House. C16 with later additions. Roughcast stone, probably with some cob.
Thatched roof, half-hipped. Granite ashlar double stack, with tapered top having a
projecting stone course below it, on ridge off-centre to left. 3-room plan,
probably with original hall in centre and heated parlour to left; added lean-to in
front of lower right-hand end.. The house has a double stack at the upper end of
the hall, a rare arrangement in Devon. 3 windows wide. Windows all have small-
paned wood casements. Original front door to right, next to added lean-to, has 5
panelled early C18 oak door with raised-and-fielded ovolo-moulded panels; bead-
moulded door-frame with old iron tethering ring. C20 wood porch. In west gable a
doorway with old plank door and C20 wooden porch.
Interior: former hall has large open fireplace with large granite corbel on left
side; it supports a chamfered wood lintel with run-out stops, probably a C17
replacement. On right side a very large oven with granite sides and dcmed brick
roof. Opening has granite frame with curved top, and in front of it is a shallow
granite shelf; opening has an old, detachable wrought iron door with 2 handles and
with one foot surviving. To right of fireplace a staircase fitted into a curve in
the wall; at its foot the chamfered wood jambs of an early door frame. Upper floor
beam is chamfered with big convex stops. Lower room, to right, has chamfered beam
with step-stops. It runs over a stud-and-panel screen with studs, chamfered at the
front and plain at the rear; in it is a doorway with cranked head. Former parlour
has chamfered beam; C20 fireplace. Roof-timbers plastered in, but at the division
between hall and lower room one end of a tie beam truss is exposed.
In late C19 upper room at left-hand end is known to have been used as a Gospel Hall
by the Plymouth Brethren, with external access from higher ground at the rear.
