4/46 Quay Cottage


House. Circa early-mid C18. Painted slatestone rubble to ground floor, wooden
lintels and cob over. Dry Delabole slate roof (originally thatched) and scantle
slate roof over rear outshut and lean-to right (south). Brick chimneys over gable
ends. Gable end to north is party wall with early/mid C19 house.
2 principal rooms to front, through passage plan, with 2 narrow service rooms to rear
within integral outshut.
2 storeys. Symmetrical 3 window west front with central doorway. C20 door. Except
for C20 dormer inserted to roof space of lean-to right, all front windows are
original 2 or 3-light 8-paned casements with original wide glazing bars and mostly
original crown glass. Window over door is narrower with 2 lights. Further original
12-pane 2-light to rear outshut. Mullions and glazing bars have internal ovolo
mouldings. First floor windows lean outwards like the stern cabin windows of C18
ships. Adjoining projecting part of gable end of house to north is of circa C16/C17
small yellowish bricks which were probably imported.
Interior is virtually unaltered with original dog-leg stair, within right-hand
(southern) half of outshut, many 2-panel doors with ovolo-moulded panels, original
floors and roof structure. Pine floor beams (originally plastered under) have some
carpenters marks from former use. Hearths partly blocked. Pine roof structure has
lapped and pegged collars and apices and battens for thatch. Later structure over
for slates.
Early and virtually intact example of small symmetrical double depth house with
interesting nautical influence to first floor windows. Overlooking C18 quay and
unspoilt part of Pill Creek.
