1/285 Ashleigh Cottage and Ivy Cottage
2 cottages. Late C17, Ivy Cottage modernised with rear service extension of circa
1980. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings; stone rubble stack topped with C19
brick; thatch roof.
Plan: pair of contemporary 2-room plan cottages facing south. Each was a mirror
plan of the other either side of the party wall which contains an axial stack
serving back-to-back fireplaces. The left cottage, Ashleigh Cottage, preserves the
original layout more or less intact comprising a large inner heated room and small
unheated outer room (a dairy/pantry) central doorway into the main room. The rear
outshot maybe an original feature. In Ivy Cottage the 2 rooms have been knocked
into one, the front doorway blocked and replaced by one round the corner and into a
new C20 rear block which has replaced the outshot. Both cottages are 2 storeys.
Exterior: overall 5-window front of C19 and C20 casements with glazing bars (the
older ones are oak-framed). The 2-window section to Ashleigh Cottage is nearly
symmetrical about the central doorway which now contains a C20 panelled door behind
a contemporary gabled porch. Ivy Cottage has a 3-window front, the central ground
window here is blocking the original front doorway. The roof is half-hipped to
right and gable-ended-to left.
Interior: in Ashleigh Cottage no carpentry detail is exposed and the fireplace is
blocked by a C20 grate. Nevertheless there is some early, maybe original, joinery
detail, a couple of bead-moulded doorframes containing old plank doors. By contrast
in Ivy Cottage the carpentry detail is exposed. The stone rubble fireplace has a
soffit-chamfered and runout-stopped oak lintel and contains an oven relined in the
C19. The main crossbeam is soffit-chamfered with straight-cut stops. Roof
throughout of A-frame trusses with pegged lap-jointed collars.
