6/112 Nethercott Manor (formerly listed
as Nethercott Farmhouse)

Farmhouse. Circa mid/late C17, enlarged circa early C19 by the addition of a kitchen
wing and a parlour wing. Whitewashed rendered cob and stone rubble; thatched roof
with a plain ridge, hipped at the right (east) end of the the main range, gabled at
the left (west) end, hipped at the end of the parlour (south-west) wing, gabled at
the end of the kitchen (north-west) wing; rear lateral stack and a right end stack to
the main range, end stack to kitchen wing, lateral stack on east side of parlour
wing, all with brick shafts.
Plan: 3 room and cross passage plan main range, lower end to the right possibly the
original C17 kitchen, the hall heated from a rear lateral stack, the inner room
unheated. The house was enlarged in the early C19 by the addition of a kitchen wing
at the north-west, at right angles to the hall and by a parlour wing and new
entrance at the south-east, at right angles to the lower end. The new entrance on
the east side included a stair hall, a second stair rises to the rear of the hall and
a third stair rises within the early C19 kitchen. A dairy outshut to the rear of the
lower end room has been converted into a kitchen.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4 window south front with the parlour wing
projecting to the front at the right, late C19 half-glazed front door to the cross
passage. Ground floor windows 2- and 3-light C19 or early C20 small pane casements,
first floor windows late C19 or early C20 4- and 8-pane timber sashes. The inner
(west) return of the parlour wing has 1 ground floor C19 2-light casement and a first
floor C19 or early C20 4-pane sash. The south end wall of the wing has a C19 ground
floor French window below a C19 4 over 8-pane sash. The east elevation, the early
C19 entrance front, has a C20 gabled porch with a C19 round-headed stair window with
margin panes to the left of the porch. The other windows are probably early C20 2-
light timber casements with glazing bars. Windows on the other elevations are timber
Interior: Both C17 and early C19 features survive and the plan form is virtually
unaltered since the early C19. The 2 left hand rooms in the main range have C17
hollow-chamfered crossbeams with diamond stops, the right hand room has a rough
crossbeam and an open fireplace with a chamfered lintel and a bread oven. The C19
entrance hall has panelled doors and a good dogleg stair with a landing, stick
balusters and a ramped handrail. The C19 parlour has a dado with a reeded frieze
below the cornice and a circa mid C19 timber chimney-piece, reduced in height. The
early C19 kitchen has a massive open fireplace with a bread oven.
Roof Apex not thoroughly inspected at time of survey but at least one truss in the
main range has a mortised apex and timbers of large scantling. One of the trusses
has a principal rafter carried on a post but this may be a modification made when the
axial passage was created on the first floor. Another truss has a principal rafter
apparently pegged into a projecting timber corbel, and the whole of the south range
roof may be a transitional design between the jointed cruck and the later A frame
An attractive, large traditional house with good interior features of the C17 and
