GV II


Cottage. Early C19. Grey limestone rubble, slate roof, gabled at ends with coped
gables and kneelers; stone lateral stack with yellow brick shaft to left wall of main
block. The scale and Gothic style suggest a lodge but there is no evidence that it
ever served this purpose. It was lived in by a policeman in 1871 and may have been a
purpose built police cottage. Tudor style.
Plan: A small cottage with one principal heated room with a porch on the north side
and a single-storey service room under a lean-to roof on the south side. A stair
rises in the front right corner of the main room. C20 addition to rear left.
Exeterior: Very well-preserved. The I window front elevation has a Gothic gabled
porch with a deeply-chamfered 4-centred doorway with a shield carved over the arch.
The doorway is now blocked and the porch is entered on the left return, the right
return has a stone-framed slit window and the main block has a similar slit window to
the left of the porch. Arched inner doorframe with a 4-centred arched C19 plank and
cover strip front door. The left return (facing the road) has a small canted bay
window to the ground floor with glazing bars and a 2-light first floor C19 casement,
a similar window at the left lights the lean-to. The right return also has a C19
canted bay window, so the principal room is lit from both sides.
Interior: Original joinery survives: fireplace blocked.
The deeds are said to go back to 1870 when the house was purchased by the Powderham
Estate.
An unusual and attractive small roadside house.
