Cottage, once 2 or 3 cottages. Late C17 with C18 and C19 additions and alterations.
Plastered local stone rubble with some cob; stone rubble stacks topped with
plastered brick chimneyshafts; thatch roof.
Plan: 4-room plan cottage built down the hillslope facing south-west. The larger
central rooms are heated by axial stacks backing onto the end rooms. The oldest
section of the house is the room right (south-east) of centre which may have been a
late C17 1-room plan cottage. The other rooms are C18 and C19 additions. The right
2 rooms are 2 storeys. The left 2 are single storey.
Exterior: irregular front fenestration with 5 ground floor windows and 2 first
floor windows. The left first floor window is probably C18 and contains rectangular
panes of leaded glass; the rest are various C19 and C20 casements with glazing bars.
The front doorway is right of centre and it contains a C20 plank door under a
contemporary thatch hood The roof is hipped to left and half-hipped to right.
Interior: the late C17 section has a large stone rubble fireplace with an oak-
framed front. The crossbeam here has deep chamfers and step stops but has been cut
through at the front for the present main stair. The roof over this section was not
inspected but the scantling of the bases of straight principals which show on the
first floor are large enough to suggest that they belong to original A-frame
trusses. No exposed carpentry elsewhere in the house.
