to say, a gable-end stack at the left (west) end and axial stacks in the party walls serving back-to-back fireplaces. No. 4 is the left end cottage of the row. No. 3 is the right one. They are part of a terrace of 4 similar houses but the straight join in chimneyshaft between Nos. 3 and 2 (q.v.) suggests that the row is made up of 2 pairs of cottages and that this pair (Nos. 3 and 4) are thought to be the earlier pair. The cottages are 2 storeys. Exterior: both cottages have identical original 3-window fronts arranged around a central front doorway which contains an original part-glazed 6-panel door behind a secondary gabled and trellis-walled porch. The windows all have stucco flat arches over with projecting keystones. The first floor centre window is blind and the rest are original 20-pane sashes. There is a stucco quoin strip on the left end corner. The roof is gable-ended to left and to right continues over Nos. 1 and 2 (q.v.). Interior: the carpentry detail is plastered over as it always has been but the interiors of both cottages retain original joinery and other detail.
