Listing Text

SX 99 NW
3/25 Nos. 4, 5 and 6
Row of 3 cottages, Nos. 5 and 6 now forming a single dwelling. Late-C16 core with
later additions and alterations. Cob, rendered, on stone plinth, no.4 with
corrugated-iron roof and gabled end with lateral back-stack, No.5 with pantiled
roof (both roofing materials replace former thatch), and No.6 with thatched roof,
and a C20 extension with end-stack. The roof-ridge of Nos. 4 and 5 are level with
each other; No.6 is higher, the change in level marked by a large axial stack. The
cottages were originally a house of 3-room and cross passage plan. Front: No.4
(left-hand cottage) with door to left and a single, 2-light window on ground level
to its right; No.5 with a wide doorway, chamfered jambs with odd grooved step
stops, re-edged at a later date, and segmental headed timber arch below a (possibly
later) chamfered lintel. A 3-light window to the right of this doorway, and at 1st
floor two 2-light windows at different levels, one pushing up some eaves. No.6 has
2 C20 ground floor windows, and 1 above with eyebrow eaves. Rear elevations of
Nos. 4 and 5 show roofs sloping down to ground floor ceiling level, that of No.6
much altered. The front door to No.5 forms the original entrance to cross-passage.
The axial stack serves both right-hand rooms, the former hall and inner chamber.
As the south facing (No.5) fireplace contains a blocked side oven this might
represent a late stack insertion and change of formation from hall to kitchen (or
single house to cottages); otherwise the stack is in an extremely unusual position
for Devon, at the higher end of hall. Both fireplaces with Thorverton stone jambs
and wooden lintels, chamfered with scroll stops. Thickness of stack dividing-wall
blocked. Single chamfered beams to both rooms, some with step-stops. The beam
marking the right-hand side of the passage is now supported at rear end by a curved
posts, possibly a re-used hip cruck. Roof with principals, collars and rafters.
Nos. 4, 5 and 6 form a group with the post office, Nos. 1-3 Chapel Road, Hillcott
and The Lodge.
