9/63 No. 36 (Colvanbridge)
31.10.66 (formerly listed as
No. 36 (Gwalia)


House, now offices. Circa 1600, incorporating fragment of C14 house, altered
1984. Timber framed, plastered, roofed with handmade red plain tiles. Main
range facing NW with 2 adjacent rear wings. Stack at junction of main range and
left wing, another stack at right end of main range. Single-storey extension to
rear of right wing. 2 storeys with attics. 2-window range of early C19 sashes
of 16 Lights, and one late C19 similar sash on ground floor. One C19 casement
in gabled dormer. C20 6-panel door in early C19 reeded architrave with paterae;
one stone stp, almost flush with pavement. Chamfered axial beams with lamb's
tongue stops, partly boxed. In right front bay, introduced non-structural
moulded joists. In left front bay, early C19 fireplace, and plain joists of
horizontal section, partly plastered. In left rear wing, wide wood-burning
hearth. Exposed in the right wall is the framing of the end of a C14 hall, with
wide curved display braces trenched into the studs, all heavily smoke-blackened.
This abuts on a wide vehicle way with rooms over, which is part of no. 32 (item
9/62, q.v.). Major alterations in 1984 have destroyed much of the internal
structure, and have introduced false features.
