3/34 Lillipit Cottage
Small house. C17 with C19 and C20 alterations. Granite and slate rubble walls with
gable ended slate roof. 3 rubble stacks, one axial, one lateral at the front and
one at right-hand gable end of original house.
Original plan difficult to interpret from present layout; appears to have consisted
of 2 rooms, the right-hand one heated by a front lateral stack. This room is deeper
and projects at the rear from the left-hand part which now consists of a room at the
front which is divided from a lobby at the rear by an axial stack. The unusual
position of this stack and the lack of early features to the fireplace suggest that
it may be inserted. The original purpose of the lobby behind is unclear, it now
houses a C20 staircase. The building cannot have extended further to the right from
the evidence of 2 original windows and the ground is higher at the left-hand end but
it is possible that it originally extended further to the rear. Late C20 extension
added at right-hand end.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical, 1 window front with late C20 3-light casement on 1st floor
at left-hand end. Below it is C20 plank and glazed door with wood lintel above. To
its right is single light C20 casement which has chamfered granite lintel. To the
right the roof line drops and the massive lateral stack projects with set-offs, a
later brick shaft and rectangular oven projection to its left. At right-hand gable
end is a 2 light granite mullion window with hoodmould which has flower motif in
labels. Late C20 extension set back from right-hand gable end. At rear the left-
hand side of the house projects with a 2-light granite mullion window on ground
floor. Other windows are small-paned mainly C19 casements.
Interior: right-hand room has chamfered wood lintel to fireplace, stops are
