- II

2 dwellings, formerly a single farmhouse. Early C17, remodelled in the C18 and
C19, with some C20 additions. Rough cast cob, with some Heavitree stone; hipped
thatched roof. A variant of the 3-room, cross-passage, plan house with a central
unheated service room to the left of the passage, and a heated parlour and hall to
the left and right-hand ends respectively. Newel stairs in a rear stair turret
oppose a truncated front lateral external stack that heats the parlour; the hall
was probably heated by an end stack, but the present end stack is part of a C19
rebuilding of the end wall. 2 storeys.
Front (facing south, away from the main road) : 5-window range; C19 2-light
casement windows to first floor. Ground floor with 2 C20 pantiled leantos. Rear :
iregular fenestration; 2 single light C19 windows to first floor; 4 C19 windows
to ground floor under depressed arches. The stair turret is large and unlit.
Interior: hall ceiling beam with scroll stops, and half beam with damaged stops.
Parlour with axial ceiling beam with roll stop. Solid cob partition between
passage and service room. The newel stairs have been replaced, probably in C19.
Jointed cruck above hall. House is still largely as described by N W Alcock,
'Houses in an East Devon Parish', Trans.Devon Assoc., 94 (1962), pp. 209-11, p1.11,
12, 22; fig.13.
