12/81 The Thatched Cottage
Estate cottage. Circa 1750 by Thomas Wright of Durham. Rendered; hipped
thatched roof which overhangs and sweeps down to form a pentice which is supported
on arch braced rustic timber piers thus forming an 'umbrello'; ashlar stack.
Gothick cottage orne. Single storey and attics in dormers which are cut out of
the thatch. 4 windows and central door on ground floor, single window to each
elevation in the attic; 3- and 2-light casements with depressed ogee headed
tracery and diamond and square lead glazing patterns. Central door with
depressed ogee headed tracery; two taller timber uprights of the pentice form a
porch with a thatched roof set below the attic window. Single storey thatched
extension at the north end. An early example of cottage orne idea and one of
Wright's most important works for the 4th Duke of Beaufort in the period 1748-1756.
