14/60 No's 57/59 (Cutler's
30.3.66 Cottage) (formerly
listed as No's 57 and


House. Initialled and dated "16I C78" (John Cutler) with C19 addition. Large
well-coursed gritstone, stone slate roof. 2-cell central lobby-entry plan with
added stable. 2 storeys, single-storey stable. Doorway has composite jambs,
Tudor-arched lintel with boldly incised date inscription and stop-chamfered surround
which continues on lintel to form spandrels. Flanking windows are double-chamfered
originally of 4 lights altered to 2 wide lights to accommodate 16-pane sash (now
mock with upper casement) with smaller similar windows above. Continuous cyma-
moulded ground floor hoodmould. Coped gables with kneelers and later stone stacks.
Original central ashlar-stack. Rear: altered with mid C20 addition. Right-hand
return has former 2-light window, altered to doorway, under hoodmould with
mutilated carved-face stops. Inserted window above. Attached at right angles
former stable (now part of house): large sash window with margin-dressed lintel
and tall gable stack.

Interior: 1st cell (the housebody) has stop-chamfered spine beam of large scantling
scarf-jointed at junction with modern fireplace, probably indicating the former
existence of a bressumer and firehood giving a lobby-entrance plan. The 2nd cell
(parlour) has chamfered spine beam and floor joists with ogee stops. Fireplace
has basket arch carried on cyma moulded corbels and stop-chamfered surround.

The house is significant as being one of only 2 C17 houses to survive the C18
rebuilding of Harewood as a model village for the Earl of Harewood. This house
being one of the few original free-hold properties on the estate.
