boundary wall adjoining to east.


Cottage. Probably C18, renovated circa 1980. Granite stone rubble tending to
courses; granite stack; thatch roof, tile to outshot.
Plan: 2-room plan cottage. It faces west although its left (north) end wall is more
prominent from the village centre. Axial stack between the 2 room serves the larger
left room. 2 storeys and C20 service outshots to rear.
Exterior: The present doorway is recessed at the right end of the front and
contains a C19 plank door with side light. There is a C20 casement with glazing
bars to left and another above in a late C19 gabled and tile-roofed half dormer.
The roof is hipped. The left end has a 16-pane sash right of a blocked doorway and
another casement with glazing bars above.
Interior has plain carpentry detail were exposed and a rebuilt granite ashlar
fireplace. Roofspace not inspected but the bases of roughly-finished A-frame truss
principals are exposed on the first floor.
From the left end wall a high granite rubble wall extends eastwards shielding the
C20 rear outshots and garden from the village.
This cottage forms part of a group with other listed buildings that make up the
attractive centre of Throwleigh village.
