7/168 Riverside Cottage and No. 2


House divided into 2 cottages. Circa early C17 with circa C18 additions. Rendered,
probably cob and stone; thatched roof with a plain ridge, half-hipped at the left of
the main range, gabled at right end, half-hipped at right end of right end block,
hipped at left end of left hand block; end stack to main range with brick shafts.
Picturesquely - sited on the outskirts of Gittisham.
Plan: Single depth main range, 2 rooms wide, with a rear outshut and lower-roofed
blocks at each end, slightly set back from the main range. The main range is
probably early C17 in origin, the rear outshut and end blocks possibly C18. The
house has been divided down the centre, leaving the approximately central front door
to serve the left hand cottage (No 2); the right hand cottage is entered through a
lean-to porch in the angle between the main range and right hand block.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Plank front doors to left of centre and to the lean-to porch.
C19 or early C20 2-and 3-light casements with glazing bars. On the left return of
the main range a blocked 2-light timber mullioned window.
Interior: The right-hand room of the main range has a deeply-chamfered step-stopped
crossbeam and a partly-blocked fireplace concealing an earlier lintel. The left hand
room has a plastered-over chamfered crossbeam. The right end block has a chamfered
axial beam and a circa C18 stair rising in the outshut; C18 joinery includes a number
of 2-panel doors.
Roof: One jointed cruck roof truss survives in No. 2, the foot descending to the
ground at the rear and probably removed at the front. The trusses in Riverside
Cottage appear to be 'A' frames, apex not inspected.
An extremely attractive building, sited above Curlditch and Crabbs Cottage and
forming a good group with them.
