4/132 Gorran's Down
House. Probably later C17 but little evidence for dating survives. Extended in
C19. Rendered probably rubble walls with some cob. Thatch roof gabled to right end
and hipped to left. 2 brick stacks, one axial and one at right gable end.
Plan: original plan unclear owing to the C20 alterations, currently 2 large rooms
but may in fact have originated as 2 2-room plan cottages since a central thick wall
divides the house adjoining the axial chimneystack. C19 outshuts added along rear
wall and at left-hand end.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front of late C19 4-pane sashes on the
1st floor and later C20 2-light casements below. C20 gabled porch to right of
centre with glazed door. Lean-to outbuilding/store against left-hand end.
Interior: exhibits few early features at present although there is evidence that a
C17 fireplace may survive at the right-hand end. Roof structure consists of C18 or
C19 straight principal rafters.
