SS 50 NW
3/190 Lower Court
House, originally farmhouse. C17, extended and remodelled in early - mid C19.
Rendered rubble walls to left-hand part, cob and rubble to right-hand part. Slate
roof, gabled to left end hipped to right. Brick axial stack and large projecting
rendered rubble front lateral stack with dripcourse at top and brick shaft.
Plan: the house is apparently of 2 builds - the right-hand part C17, the left-hand
part early - mid C19 with a solid wall between the 2 and noticeably different wall
thicknesses. It is possible, however, that the left-hand part is a rebuild of an
earlier fabric. The C17 end consists of 2 rooms, the larger left-hand one heated by a
front lateral stack. The C19 part is a symmetrical 2-room range with central
stairhall. Originally both rooms were heated and evidently functioned as the
principal rooms whilst the older part was relegated to kitchen and service purposes.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmtrical 5-window front in 2 distinct parts. The left-hand
section has a symmetrical 3-window front of C19 horned 16-pane sashes with a central
early - mid C19 6-panel door. To the right of this facade is the projecting lateral
stack of the C17 range which has a C19 2-light casement and C20 1-light casement on
the first floor and a C20 2-light casement below. Adjoining the stack is a leanto C20
porch with glazed door. Attached to the right-hand end of the house is a 1-storey C19
range which curves around to the front of the house and has 2 doors and 2 windows.
Interior: of old part of house has large open fireplace with chamfered wooden lintel
and oven in right-hand side. The C19 section has 6-panel doors and open string
staircase with stick balusters and column newel post.
