2/65 Eveleighs
House, formerly keeper's cottage to Cruwys Morchard House, then dower house. Early
C17 origins, remodelled and extended in the C19, probably in 2 phases. Stone rubble
and cob, partly re-faced in stone in the 1980s, first floor of wing whitewashed and
rendered ; slate roof, gabled at ends ; axial stack to east-facing wing.
L plan. Single depth east-facing range, 2 rooms wide, rear left wing at right angles
consists of 1 principal room and the stair. Main entrance facing the stair, further
central entrance on east elevation. Although the exterior of the house appears to be
early/mid C19 it is a multi-phase building. The left hand ground floor room of the
east-facing range is C17 : this range appears to have been remodelled perhaps in the
early C19 as a 2 room plan building. The house was upgraded to a dower house to
Cruwys Morchard House in the later C19 when the south-facing wing was added and the
principal entrance moved to the south front.
2 storeys. 2:1 window south elevation, gabled to the front at the right end with C19
front doorway to left of centre with a rectanglular fanlight. Boxed 16-pane hornless
sashes to right of door ; 16-pane sashes with smaller margin panes to left of door;
similar 4 pane sash above door. The east elevation is 3 bays with a C20 stone open-
fronted porch with a lean-to roof and C19 2-light timber casements with margin
Interior The C17 room has a chamfered cross beam with step stops and a C17 fireplace
with a bread oven, stone rubble jambs and a chamfered stopped lintel. Other joinery
details are C19.
An evolved house with C17 origins and intact C19 fenestration.
Eveleighs is documented in the C17. In 1872 it was lived in by the curate of Cruwys
Morchard Church, Mr Laurie.
