5/73 Lake House

- II

House. C16 or early-C17, substantially remodelled and enlarged in early C19. Main
range of cob, stone plinth, rendered, under gabled-end slate roof with sprocketted
eaves and box gutter on shaped brackets. This was the original 3-room, through-
passage plan house to which a rear wing, stone, rendered, with hipped slate roof was
added in circa 1840. 2 end stacks and an axial stack, all rendered with moulded
caps. 2 storeys.
Front: 4 window range. 3 of the upper windows and 2 at ground level have C19
tripartite hornless sash windows (side panels with 2 sashes of 2 panes, central
light, 2 sashes of 6 panes). Sash window above door with two 6 pane sashes. Door,
set right of centre under semi-circular arch, panelled reveals. Window to left of
door being altered at time of inspection in 1984. Rusticated quoining. Evidence of
the earlier house survives in the right-hand room: large end fireplace with
unchamfered timber lintel, stone jambs and blocked back oven. To the left of this a
newel staircase with heavy (possibly contemporary) wooden treads and risers.
Dividing this room from present hall (which probably lies to the right of original
passage) is a seven-bay plank and muntin screen, chamfered and stopped to within 2
feet of ground level, at which point a horizontal line marks a former bench fixture.
Good early C19 panelled doors and fittings and 2 later C19 polished limestone fire
surrounds in the rear wing.
Roof: early C19 collar trusses with sawn timbers. Tall brick entrance pier with
moulded stone cap remains at left.
