Full description

Department of Environment, 1989, West Exe Spot List (Un-published). SDV349237.

Nos 11 - 13 Leat Street. Terrace of three working-class or artisans' houses. Probably built about 1900. Red brick, laid in Flemish bond; chamfered plinth. Cast-iron window-sills. Slated roofs. Two red-brick chimneys on the party-walls and one on left end-wall, each with projecting courses at the top forming an entablature; five spiked pots per chimney. Exterior: two storeys with garrets. Each house has one window per storey to left, doorway to right. All openings segmental-headed. Four-panelled doors, the two lower panels flush; plain fanlight. Nos 12 and 13 have cast-iron knockers. Two-paned sashes. Deeply-projecting eaves-cornice with light moulding on the edge. Three gabled dormers with slate-hung sides and projecting, bargeboarded eaves; Two-light wood casements with two panes per light. Plinth has patterned iron ventilator-grilles. Rear wall is similar to the front with two-paned sash windows. Projecting closet-wings of different sizes. Interiors not inspected. These were Heathcoat-built houses, plain in character but with good detailing; the eaves-cornices are unusually prominent for this date, matching those of the earlier houses on either side.
