Coastguard buildings, including Boat House, Seamens Quarters, Officers Quarters and Wash House

[Caws, S. and Brinton, R. 1983. 'Cowes and East Cowes Past and Present', p.44, Isle of Wight County Council]
Coastguard buildings survive. Virtually unaltered at front but wiith later additions behind. The Officers Quarters (Solent View) is now a tea room.

[Field visit, R. Loader, 5.11.1998 (coastal audit)]
Range of coastguards cottages, later cottages. Built in 1882 in Gothic style. Symmetrical range built of yellow brick with red brick lintels and stone dressings, slate roof and 10 ribbed brick chimneystacks with stone coping. Two storeys, with attics to projecting gables only; twenty five windows in all, two or three windows to each cottage.
EXTERIOR: The front or north west elevation has four projecting gables with kneeler, lunettes to attic and a round-headed arch to the first floor windows. The other windows are single or paired pointed headed sash windows, except for the ground floor under the gables and the penultimate ground floor square bay windows which have three lights. All are late C19 sashes with horns and without glazing bars, but some windows were replaced in the later C20 in uPVC. Stone band between floors. Arched doorcases with half-glazed doors. The rear or south east elevation is similar except that a number of later C20 flat-roofed one storey brick extensions have been added.
HISTORY: These coastguard cottages were built on reclaimed land replacing earlier cottages in the town.
A symmetrical range of purpose-built coastguards cottages of 1882 in Gothic style, substantially as built and part of a group also comprising the former coastguard officer's house, boathouse and washhouse which comprised East Cowes Coastguard Station.
[16th Amendment of the 4th List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest: Isle of Wight Council, DCMS, 20th September 2004, 491568, Coastguard Cottages, nos 1-15 consec.]
Former coastguard officers house, now house. Built in 1882 in Gothic style. Built in yellow brick in flemish bond with red brick lintels, stone dressings and slate roof with four brick chimneystacks.
PLAN: Detached building, square on plan of two storeys with three windows to the front and two to the sides. Windows are pointed arched sashes with horns but without glazing bars.
EXTERIOR: The front or north west elevation has a single sash to the centre first floor flanked by paired sashes. The ground floor has a central pointed headed doorcase with a paired pointed arched window to the right and a square bay to the left with three pointed headed sashes. There are end gables with kneelers and semi-external chimneystacks and single or paired windows to the side elevations. The rear elevation has two gables with kneelers and chimneystacks to the ridges.
An unaltered 1884 Gothic style Officers House to a coastguard station which also comprised coastguard cottages and former washhouse and boathouse.
[16th Amendment of the 4th List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest: Isle of Wight Council, DCMS, 20th September 2004, 492456, Solent View (Former Officers' House)]
Former boathouse, later converted into three houses. Built in 1882 as the boathouse to the East Cowes Coastguard Station. Later C20 refenestration and extension. Gothic style. Built of yellow brick in Flemish bond with brick lintels and slate roof with yellow brick chimneystacks. Asymmetrical building of one to two storeys, part with attic, and irregular fenestration of pointed arched sash windows, many now replaced in uPVC. The north western elevation has a projecting gable with kneelers, a triple window to first floor and wide ground floor arch, originally for boat storage, the opening now filled-in and a window inserted. The return to the right side of this gable also has a projecting gable with single light window to the first floor and later bay to the ground floor, inserted when a lean-to concrete extension was added. To the south west are two one storey gables with wide arches below, originally used for boat storage but filled in and windows inserted in the later C20. There is a further one storey range to the north west with end gables and some altered windows.
