eyebrow. Right return is plain, left return has stone buttress or former flue,
both ends of roof hipped. At back is projecting stair turret with casement and
an eaves casement; to right are French doors and a further eaves casement. A

A photograph on p.11 of the Kingston History Society booklet (1980) 'Kingston: A
South Hams Village' shows the front of Ivy Cottage before later C20 modifica-
tion. Much of the front wall appears to be in cob, and there is no buttress.
