Small house. Posssibly late medieval origins, early/mid C17 remodelling.
Colourwashed rendered cob on stone rubble footings ; thatched roof, gabled at left
end, half-hipped at right end ; projecting rear lateral stack with tall brick shaft,
axial stack with massive low red sandstone shaft.
Plan: End on to the road. 3 room and through passage plan, the lower end to the
right, hall stack backing on to passage, very narrow unheated inner room. The lower
end partition to the passage no longer exists, and a stair has been introduced at the
rear. The cornice to the rear of the stack, showing in the former passage, suggests
that the house may be of late medieval origins, as this is a feature associated with
evolved open hall houses in the Teign Valley.
Exterior: Attractive asymmetrical 4 window front, the eaves thatch eyebrowed over the
3 first floor windows. C20 lean-to porch and C20 front door to right of centre into
former passage. Good survival of C17 and C18 mullioned windows ; 3-light probably
C17 mullioned timber window to right of porch, one 3-light and one 2-light mullioned
window to left of porch. 4-pane fixed window at extreme left. One 2-light and one
3-light mullioned window to first floor with a C19 or C20 2-light casement betweenn
them. The rear elevation has a C20 porch incorporating a probably C16 doorframe with
a peaked lintel, the eaves thatch eyebrowed over 2 first floor windows one an C18
mullioned window, 1 ground floor window.
Interior: Good carpentry detail of a C17 character. The hall has an open fireplace
with a chamfered timber lintel with bar stops ; a chamfered step-stopped cross beam
and exposed joists. The inner room, which is no wider than a passage, has exposed
chamfered stopped joists. The lower end room, with a rebuilt fireplace, has a
chamfered stopped crossbeam and exposed joists, mortises on the beam at the lower end
of the passage indicate a former partition.
Roof: No hatch to the apex. Principal rafters visible upstairs appear to be straight
but a medieval roof structure may remain.
A fine traditional house with good carpentry details.
