House. Early/mid C17 or earlier, C20 renovations. Local limestone rubble,
pebbledashed on the front elevation; corrugated iron roof (formerly thatched) end
stacks, the right end stack with dripledges.
The present plan is a single depth main range, 2 rooms wide with a through passage in
the centre. Rear left single-storey lean-to addition, rear right 2-storey addition
containing stair. 2 blocked doorways at the right end of the house suggest that the
present building is the lower end, passage and hall of what was originally a 3 room
and through passage house, the inner room being no. 61, adjoining at the right end.
It is not clear whether the lower end was originally heated, the left end stack may
be an insertion, the hall is heated from a stack at the higher end. A C20 thatch
fire destroyed some of the roof timbers, the front elevation has been refenestrated.
2 storeys. Symmetrical 3 windows front with a central C20 front door and C20 2- and
3-light casements with glazing bars, the ground floor windows plastic.
Interior 2 oak plank and muntin screens to the through passage with chamfered
muntins. Passage paved with local 'marble'. The right hand fireplace (putative
hall) has a chamfered half beam with step stops and an open fireplace with stone
rubble jambs and a replaced timber lintel. 1 exposed jointed cruck truss (side-
pegged), a second truss is encased in a later partition. Apex of truss inaccessible
at time of survey (1986) but the timbers above the first floor ceiling said to have
been damaged by fire.
The early features are an important survival in Chudleigh which was largely destroyed
by fire in 1807.
