Property name

L'Abordage

Location

Rue du Crocquet, St Aubin

Type of property

18th century town house on St Aubin's High Street

Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

A vernacular townhouse, of 18th century and possibly earlier date, retaining features of architectural and historical interest, and making an important contribution to the High Street. Shown on the Richmond Map of 1795.

Although certainly 18th century, with possible 17th century origins, this property was refurbished in the 1980s when some traditional architectural features were introduced from reclaimed sources - including the keystone and springers forming the round arch doorway and some internal features.

Two-storey, three-bay house. Pantile roof, massive granite chimney stacks at ends, with dripstones. Granite walls rendered to side and rear, front random granite with exceptionally large quoin stones visible to the right hand gable, granite lintels, sills and window/door surrounds.

The front of the house is overbuilt by Caesarea Cottage, the front wall of which runs into the left-hand jambs of the two left-hand windows.
