3/55 Moneyglass Cottage
Cottage, former small farmhouse, once 2 cottages. Early - mid C16 origins; much
rebuilt and rearranged in the late C17 and again in the mid - late C19, circa 1970
extension and modernisation. Plastered cob and local stone rubble, some brick
patching to rear; one cob stack, one stone rubble and brick stack; thatch roof,
replaced with slate on the ridge and rear pitch.
Plan and development: 3-room plan cottage facing south. The left (west) room is a
C20 extension. The centre room has an axial stack backing onto the left room and
the right room has a cob gable-end stack. In the older part the present layout is
essentially that of 2 1-room plan cottages, probably late C17 in date. However
there appears to be evidence of smoke-blackening in the roof which must suggest that
the house began as some form of open hall house farmhouse heated by an open hearth
fire and that it dates from the C16. It is now 2 storeys.
Exterior: regular but not symmetrical 5-window front of C20 casements with glazing
bars, some timber but most of them uPVC. Both front doorways contain C20 doors
behind contemporary gabled porches. The roof is gable-ended.
Interior: the left room is entirely C20. Both the other rooms have crossbeams.
The centre room one is roughly-finished, the other is clad with plaster. The right
room has a late C17 brick fireplace with chamfered oak lintel. It includes an oven
which is housed below the old winder stair rising alongside. The centre room
fireplace is C19 brick but it is thought to be a rebuild and the chamfered oak
lintel is reused from the earlier fireplace. The roof over the centre room has no
trusses. It is a series of common rafter couples. They and the underside of the
front thatch are lightly smoke-blackened from the original open hearth fire. The
right end of the roof is carried on a C19 A-frame truss.
