Cottage, and No.5, Bridge Cottages

stone rubble or brick stacks topped with plastered brick; thatch roof, tile to
Row of four 1-room plan cottages facing south behind the roadside stream. The outer
cottages, No.2 to right (east) and No.5 to left (west), have end stacks whilst Nos.
3 and 4 have rear lateral stacks. In fact No.5 now includes 2 rooms with lateral
stacks in a rear block at right angles. These extra rooms were formerly more 1-room
plan cottges. Continuous outshots across rear. Main block is 2 storeys.
Overall regular but not symmetrical 5-window front comprising mostly C19 and C20
casements with glazing bars. A couple of the C20 casements do not have glazing
bars. No.4 has a ground floor C19 tripartite sash containing a central 12-pane
sash. Nos. 3, 4, and 5 each have a doorway on the right side and single window each
floor to left No.2 however has the door on the left side and an extra first floor
window over. Nos 2 and 5 have C19 6-panel doors whilst Nos. 3 and 4 have C20 part-
glazed and panelled doors. It may be that No.5 is an addition since the front is set
back slightly from the rest and the roof ridge level drops down to No.5. The roof
is hipped each end. The rear block faces into the courtyard with similar
arrangement of mostly C20 windows and doors.
Interiors not inspected.
A row of 1-room plan cottages is a rare survival in Devon and this example forms a
group with other attractive listed buildings.
