SX8961 CECIL ROAD
1947-1/4/6 (North side)
10/01/75 Nos.46, 48 AND 50
Row of 3 houses. No.50, at the left end, is probably the
earliest with C16 or earlier origins but thorough later
alterations. No.48 may be an C18 recasting of the lower end of
No.50; No.46 is probably C18, also with later alterations.
MATERIALS: Rendered, No.50 said to be cob; slate roof, gabled
at right end; stacks with rendered shafts.
PLAN: No.50 is partly hidden behind Nos 52 and 56 (qv) which
are set further forward towards the road. Originally 2-room on
plan and described in documents as late as 1777 as "the hall
and the parlour and chambre over the parlour" (documents in
the possession of the owners), suggesting the higher end of a
late medieval open hall house with an open hall surviving
until sometime between 1777 and 1828. No.48, with a one-room
plan main block, may be a recasting of or on the site of the
lower end of this house. No.46 is probably later, also with a
one-room plan main block.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 1:2:1-window front. No.50 is
entered on the left return with a C20 front door; No.48 via a
small C20 lean-to porch with corrugated-iron roof; No.46 via a
C20 slate-roofed lean-to porch across the front. All windows
C20 timber casements, some with glazing bars. No.46 has a
blocked doorway on the right return.
INTERIOR: No.50 has a chamfered stopped lintel to the left end
stack; partition between 2 rooms removed; rear right lateral
stack, now enclosed by various rear additions. No.46 has a
plain interior; No.48 not inspected. Nos 46 and 50 said to
have had evidence of pitched stone paving inside.
HISTORY: Nos 46 and 48 said to have been used at one time as
stabling for horses giving pleasure rides on the beach. Part
of the early core of Paignton.
