Row of 3 cottages. Circa 1905, probably by Dan Gibson. Plastered walls, probably stone rubble, maybe with brick; stone rubble or brick stacks with plastered chimneyshafts hexagonal in section; slate roofs. Plan: row of 3 cottages set back from the road but facing it to the west, and numbered 1-3 from right to left. No. 2 occupies the centre part of the main block and has a 2-room plan with rear lateral stacks. The outer cottages are L-shaped and have 3-room plans, the third room projecting forward at right angles either side of No. 2 and have projecting lateral stacks on their inner sides (No. 1 and 3 are mirror plans of each other). Either end the main block projects a short distance and its roof is carried down over porches. All 3 are 2 storeys with integral outshots across the rear. Exterior: not quite symmetrical front. The gabled front of each front wing contains two 2-light windows and a first floor 4-light window. The central part of the main block contains the front door left of a 5-light window and at first floor level a 2 and 3-light window each under a gable. All these windows are timber- mullioned casements containing rectangular panes of leaded glass and have simple slate dripcourses above. Either end the porches are supported on a square plastered posts. Nos. 1 and 3 have their original panelled door but No. 2 has a C20 replacement. Main roof is gable-ended. Interior not inspected. These estate cottages are built in a very similar style to nearby Wood House (q.v.) which was also designed by Gibson with Thomas Mawson's landscaping of the grounds.
