House. Early C16 core with C17 remodelling and reduced in height to 1 storey in
C20. Cob, on stone plinth with C20 concrete tiled roof. 3-room plan with through
passage, and a dairy extension to rear. 2 extant stacks, 1 to the right-hand end;
the other at the back, formerly external but now enclosed by a later corridor. A
third external stack (left-hand end) has been dismantled, and a C20 room added
behind. A wagon roof, rare in a Devon secular building, has been removed. Single
storey range of 4 windows. 1 original window remains, to the inner room on the
right-hand side, of 20 lights, square-headed, with wooden frame, transom and
mullions. The other casements are C20. 4 large C20 brick buttresses on front
wall. Interior: the through passage is flanked to the right by a plank and muntin
screen to hall, chamfered with pyramid stops, and to the left by a post and
plastered cob screen. Both the hall and inner chamber retain their fireplaces:
they are similar in form, the hall fireplace being the larger, with exposed stone
relieving arch and tympanum above the lintel.
Chamfered ceiling beams to both rooms. The kitchen (to the left of the passage)
formerly contained a large fireplace of which only the relieving arch and side-oven
survive. The projecting dairy has a heavily-chamfered beam.
This house was one of only 3 documented cases of a wagon roof in a secular context
(the others being Fishleigh Barton, Tawstock and Woodbeare Court, Plymtree).
