MOUNT ROAD 1. 5270 Whippingham Coburg (Formerly listed as Coburg Cottages) SZ 59 SW 7/70 17.8.51. II* 2. Circa 1853. The whole Barton Manor Estate, of which these form part, was purchased by Queen Victoria and the Prince Consort in 1853 and formed part of the Osborne Estate until the Queen's death. These 2 cottages were built by the Prince Consort about 1853 and are a reproduction of peasant cottages in Coburg. Two storeys and 5 windows to east front. The gable ends have 3 storeys, 3 windows on ground and 1st floors and 2 windows on 2nd or attic storey. The ground floor is faced with cement with ornamental woodwork superimposed to represent elaborate timbering. The 1st floor is hung with slates unusually shaped like a fan hung with the point upwards and painted with festoons of flowers in white. Wide overhanging bracket eaves built to facilitate the fall of snow off the roof away from the windows with painted band. Concavely-curved or chinoiserie style roof of pantiles with gable ends north and south. Cemented chimneystacks. Wooden verandah in the centre of the ground floor with baluster-shaped columns supporting the eaves. Casement windows. Two casement windows with wooden surrounds. These cottages are particularly interesting because of the Prince Consort's involvement and the rarity of the style in England.
