1980s extension at the left end. Whitewashed rendered stone rubble with some cob to
the first floor; thatched roof, hipped at ends; axial stack, rear left lateral stack,
rear right angle stack.
Plan: Originally a single depth 3 room plan house, the hall in the centre, an inner
room to the right (refurbished as an early C18 parlour), with an entrance to the left
of the hall which may originally have led into a passage. The house has been divided
into 2 through the centre of the hall with flying freeholds and a C20 extension has
been added at the left end.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2:2 window front giving 2 double-fronted
cottages, Thatch End to the left. C20 porch to Thatch End which has a C17 ovolo-
moulded doorframe; thatched glazed porch to the Thatched Cottage to the right. 2-
light timber casement windows with glazing bars (first floor window right retaining
some square leaded panes), except ground floor right which is a good early C18 12-
pane sash with thick moulded glazing bars; 2 similar early C18 sashes to the right
return.
Interior: The hall (half in each cottage), has a chamfered stopped crossbeam,
scratch-moulded joists and an open fireplace (in the Thatched Cottage) with a jewel
step-stopped lintel and a bread oven. The right hand room has a rebuilt angle
fireplace in the rear right corner and a fitted C18 china cupboard with shaped
shelves. Thatch End has a winder stair with a straight flight lit by a 2-light C17
mullioned window with leaded panes.
Roof: Timbers in Thatch End only inspected: pegged A frames of an C18 character.
