4/128 Cottage at Carne Manor
Small cottage, original purpose uncertain although it is possible that it may
originally have been a tower. Circa early C17. Granite rubble with granite
dressings. Rag slate roof with hipped ends. Rear lateral stone rubble stack with
moulded granite cap.
Plan: One-room plan on ground and first floor, heated by a rear-lateral stack. The
house is built down the slope with the ground falling to rear; the entrance is
therefore at a higher level than the ground floor room. The entrance is on front
left through a round turret which acts as a 2 storey porch containing steps leading
down into the ground floor room and a flight of winder steps leading up to the first
floor room. It is possible that this round turret is a truncated stair turret
possibly to a truncated tower; this one-room plan building being originally a tower.
Exterior: Two storeys. Asymmetrical front elevation with porch/stair turret on
left. The entrance has a dressed granite rounded arch which is moulded to form an
open segmental pediment with dressed granite chamfered jambs. There is a small 1-
light window with chamfered segmental granite arch which lights the stair within and
a 2-light mullion window on first floor. The house has a 3-light granite mullion
window on ground floor and 2-light granite mullion window on first forming a half
dormer with shallow raking roof. There are similar windows in the right hand side
elevation. C20 garages of stone rubble to rear and on left-hand side.
Interior: Granite ashlar winder stair within porch leading up to first floor room
and short flight of steps down into ground floor room. The latter is heated by a
large fireplace with chamfered granite lintel and jambs. The floor joists have been
replaced in the circa C19. First floor with blocked fireplace and bolted A-frame
roof structure with lapped collars.
