SW 63 SW CROWAN LEEDSTOWN

4/160 Nos 1 and 2 St James's Cottage -

GV II

Former account house (or count house), now 2 cottages. Circa early C19. Painted rubble with dressed granite quoins, sills, jambstones and lintels. Asbestos slate roof with gable ends, sweeping lower over the wider entrance front. Brick chimneys over the axial middle wall at either end. Double depth plan. 2 identical 1 room wide cottages at the entrance front (south) with 2 cross passages adjoining at the middle. The rear is taller, 2 storeys over a basement, the ground floor presumably service rooms or offices, the 1st floor originally the main office or board room, originally probably 1 room, now a bedroom for each cottage. 2 storeys. Nearly symmetrical 2 window entrance front with a pair of doorways towards the middle. C20 doors and windows except the 4-pane horned sashes of the left hand cottage which may be C19. Symmetrical 2 storey over basement 2 window rear, the 1st floor windows taller and the eaves level much higher up. 2 very small basement windows disposed slightly left of the other windows. The larger windows are 4-pane horned sashes. Interior not inspected. This is a curious, probably unique building. It is either a purpose built count house incorporating 2 cottages into the design, or possibly a count house converted into 2 cottages by adding the front. It has been suggested that it was originally an engine house which was converted. Compare the design of this count house to that of Godolphin Count House qv, Breage Parish.
