7/160 Brooklyn Cottage
Cottage. Second half of C17, modernised in C19 and again circa 1970. Plastered cob
on stone rubble footings; stone rubble or cob stacks with c19 and C20 brick tops;
thatch roof.
U-plan house. Main block faces south-south-east, say south, onto Fore Street with
short rear blocks projecting at right angles behind each end. The right (eastern)
rear block is probably secondary. Main block has a 2-room plan with central
through passage (now containing C20 stairs). Right room has a gable end stack and
left room has an axial stack backing onto the passage. 2 storeys.
Irregular 3-window front of C20 replacement casements with glazing bars. The front
passage doorway is set left of centre and contains a C20 panelled door and above it
is the pediment of a C19 doorcase. Roof is gable-ended to right and hipped to left.
Both rear blocks are gable-ended and rear includes casements similar to those on the
Interior is largely the result of C19 and C20 modernisations but there are some
features from the original house exposed. The left front room crossbeam and the
left rear room axial beam both have neat soffit chamfers but are unstopped. The
only truss which shows is that over the right room and it is plastered over.
Nevertheless its shape indicates a jointed cruck truss. The fireplaces are blocked.
Brooklyn Cottage is one of a number of attractive listed buildings along Otterton
Fore Street.
