A pair of Grade II Listed estate cottages, now a single house, with strong architectural form. The property stands in mature gardens and grounds of just over an acre with countryside views and requires a certain amount of modernisation.

Dating back to approximately 1908, the properties are believed to have been built for the estate head groom and head gardener of Westbury Manor (now Beechbourough private school) by Lord and Lady Scott who owned the estate from the early 1890's to 1930's. Constructed of coursed ironstone, the cottages were built as a pair of two-bay symmetrical cottages under a single hipped roof. Each was originally of two main ground floor rooms with stairs in the outer bay behind an entrance porch. Attached to east is a single-storey wing which now provides a self-contained annexe.

The party walls have been removed to create a single house. Stairs remain at each end of the building. The south facing rooms have been opened up to form one space which has a replaced fireplace and the inner bays have gables each with a mullion window, with single-pane metal-framed casements. A pair of corner fireplaces set at an angle remain in the former north-facing rooms.

Doors of four panels remain throughout the house. On the first floor an internal corridor links the two stair wells with access to four bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Predominatley laid to lawn, the gardens are mature, overgrown in parts and enclosed by mature hedgerow boundaries. The gardens are complimented by an array of mature trees and bushes providing natural screening and privacy.
