7/175 No. 17, Millside Cottage (formerly
listed as Nos. 1 and 2)
House, formerly 2 cottages. Late C18-early C19, thoroughly renovated circa 1975.
Plastered cob on stone rubble footings; stone rubble or brick stacks topped with
C19 brick, one stack with Rolle estate chimney pots; thatch roof, pantile to
3-room plan cottage facing north onto the Green and at the west end of a row of
contemporary cottages. The right (western) end room is an addition. The centre
room has an axial (former end) stack to right and the left room has an end stack in
the party wall shared with the adjoining cottage, No. 15 (q.v.). 2-storey outshots
to rear of centre and left rooms. Although these have been rebuilt there was
originally a kitchen outshot to rear of the left room served by a stack backing onto
the main block. At some time (probably when the third front room was added) the
house was divided into 2. One of these cottages occupied the left room and kitchen
outshot, the other occupied the other 2 front rooms. Now they have been reunited to
a single house. 2 storeys.
The original part has a symmetrical 3-window front of C19 casements, all with
rectangular panes of leaded glass except the central first floor casement which has
glazing bars. Central doorway with C19 4-panel door and monopitch hood an shaped
brackets. Another identical door and hood immediately to right and beyond that
another C19 casement with leaded glass. There is a painted window on the first
floor. Roof is gable-ended to right and continuous with the roof of No. 15 to left.
Interior is mostly the result of the circa 1975 modernisation. The fireplaces are
blocked and the first floor is now carried on boxed in RSJs. Roof not inspected.
Millside Cottage is one of an attractive row of cottages near the Church of St
Michael (q.v.) and Otterton Mill (q.v.). These cottages are an unusual mixture of
vernacular cob and thatch with more polite C19 detail on the doorways and some of
