- II

House. Early C19 with an earlier rear wing. Whitewashed plastered stone rubble, the
C19 range with some cob below the eaves; slate roof, hipped to the C19 range with
lead rolls to the hips and ridge, gabled at the rear of the rear wing. Left end
stack, rear right stack at junction between builds, gable end stack to rear wing.
The main early C19 range has a single depth plan with a principal room on either side
of a central entrance hall probably containing the stairs. At the rear of the right-
hand room is a service wing which appears to be an early C19 remodelling of an
earlier single-depth house, the plan of which is uncertain but was probably reused as
a service wing when the early C19 front range was added.
2 storeys. Symmetrical 3-window front with a dentil cornice; central 6-panel front
door (top panels glazed) under a flat canopy carried on brackets; rectangular
fanlight with diamond glazing bars. Fenestration of 16-pane hornless sashes with
external shutters.
Interior of front range not inspected but interior features of the early C19 may
survive. The rear wing has a C20 range inserted in a large fireplace with granite
jambs and a bread oven to the left. The room abutting the early C19 range has a
boxed in cross beam and C20 grate, possibly concealing earlier features.
