Nos. 1 and 2 Wisteria Cottages (formerly listed as Nos. 1 and 2 sanders cottages) church road (west side).
Pair of cottages. Early 19th century, with later additions. Solid rendered walls. 20th century concrete-tiled roof (previously listed as thatched) with earlier overhanging eaves. Two rendered chimney stacks on ridge, one on left-hand gable, the other on the party wall between the cottages. At the right-hand end the cottages seem to have been built up against the projecting stack in gable of No. 3.
One-room ground plan, No. 1 (which is relatively little altered) having its staircase against the rear wall.
Two storeys, with semi-basement; single-storey addition at rear of No. 1. Two-window front, each cottage having its front door to the left of the ground-storey window. Each door has a flight of granite steps in front. No. 1 has its original plank door (with small inserted light) in a bead-moulded frame, while No. 2 has a 20th century glazed door. Windows have two-light wood casements with six panes per light, except for the second-storey window of No. 1 which has three panes per light. The ground-storey window of No. 1 contains old glass. Semi-basement of No. 2 has a 20th century window but at No. 1 the original small square opening survives, having a plank door (with small inserted window), on wrought-iron strap-hinges.
Interior of No. 2 considerably altered; interior of No. 1, seen through windows, seems to have no features of great interest, although the simple staircase looks original. Included for group value.
