- Pear Tree Cottage


House. Probably C16 origins, substantial C20 alterations. Whitewashed and rendered
(probably cob); slate roof, gabled at ends; front lateral projecting stack with brick
The original plan has largely disappeared: the central room was probably the
hall/kitchen. the narrow room adjoining at the right end may originally have been
the old cross or through passage. A third room adjoins at the left end giving a
single depth 3 room plan to the main range and a later single-storey lean-to-addition
at the rear. C20 alterations have included the replacement of the roof.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front with approximately central lateral stack with
set-offs and a rectangular oven. Front door to left of stack with a porch canopy
carried on brackets. 2 large buttresses to right of stack. Fenestration of various
C20 2-light casements with glazing bars.
Interior: Largely modernized but the central ground floor room preserves an axial
beam with step stops and the fireplace, although the grate is C20, retains an old
timber lintel which returns to left and right with step stops.
In spite of the C20 modernization the house retains an attractive asymmetrical
exterior and some internal features of the C16.
