SS 72 SW



House. Probably C18 or earlier, remodelled in the circa early C19, the rear outshut
raised to 2 storeys in the mid C20, C20 interior alterations. Whitewashed plastered
cob on stone rubble footings; tiled roof, gabled at ends (thatched until at least
1960, old list description); end stacks with brick shafts, the right end stack
projecting with a bread oven.
Plan: Sited end on to the road. 2 rooms wide with 2 principal rooms at the front
and narrow service rooms to the rear, entrance on right gable end. The plan has been
very altered this century - there was formerly a central entrance into a passage
and presumably the right hand room served as a kitchen (stack with bread oven) the
left hand room as a parlour. It is difficult to judge whether the rear outshut was
integral or secondary to the main block. The entrance passage no longer exists and a
second storey has been added to the outhsut which now includes the kitchen, the 2
front rooms being the principal living rooms.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Symmetrical 3-bay front with 16-pane circa early C19 timber
sashes except ground floor centre which is a re-used early C19 12-pane sash. Timber
sashes and casements to the rear elevation.
Interior: Modernized.
Forms part of a group at Alswear village.
