DescriptionSwiss Cottage is a beautiful detached three-bay two-storey Tudor-style house with half-dormer attic, c.1880, on an L-shaped plan with single-bay single-storey flat-roofed advanced porch, single-bay two-storey side elevations to east and to west having single-bay single-storey flat-roofed projecting bay to west, single-bay two-storey return to south, and two-bay single-storey flat-roofed range alongside (east) elevation.
Extended, c.1980, comprising three-bay single-storey lean-to range along rear (south) elevation. Pitched and hipped slate roofs with clay ridge tiles, rendered chimney stacks, and cast-iron rainwater goods on timber eaves. Flat roofs to porches and to return not visible behind parapets. Lean-to artificial slate roof to additional range with rendered coping, and plastic rainwater goods. Painted rendered walls with rendered stepped buttresses, and rendered parapets to porches and to return.
The property is set back from the road in own grounds with entrance via electron gate, tarmacadam drive to front and a large car park in gravel. It has landscaped grounds to site with mature scrubs surrounding, large garden set in lawn and a paved patio area. It has the benefit of a large shed for storage and gas-fired central heating.
Swiss Cottage is an attractive house of balanced proportions, and distinctive features. The reserved Tudor detailing, including characteristics such as stepped buttresses, serves to produce a cohesive external appearance to the complex arrangement of main block, return, and additional bays. The house has been well maintained, retaining much of its original form and massing.
Swiss Cottage is situated on the Newtown Road which runs adjacent to the People's Park. One of the most desirable residential areas in Waterford, Newtown is situated c. 805 meters from the city centre. The area incorporates a number of outstanding Victorian and Georgian homes, many of which have been extremely well preserved and still retain many of their period features.
The property itself is situated just opposite the De La Salle school grounds. Other schools in the nearby vicinity include Waterpark College (c. 62m away), Newtown School (c. 400m away), Presentation Primary & Secondary (c. 2.1km away) and Mercy Primary and Secondary (c. 2.2km away).
