Penlyn (q.v.). Circa mid C17, with alterations of C19 and C20. Stone rubble and
cob, roughcast. Thatched roof with gable ends. Rear lateral stack to right and
axial stack with brick shaft to left.
Plan: The Hatch is the hall and inner room of a 3-room and cross passage house. The
hall is heated from a rear lateral stack, and the inner room, to left, is heated end;
formerly single storey and raised in height in C20. An entrance was made directly
into the room to left, when the house was divided. In mid C20, additions were made
to the rear, with a stair.
Exterior: 2 storeys, asymmetrical 2-window front. To right, a C20 thatched and
gabled porch with half-glazed stable door. Ground and first floor to right have a
C20 2-light casement. Ground floor left a 2-light 6-pane C19 casement, first floor
left a 2-light 6-pane casement. To left, the former roofline of the outshut is
visible with 6-pane light at ground floor. The outshut has been raised to 2 storeys,
with open area at the left side; C20 casements running around the corner of the house
at first floor. 2-storey addition to left with casements at ground and first floor.
At the rear, the C20 additions are 2-storey with four large gabled dormers with
casements. Ground floor left single storey C20 addition.
Interior: The ground floor room to right has a rear lateral fireplace, rebuilt in
C20; C19 beams. Blocked doorway to right, formerly leading to the passage. The
partition wall to left may have been moved, making the inner room to left larger.
The entrance leads directly into the room to left, which has end fireplace rebuilt in
C20 with cloam oven inserted to right. Narrow 2-panelled door with strap hinges to
left, leading into the outshut. At first floor there are plank doors.
The house was probably divided circa early C19, and the cloam oven would have been
inserted in the fireplace at the left end at that time.
