6/9 Shotash
- II
House, formerly farmhouse. Circa mid/late C17, late C20 renovations. Whitewashed
rendered stone; thatched roof with plain ridge gabled at left end, half-hipped at
right end; projecting left end stack, front lateral stack with tall brick shaft.
Plan: 3 room and through passage plan, the lower end to the left, heated by the left
end stack; the hall heated by the front lateral stack; the inner room, to the right,
unheated. A rear right projection may originally have contained a framed stair, a
C20 stair has been inserted against the rear wall of the right end room. A rear
left outshut with a tiled roof is possibly a post C17 addition.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window front, the eaves thatch slightly eyebrowed over the
3 first floor windows and carried down as a catslide roof over the C20 porch to the
passage to left of centre. C20 2-leaf glazed doors to the porch. 2 and 3-light
first floor casements with square leaded panes; ground floor windows C20 metal framed
casements in enlarged embrasures.
Interior The plan and much of the C17 carpentry is intact. The hall has a moulded
cross beam with bar step hollow stops; replaced fireplace lintel and a plank and
muntin screen to the passage, the muntins plain on the hall side but chamfered to the
passage. The inner room (to the right) has a roughly-chamfered axial beam. The
lower end (to the left) has a chamfered cross beam with pyramid stops, exposed joists
and a C20 grate probably concealing earlier features. C18 plank and cover strip
doors from passage to lower end and hall.
Roof: 1 side-pegged jointed cruck survives over the passage (apex not inspected); the
right hand truss is boxed in but appears to have straight principals. This feature
and some disturbance to the right end walls suggest that this end may have been
rebuilt. The remains of 2 chamfered stopped doorframes survive on the first floor.
A fairly intact C17 vernacular house of the region, conspicuous from the road.
