1/44 Linden Lee
Detached cottage. Between 1800 and 1837 (dates of O.S.map and tithe map).
Roughcast cob on stone footings; thatched roof, half-hipped to left, gabled-end to
right. 2-room cottage, the central entrance giving in to the right-hand room which
is heated by an external end stack, with off-set and brick shaft. 2 storeys.
Front: symmetrical 2-window range; 2-light casement windows throughout, C19, with
6 panes per light. Wide central doorway. C20 single-storeyed extension to right
with pantiled roof, contains bathroom and storage. C20 window to left-hand gable
Interior: roof, with 3 trusses; the principals are straight, and although the
apex carpentry is not visible, it is understood to be crossed and bolted. Linden
Lee is an interesting example of a type of house plan and structure that remained
almost unchanged from the C17 to C19 : 'It demonstrates that traditional methods
and designs were still in use (in the C19) for the smallest houses', N W Alcock,
'Houses in an East Devon Parish', Trans. Devon Assoc., 94 (1962), p.215.
