Model Cottage was designed by the Chester architect John Douglas and built about 1879, probably on his own land.[2] The house is built in orange brick and has a Welsh slate roof; it is in two storeys. The main front has two gabled bays and an extension to the right. The left bay has a single-light window in the lower storey and a five-light mullioned window with semicircular arches in the upper storey. Between the storeys is brick diapering with plaster infills. In the gable above the window are square plaster panels surrounded by brick. The right bay projects forwards and has five-light mullioned arched windows on both storeys; it is without decoration. In the angle between the bays is a single-story porch with a four-light straight-headed mullioned window. There are two tall brick chimney stacks.[1]
