SY 18 NE BRANSCOMBE WESTON

7/58 Jasmine Cottage and Rosemary
- Cottage (Higher Weston Cottages on
O.S.)
II

Pair of cottages, maybe 1 house originally. Late C18-early C19, modernised circa
1960. Plastered stone rubble, maybe with some cob; stone rubble stacks topped with
C19 and C20 brick; thatch roof, slate to outshots.
Plan: pair of adjoining 2-room plan cottages facing south. Jasmine Cottage is the
left (west) one. It has a central entrance lobby onto the main stair between the
rooms. The left end room has a gable-end stack and the right room has an axial
stack backing onto and shared with the left room of Rosemary Cottage since it serves
back-to-back fireplaces. The small right (east) end room of Rosemary Cottage has a
disused projecting gable-end stack. The stair in Rosemary Cottage rises along the
rear wall from the left room. Thus Jasmine Cottage is slightly larger than Rosemary
Cottage. It may be that the cottages have been made by subdividing a farmhouse
although there is no physical evidence of this. Jasmine Cottage can be interpreted
as the principal rooms and Rosemary Cottage as the service rooms of this former
farmhouse. Both cottages are 2 storeys with continuous rear outshots.
Exterior: overall 5-window front, all circa 1960 replacement 16-pane sashes, except
for a contemporary fixed pane window over the doorway of Jasmine Cottage. Jasmine
Cottage has the left 3-window section, and Rosemary Cottage has the right 2-window
section, both arranged symmetrically above the front doorway. Both have C20 front
doors and contemporary gabled porches. Between the 2 cottages there is a Beerstone
plaque in the wall. It is however illegible although the initial I and B can be
made out. Roof is gable-ended to left and half-hipped to right.
Interior: no carpentry detail is exposed on the ground floor rooms of both
cottages. All the fireplaces are blocked by C20 grates. Joinery detail mostly C20.
Roof not inspected.
