“Sprocketed eaves” is a good description Ctesiphon but does that not apply to the fascia? The question was “What’s the word for a roof that changes angle of slope at the eves like that?”

To be precise (:) ), it’s a hipped roof with sprocketed eaves- I don’t know that there’s a term for the roof itself.

Aside from the poxy extension, I do like it too, even the pebble dash and render trim- too often original finishes can be altered/painted over for a variety of reasons and it’s nice to see a house that seems to be valued for its own sake, and that is a well-maintinaed example of a particular type of building.
