Listing Text

SX 99 NW
3/50 Lower Nettacott
- II
A substantial house of the C16 and early C17. Cob on a stone plinth with slate
(formerly thatched) gable-ended roof. It is of the 3-room and through passage
plan type, with a room added quite early in the building's history to the left-hand
side. 2 storeys throughout. The front elevation is dominated by an external
lateral stack (with a tiny firewindow) which stands to the right of the through
passage entrance which has a large, wooden, semi-circular headed, single-chamfered
arch and jambs. To the right of the stack is an original 10-light window, wooden,
with a transom and mullions with ovolo mouldings. All other casements (7 windows
at ground floor level, 7 above) are C20. The rear elevation has been much altered;
all windows are C20 and an old photograph shows a (now replaced) 2-light mullioned
window to have been the only window here originally. Back door to through passage
blocked, but with its single-chamfered arch remaining in situ. The left-hand gable
end has 3 small original window openings, the right-hand has none. The internal
arrangements show the hall and inner chamber to have been to the right of the
passage, service-room to the left, and the later room to the left of this. This
building sequence is reflected in the roof-bay divisions. There are 5 roof bays in
all, 4 with oak jointed crucks and the left (newer) bay being wider than the others
with a chestnut jointed cruck. The through passage has been blocked by a C20
staircase at rear. The hall was originally open to the roof for there is evidence
of the service-end rooms being jettied about 3 feet into the hall space. Hall
fireplace, large, with stone jambs and an oak lintel which also forms a substantial
mantelpiece, all of one timber. Mouldings are ovolo and cavetto. The screen
marking the division between hall and inner chamber has been removed to the right-
hand end of the house. It is of panel and stud construction, but 2 door lintels
and single-chamfered posts with mortices and screen grooves survive in situ. Beams
are single chamfered. A stud and panel screen survives between passage and service
room, and a stud and cob screen between this room and the newer extension which
contains a single chamfered elm main beam.
