Listing Text

SO 87 NW
6/10000 Rose Cottage
House, original use not known. Circa early C17, remodelled circa
C18. Whitewashed English garden wall of irregular bond bricks.
Steeply pitched plain tile roof with brick coped gable ends.
Porch axial and small gable end internal stack.
PLAN: 2-room plan, both rooms heated from back-to-back
fireplaces in central axial stack. The original building was
probably not a house, but a 2-storey building possibly without
structural divisions. In circa C18 it appears to have been
converted into a pair of cottages, the central stack inserted and
small service rooms partitioned off in the rear right and left
hand corners; only the left service room remains. In C20 it was
converted into one house and an outshed built at the right hand
(east) end.
EXTERIOR: 2 storey. Asymmetrical 3-window south front. 2 and
4-light C20 casements with leaded panes. Doorways to left and
right with C20 glazed doors, that on right south C20 open porch,
and on left a C20 glazed conservatory. Various C20 casements at
rear and to raking brick buttresses at centre. C20 single storey
lean-to outshut on right (east) end.
INTERIOR: Right hand room has large chamfered cross-beams with
cyma stops at south end, exposed unchamfered joists and large
fireplace with chamfered timber lintel without stop. Left hand
room also has chamfered cross-beam with cyma stops at north end,
exposed unchamfered joists and large fireplace with chamfered
timber lintel with cyma stops at one end. The fireplace lintels
are probably reused floor beams. C18 joinery includes plan doors
and staircase balustrade with moulded rails. Original 3-bay roof
structure of heavy scantling; 2 cambered tie-beam trusses with
queen struts and collars mortice and tenoned to the principals
and with 2 tiers of purloin halves on backs of principals.
