Cottage. Late C16 to early C17, enlarged in C18 or C19. Plastered granite stone
rubble; granite stacks topped with C19 brick; thatch roof.
PLAN: Three-room-and-through-passage plan house facing south. The Outer rooms are
heated, the right one by a projecting gable end stack and the left one by a rear
lateral stack. Unheated central room with cross passage between it and the right
room. Maybe there was once a rear passage doorway. Although no absolute proof was
noted it seems possible that the left room is an addition. Two storeys.
EXTERIOR: Irregular 3-window front of C19 and C20 replacement casements with
glazing bars. Front passage doorway is right of centre and contains a C19 plank
door behind a C20 gabled porch on rustic posts. Roof is gable-ended to right and
half-hipped to left.
INTERIOR inspection was limited to the ground floor which showed a house mostly the
result of apparently superficial C19 and C20 modernisations. The only exposed
carpentry is a late C16 - early C17 crossbeam with broad soffit chamfers and step
stops in the right room. The fireplace here is blocked by a C20 grate, as is
the left room fireplace (at time of listing). An axial beam in the centre room is boxed in. Roof was
not available for inspection but may well be original.
An attractive and little-modernised cottage amongst a group of listed buildings in
the middle of Throwleigh village.
