15/41 Neat Cottage
House. Probably C17 and early C18, altered C19 and C20. Limestone rubble with
wooden lintels and some ashlar dressings; Welsh-slate roof with stone-and-brick
stacks. 3-unit plan with rear wing and outshut. 2 storeys plus attic. Irregular
3-window front has a recessed central section containing the doorway, to extreme
right, and a 2-light casement to left of it, both with old stop-chamfered
lintels; a 2-light first-floor casement in the left section has a similar
lintel. Other casements have later plain lintels, including a large window in
the right section which adjoins a secondary entrance and was probably a shop
window. Cellar beneath the left section has a 2-light stone-mullioned window.
Steep-pitched roof has gable parapets bearing stacks, and has a third stack to
left of the middle section. Right gable wall includes a shallow projection.
Centrally-placed rear wing also has a gable parapet, and adjoins an outshut.
Interior: right section has a fine early/mid-C17 cross beam with elaborate
chamfer stops, a mutilated fireplace with adjoining C17 cupboards hung on
leather hinges, and a large open chamber fireplace. Middle section is probably
mainly mid/late C17 and has a large open fireplace, chamfered joists and beam,
an ovolo-moulded 2-light wood-mullioned window with lattice glazing (now
internal), and a dogleg stair with heavy turned balusters, now incorporated into
the outshut. Left section and rear wing are probably early C18 and retain a roof
truss and some butt purlins. Roof is largely C19. Central section may be on the
site of an earlier hall and could incorporate some early masonry.
