Listing Text

SX 7087 CHAGFORD NEW STREET, Chagford

6/151 Nos 7 and 9
-
20.2.52
GV II

2 cottages, formerly one house. Mid C17. Plastered granite stone rubble with some
massive boulders in the footings on the front; granite stacks topped with C20 brick;
slate roof (formerly thatch).
Plan: the two cottages occupy a former 3-room-and-through-passage plan house built
along the street facing south-west. Now the cottages share the through passage. No
7 occupies the former service end room which has a rear lateral stack and C20 service
outshot to rear. No 9 occupies the former hall and inner room. The hall has an
axial stack at the upper end backing onto the inner room and the original newel stair
turret projects from the rear wall. Although the plan suggests that the house
originated as a C16 open hall house the fabric, as far as can be seeen, is wholly mid
C17 and it was apparently floored throughout from the beginning. 2 storeys.
Exterior: irregular overall 5-window front of C19 and C20 casements with glazing
bars. The front passage doorway is set right of centre and contains a C20 plank door
in a frame narrower than the original. The rear passage doorframe is probably
original although it is now clad. The roof runs parallel with the street between the
adjoining properties.
Good Interior is well preserved. However No 7 (the service end room) was not
available for inspection at the time of survey. Both sides of the through passage
are lined by oak plank-and-muntin screens, their muntin edges given shallow ogee
mouldings. The lower side contains a C20 doorway to No 7 but the original remains
near the front as is blocked by its original door. The upper passage doorway (to No
9) is original with chamfered surround and scroll-double nick stops. In the hall the
oak lintel of the granite fireplace and the crossbeam are both soffit-chamfered with
bar-scroll stops. The doorway to the inner room is like that from the passage. Many
of the doors in the house are ancient plank doors with strap hinges and may be C17.
Overall 6-bay roof of C17 A-frame trusses with pegged lap-jointed collars.
