House, formerly farmhoue. Mid C17. Plastered cob and rubble walls. Gable-ended
corrugated asbestos roof. Brick axial stack and projecting rubble front lateral
Plan: 3-room-and-through-passage plan with lower end to the right rebuilt possibly
in early C18 with integral outbuilding beyond and store above lower room with
external access. Hall is heated by front lateral stack. Unusually it is the
unheated inner room which has a projecting window bay rather than the hall. The
inner room has been subdivided lengthways into 2 narrow rooms.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front mainly of early C20 2 and 3-light
casements but with 3-light C19 casement on ground floor left, which, with the window
above it, is in a slight projection with ovolo-moulded wall-plate C20 plank door to
passage to right. The roof-line of the house drops beyond it over the lower end
with stone steps at the front leading to 1st floor doorway and outbuilding beyond.
Interior: hall has chamfered axial ceiling beams and fireplace with cambered and
chamfered wooden lintel. Lower room has narrow chamfered wooden lintel to
fireplace. On the 1st floor is a C17 wooden chamfered doorframe.
Roof timbers over higher end of house are Cl7 and consist of substantial principal
rafters with trenched purlins and a straight collar set into the trusses with
notched lap joints.
This house survives unspoilt by C20 modernisation with a traditional exterior.
