House. Circa mid C16 origins, some rebuilding of the C17, C19 alteration and
possible extension, C20 renovations. Colourwashed rendered cob on stone rubble
footings, left gable end wall brick; thatched roof hipped at left end, gabled at
right end; end stacks, axial stack.
The present plan is single depth, 4 rooms wide with a rear projection. The
development of the plan is difficult to determine but a change in roof structure and
plane of the front wall indicates that the left-hand end of the house is the earliest
and may have been the lower end of a 3 room and passage house although there is no
evidence of an extant passage. The 3 rooms to the right of the axial stack include,
in the centre, a narrow unheated room which has been subdivided in the C20.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 5-window front, the left-hand end under a slightly lower
roofline with the remains of an old wallplate. Front door with a flat canopy carried
on brackets to right of centre leading into the unheated room, second entrance at the
extreme left. Fenestration of 2- and 3-light small pane casements.
Interior Several early features survive. The left-hand room has a chamfered cross
beam with run-out stops, large brick fireplace with bread oven. The adjoining room
at the right has a large fireplace with a plain lintel and a deeply-chamfered cross
beam with step stops. A rear stair, probably late C17, takes up half the rear
projection. The unheated room has a late C17 mullioned window at the rear; the
right-hand room has a C19 brick fireplace and a C17 chamfered cross beam with ogee
stops. The first floor has a chamfered pegged doorway with step stops into the
right-hand room, 1 jointed cruck truss survives over the left-hand end, the roof
trusses in the projection and main range appear to be C17, a closed truss conceals
the timbers over the right-hand room.
2 outbuildings and a section of wall adjoining the left-hand end of the house and at
right angles to it form the rendered whitewashed west wall of the farmyard adjacent
to the road and are included for group value.
Great Uppacott is a large thatched house with early features; it is part of a good
group with Hore Uppacott (qv) on a corner site.
