Kirkstyle Cottages   

Kirkstyle Cottages are located on Kirkshaws Road, Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire.

The cottages were built for the Rev Sholto Douglas of the Douglas Support estate, probably for estate employees.

Architect: Thomas Smith, dated 1904; additions to E gable of eastmost block dated 1913. 2 pairs of single storey and attic, Tudor-style, near identical and symmetrical, semi-detached cottages. Half timbered and harled, slate roofs with terracotta ridge tiles, modern terracotta-type tiles to oriels, tall brick stacks balustraded to top with fishscale-tiled gabled caps. Multi-pane timber casement windows, some with out-of-character modern replacements, oriels to ground floor, gabled dormers above. Jettied attic floor, plain bargeboards.
FRONT ELEVATION: each pair of cottages comprises central block with 2 oriels at ground floor flanked by single windows, terracotta panel at centre, terracotta date panel at centre of jettied at attic floor, 2 dormers, lychgate-type entrance porches to left and right, single storey bays to far left and right with oriel window and swept roof (except E cottage of westmost block). Return gables, each slightly different, outshot at right return of westmost block.
REAR ELEVATION: similar to front elevation.
