ST 10 NE
6/37 Antelope Cottage
- II
House, originally 2 cottages, and later used as an inn. Mid-late C17, refurbished
as an inn in the late C18 - early C19, modernised circa 1970. Plastered local stone
rubble, maybe with some cob; stone rubble stacks topped with C20 brick; thatch roof
to main house, slate and cedarwood shingles to extensions.
Plan: the house faces south and is built down the hillslope. Originally it was a
pair of mirror plan cottages, each with a small unheated inner room and outer larger
heated room with a gable-end stack. Now the 2 rooms at the right (east) end have
been united. A secondary outbuilding on the left end has now been brought into
domestic use and there is a circa 1970 sun room extension in front of the left end
of the main house. House is otherwise 2 storeys.
Exterior: originally the overall 4-window front would have been symmetrical with
inner 2-light windows and outer 3-light windows, all now C20 casements with glazing
bars. Now the ground floor left end window is a C20 bay window and the ground floor
right end has the gabled sun room in front. Each former cottage had a central
doorway but now the left one is converted to a window. The right doorway contains
a C20 door behind a contemporary gabled porch. The main roof is gable-ended.
Interior: in the right end there is a chamfered and step-stopped crossbeam (the
only beam exposed in the house). The fireplace here has one limestone ashlar jamb,
the other is an oak post and the cambered oak lintel is chamfered. The left end
fireplace is plastered with a plain oak lintel. The roof was not inspected although
the bases of straight principals show on the first floor from either original or
late C18 - early C19 A-frame trusses.
