    The hamlet consisted of

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural.

    The hamlet consisted of one dusty street, a white painted church with a wooden belfry, and a dozen of houses of red brick.

    See above. I'd end with "red brick houses".

    We say "dozens of [plural noun]" but just "a dozen [plural noun]".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
