Atkins House


House formerly farmhouse. Early C17 possibly with earlier origins with probably
later C17, C18, C19 and C20 additions. Plastered cob walls. Gable-ended thatch
roof. Brick axial stack and one at right gable end, plastered rubble projecting
stack with brick shaft at left gable end and similar front lateral stack.
Plan: original plan not entirely clear but likely to have been 3-room-and-through-
passage plan - lower room to the right heated by front lateral stack, hall with
stack at its higher end and inner room heated by gable-end stack. 1-room addition
at right-hand end made in later C20 and heated by gable-end stack. With C18 outshut
added at its front; later C19 outshut built at front of left-hand end with C20. 2
storeys addition to right of centre.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2-window front with 3-light C19 casement to left
of centre on each floor and later C19 4-pane sash to right on 1st floor. Passage
doorway with C19 6-panel door to right of centre behind wooden lattice porch. Slate
roof leanto in front of left-hand end. Leanto to right with thatch extended in
catslide over it. C20 small flat-roofed wing immediately to its left. Rear
elevation has several early C19 sashes and gable over 1st floor windows with C19
Interior: chamfered cross beams are mainly plastered over. Partially open
fireplace in right-hand room has chamfered wooden lintel. Several early C18 fielded
2-panel doors survive and a good C18 wall cupboard with round-arched head which has
dropped keystone and fluted pilasters. No access to roofspace but feet of
substantial straight principals visible on 1st floor suggest a least a C17 date.
