Elizabeth Cottages
Description
Elizabeth Cottages is a single-sided cul-de-sac of two-storey terraced cottages in the Kew Gardens conservation area of Richmond-upon-Thames, leading off Sandycombe Road by the Kew Gardens Hotel. Believed to have been built in around 1880, these relatively unaltered artisans' cottages comprising three blocks of five cottages, each central one standing slightly forward with a transverse ridge and gable, are listed locally as Buildings of Townscape Merit. A detached cottage of similar design at Number 16 was added around twenty years later. This view, partly obscured by trees and shrubs in the front gardens and a concrete lamp post, shows the entire row, numbers 1-5 being most prominent. During the early 1980s, the symmetry of the first block was lost at it was extended by a single cottage added to the near end of the terrace, now at 1A, number 1's roofline being remodelled and its side entrance as shown replaced with a new front entrance in place of one of the ground-floor windows. An Austin or Morris 1100 is shown parked in number 1's drive in front of a coupe-style saloon, obscured by a brick side wall. The lamp post has since been replaced by a heritage-friendly lantern with an ornate cast iron post. Many of the front gardens now have maturing trees and shrubs. The house with offset dormer windows just visible to the right of view is the rear of one of the larger two-storey Victorian houses on Ennerdale Road.
