9/194 Stable House Gallery, Spring
- Cottage and Stable House


Range containing a house and shop with 2 cottages; possible a single house
originally, but the cottages may have been an early addition intended as a separate
dwelling or dwellings. Late C16 or C17, with late C19 or early C20 additions.
Stone rubble, painted at the front, with cob from sill-level in the second storey
upwards. Thatched roof. Small rendered chimneystack on left-hand gable, but on
ridge off-centre to right and projecting from right-hand gable wall, 2 stone stacks
with granite ashlar tops; these have weatherings and caps made up of projecting
stone-courses. Original plan uncertain, but left-hand side was a shop from at
least the late C19, the right-hand end having been divided off in C20; the original
arrangement was probably of 2 rooms, since there are 2 fireplaces. A small room to
the left of the shop also has a fireplace of some age, and may have formed a third
room originally. 2 storeys with single-storeyed additions. Front 7 windows wide,
the right-hand section (containing 3 of the windows) being clearly of different
build. Left-hand section has a 4-panelled door with brass dolphin-shaped knocker
to left late C19 gabled wood porch. To right a late C19 (certainly before 1890)
projecting shop front with tiled pent roof. Second-storey windows have C19 wood
casements, of 3 lights with rectangular leaded panes including much old glass. Tile
right-hand section has a 2-light wood casement window with 8 panes per light at the
left-hand end; to right are 2 late C19 doors, each with 4 panels. In the second
storey the windows are 3-light wood casements with leaded panes matching those in
the left-hand section. All 3 openings in the ground storey have late C16 or C17
chamfered wood lintels with bar stops, the bars having a full pyramid shape. The
second storey windows have similar wood lintels, but with plain run-out stops. The
right-hand gable contains a single window, this being in the ground storey to the
right of the chimney. It is a wood casement of 2 lights with leaded panes, and has
a chamfered wood lintel with bar-stops matching those in the front wall.
Interior: the shop has a centrally-placed upper-floor beam, chamfered and with
scroll-stops having 2 notches. Over the right-hand wall, inserted in C20, is a
chamfered beam with run-out stops. In the rear wall, to left, is a large fireplace
with big, plain granite jamb-stones on the left side, the right side being
concealed by plaster and inserted stonework; chamfered wood lintel with scroll-
stops. At the back is a large oven with brick opening and brick domed roof; the
base and sides, however, are of large stone blocks. To left of fireplace is a
rounded stair turret with thick wood newel post; between storeys is a late C16 or
Cl7 wood window of 2 lights with flat splay mullions. The former right-hand end of
the shop (now part of Spring Cottage) has a wide fireplace with chamfered wood
lintel having run-out stops. Backing on to it is another wide fireplace with plain
wood lintel. Upper storey of Spring Cottage and the whole of cottage at north-west
end not inspected internally. Roof of left-hand section, including the left side
of Spring Cottage, has an old roof, difficult of access. There is certainly a late
C16 or early C17 truss in the centre, having plain feet set in the wall-tops and a
halved collar with shaped ends. 2 other old trusses are just discernible to the
north-west of it. The building seems to have been called Staple Cottage in 1615.

survey in Somerset Record Office and on talks with older residents of Lustleigh.
