8/114 Daveys Cottage including barn
- adjoining to west
House, former farmhouse. C17, possibly earlier, rearranged, extended and
refurbished probably in mid C19. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings; stone
rubble and brick stacks all topped with C19 brick; thatch roof, slate to outshot and
corrugated asbestos to the barn.
L-shaped house facing south. The main block has a 2-room plan each with end stacks.
But right room is larger. Winder staircase alongside right (eastern) stack. In the
mid C19 1-room plan extension built at right angles in front of the right end. It
has a large inside lateral stack. The main block extends further left (west) as a
barn which now includes a utility room adjoining the house. It was reduced in
height in C20. Probably C20 service outshot on the front end of the extension.
House is 2 storeys.
House has irregular 2-window front of C19 and C20 casements most with glazing bars.
However the oldest first floor window contains rectangular panes of leaded glass,
another similar on the inside wall of the extension. End of the extension has C20
first floor casement. Roof over is half-hipped. Main roof hipped to right and
gable-ended to left. Barn also gable-ended and contains C20 window to the service
room and contemporary plank door.
Interior: much reorganized in C19 but main block is still basically a C17 building.
Both ceiling beams, an axial one in the left room and a crossbeam in the right room,
are boxed in but their size betrays their C17 date. The crosswall exposed in the
roofspace is a C17 oak frame with rod-and-cob infil. The open truss over the large
room is an A-frame of large scantling with a pegged lap-jointed collar. The stack
serving the smaller may be an addition but the other is original. Although the
fireplace has been reduced in width its ovolo-moulded lintel shows.
Despite later alterations the C17 house appears to survive substantially intact.
