OTTERTON THE GREEN, Otterton
7/173 Nos. 9 and 11 (formerly listed
11.ll.52 as Nos. 4 and 5)
2 cottages, originally one. Late C18-early C19. Plastered cob on stone rubble
footings; stone rubble or brick stacks topped with C19 and C20 brick; thatch roof,
replaced with slate to rear.
The original house had a 2-room plan facing north onto the Green. It has a central
cross passage containing the stairs and end stacks shared by the adjoining cottages
Nos. 7 and 15. 2-storey kitchen outshot to rear of left room with stack backing
onto the main block. Probably in the mid or late C19 the house was divided into 2.
No. 11 occupies the right room with a 2-storey outshot added to rear. The rest is
occupied by No. 9. 2 storeys.
Symmetrical 3-window front of late C19 - early C20 casements with glazing bars.
Central doorway (to No. 9) contains original 6-panel door with a pediment over the
door, possibly the remains of a doorcase. At the right end is an inserted doorway
to No. 11 containing a C19 6-panel door.
Interior shows no carpentry detail and most of the joinery detail is C19. The
fireplace in the right room (No. 11) is exposed; stone rubble with soffit-chamfered
oak lintel. The kitchen fireplace (in No. 9) contains a C19 range bearing the
founder's legend, Gosling of Otterton. Roof not inspected.
Nos. 9 and 11 are in an attractive row of contemporary cottages near the Church of
St Michael (q.v.). The cottages are an unusual mixture of vernacular cob and
thatch with more polite detail to the doorways and some of the windows.
