wall and railings

House and shop, with attached front wall and railings. C18 origin; additions and
alterations of C19 and C20; incorporating C17 materials. Slatestone rubble with
granite and brick dressings. Slate roof with ridge tiles and gable ends. Gable end
stacks with brick shafts. Rear wing in painted stone rubble and cob; slurried
scantle slate roof with ridge tiles and gable ends; gable end stack to rear with
rubble shaft.
Plan: The front range is a double depth plan house, with central entrance through
porch and principal room to front left and right; shallow rear service rooms. The
front and rear room to left are used as a shop, probably inserted in early C19. To
rear left is a 2-room plan wing, the end room heated from a gable end stack. This
range may be the earliest part of the house. In circa mid C19, a garden wall with
railings and gate was attached to the front of the house.

granite quoins. The porch has central C20 door with sidelights, to each side a C17
granite column with moulded cap and base ; C20 glazed sides. The inner door is C19,
2-panelled with overlight. The porch was raised in height circa mid C19, with a flat
roof and 6-pane sash to front ; it was probably originally an open porch. At ground
floor to right two 6-pane sashes with brick segmental arches to right and left.
Right side has 4-pane sash at first floor to left. Left side has C20 window at first
floor to left. To left is a straight joint to the rear wing; this is 2-storey, with
16-pane sash and half-glazed door at ground floor. First floor has two 4-pane sashes
