7/41 Hill House (West)
House. Principally circa 1800-1820 but rear range may well contain earlier fabric.
Joint-lined stuccoed stone rubble and cob. Slate roof with gable ends to front range
with brick stack at right end, and hipped slate roof to rear range with stacks at
each end, that to left with offsets and brickshaft.
Plan: deceptively large house consisting of 2 parallel ranges. Front range has
single heated room to right of former entrance passage, the right-hand partition of
which has been removed creating direct entry. The upper storey is carried over
carriageway to left. The passage way originally continued through the short narrow
range connecting the front and rear ranges; the latter, of 2 heated rooms (kitchen to
left, parlour to right) is parallel with but continues to the right of the front
range. The flat-roofed stairwell is situated between the front and rear ranges to
the right of the short connecting range; although again extending further to the
right of the front range. At the right end of the rear range is a further narrow
gable-ended 2-storey range containing passage through to rear garden and 2 large coal
and store-sheds.
Exterior: 2 storeys. 3 window range. All C19 hornless 12 paned sashes. Doorway
has shallow canopy supported on decorative console brackets. Canted bay window to
right with dentilled cornice and 12 paned sash with 4 paned sidelights. Double plank
doors to carriage entrance to left.
Interior: early C19 joinery largely intact. Open well stair has moulded string,
handrail and stick balusters with turned newels. Heavy moulded plaster cornice to
stairwell ceiling with central ceiling rose. Decorative moulded plaster cornice to
right-hand room of the rear range. Principally round-arched doorways with unmoulded
timber architraves.
Roof: king-post roof structure to front range with dovetailed raking struts and
pegged A-frame trusses to hipped rear range with lapped collars.
