Listing Text

ST 20 SW
11/4 Sundale Cottage
- II
Cottage. Early - mid C17, maybe earlier origins. Plastered local stone rubble,
maybe with some cob; stone rubble stacks, the original one with a stone rubble
chimneyshaft; thatch roof.
Plan: 2-room plan cottage facing south. The smaller right (east) room is heated by
an end stack but this is a C20 insertion; it was formerly unheated. The larger left
room has an axial stack backing onto the smaller room. Central front lobby entrance
onto the side of the main stack. Since an internal inspection was not available at
the time of this survey it is not possible to determine whether there is any
structural evidence here of an earlier house. It is 2 storeys with a C20 service
extension to rear of the left (west) room.
Exterior: nearly symmetrical 3-window front of C20 casements with glazing bars; the
first floor windows are half dormers. Roughly central front doorway contains a C20
part-glazed door with a contemporary thatch-roofed porch on plain posts. The main
roof is tall and steeply pitched and is half-hipped each end.
Interior: was not available for inspection at the time of this survey although some
C17 carpentry was seen. The left room has a chamfered and step-stopped crossbeam
and large stone rubble fireplace with oak-framed front. The right room has 2 axial
beams with deep chamfers. The roof structure might provide evidence of earlier
origins to the house.
