6/181 Unoccupied house immediately to
north-east of Hollocombe Barton
Unoccupied house now used as farm building and store. Late C16 or early C17,
abandoned as a house in early to mid C20. Partly rubble and partly cob walls.
Gable-ended corrugated iron roof. Front lateral stack, of coursed rubble with
Plan: originally likely to have been 3-room-and-through-passage plan but what seems
to have been the lower room to the right was virtually demolished when the house was
abandoned and a new one built a short distance away. The passage remains but its
rear door is blocked. The hall is heated by a front lateral stack, with an
adjoining newel staircase between it and the passage. Unusually there are signs
that the stairs continued up to a 2nd floor.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical front with doorway to right at front of leanto
(passage reduced in height) and recessed to form porch in front with seat to either
side. Early C20 plank door. To its left is original 2-light very deep chamfered
wooden mullion window with stone hoodmould above. C20 inserted wide doorway at left
end of front wall.
Interior: hall has chamfered and step-stopped axial beam. Rough cambered wooden
lintel to fireplace. Solid oak newel stairs adjoining which rise partly up to a 2nd
flight. C17 chamfered wooden doorframe at head of 1st flight of stairs. Similar
doorframe between hall and inner room. The inner room has chamfered ogee stopped
cross beams.
This is an interesting survival of what must have been quite an important house
still with a number of good features preserved.
