1939-1/7/69 Knott Oak House and attached
29/07/76 outbuildings to the right


House. Early C18 block to the right, and mid C19 block to the
left. Limestone rubble, stepped stone copings and brick stacks
to gable ends, and to the right-of-centre of the C18 block,
which has a slate roof and is 2-unit in plan. The C19 block to
the left has a thatched roof and is double-depth plan.
The latter is 2 storeys; symmetrical 3-window range. It has a
projecting Tuscan Ham Hill stone porch over a wide door with 3
long panels to the top and 3 short ones to the base; above
this is a 3-light stone mullioned casement window. To the
sides on the ground floor are canted bays with 2/2-pane sash
windows; wide pointed-arch stone mullioned windows above,
3-lights, with Gothic-style intersecting glazing bars to the
top; these project through the eaves to form half-dormers with
fretted bargeboards and pendants.
The early C18 block to the right has a wide right-of-centre
planked door with inserted window and 3-light stone mullioned
casement windows to the right and taller 4-light ones to the
left, all with plate glass. The mullions are square-section
with beaded edges. The rear of the C19 block has small 3-light
casements under wooden lintels, but a large sash stair window
to the centre, suggesting the possibility that this block was
a remodelling of an older building.
INTERIOR: the C18 block has a flagstone floor and against the
far right wall is a large stone flat-arched fire-surround with
a keystone; the planked doors have original latches. The C19
block has a wide hall with open-well staircase, panelled
reveals to the doorcase of the left-hand room, and a reeded
cast-iron hob-grate in a slate surround.
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: 4 units of outbuildings of similar
materials, probably C19, are attached to the right, the 2
nearest the house are heated.
