DUNKESWELL DUNKESWELL
ST 10 NW
5/30 Hunters Cottage
-
GV II
Cottage. Mid - late C17, thoroughly modernised circa 1970. Plastered stone rubble,
maybe with some cob; stone rubble stacks topped with plastered C20 brick; thatch
roof.
Plan: 3-room plan cottage built alongside the lane facing east-north-east, say
east. The right (south) end has a rear lateral stack and the centre room has an
axial stack backing onto the unheated left end room which has now been converted to
a garage. 2 storeys with a secondary outshot on the left (north) end.
Exterior: irregular 4-window front of C20 casements with glazing bars. The front
doorway is left of centre (into the centre room) and it contains a C20 plank door
behind contemporary gabled porch. C20 garage doors into the former left end room.
The roof is gable-ended.
Interior: is largely the result of the circa 1970 modernisation although the
original structure appears to be essentially intact. Both fireplaces are blocked.
The right room has a roughly-finished crossbeam and the centre room has a chamfered
and scroll-stopped crossbeam. The roofspace was not inspected although the bases of
straight principals show on the first floor, their scantling large enough to suggest
that they are from original A-frame trusses.
Hunters Cottage forms part of a group of traditional thatch-roofed buildings in the
vicinity of the Church of St Nicholas (q.v).
