Snecked local stone with ashlar quoins and yellow brick dressings; stone stacks with red brick chimneyshafts (partly rebuilt in C20); slate roof. Plan: pair of contemporary cottages facing east, No. 11 to left and No. 12 to right. Each is a mirror plan of the other, 1 room wide and 2 deep, either side of 2 axial stacks both of which serve back-to-back fireplaces. Entrance porches each end. 2 storeys with single storey service rooms to rear. Exterior: Symmetrical 4-window front. The windows have low segmental arches over. Most are original timber mullion-and-transom windows with glazing bars but some in No. 12 are circa 1980 uPVC replacements. 3 front gables with shaped bargeboards, the centre one over a limestone plaque carved with the Rolle arms and bearing the date 1876. Main roof is gable-ended. Each end are gabled porches with front doorways; brick-lined Tudor arches with stone hoodmoulds. Both have C20 doors. Interiors: not inspected. A narrow strip of ground along the front is enclosed by original cast iron railings; plain railings and bulbous standards with fleur-de-lys finials. Original gates in the same style. This was a Rolle estate village. The big house, Stevenstone Court (q.v.), now ruined, was rebuilt in 1872-3 and the whole village, including the Church of St Giles (q.v.) was remodelled soon afterwards.
