Listing Text


8/23 Rosemary Cottage
(Formerly listed as
20.12.60 Rosemary & Calpe)


House of zig-zag form, at least 2 previous dwellings. Late C18, early C20. A
mixture of wall finishes with a tile roof. The rear unit of 2 storeys, 4 upper
windows, was probably 2 cottages, and has flint walls with brick dressings (also
partly rendered) C20 tile roof, C20 casements & two old beams within. The block
adjoining the roadway (mainly early C20) is of 2 storeys, 2 windows, with hipped
½-dormers, tile-hung 1st floor, rendered ground-floor (which extends as a single-
storeyed wing at the west side), casements, one old door and another with a
Victorian gabled shallow porch. The link unit is of painted brickwork, with a part-
catslide roof, some cambered openings, & C20 casements. This much-altered building
is the only one of a substantial group with a tile roof (due-to the previous thatched
roof being destroyed by fire). Included for group value.
