Listing Text

The following building shall be added:-

SX 8042
1310-/14/10000 Peartree Cottage


House, converted into 2 cottages in C19, and now united as one house. Coursed local
stone rubble with gabled slate roof and end stacks finished in C19 brick. 2-room plan
with integral rear outshot, room to right of front being heated by large external stack. 2
storeys; 2-window south front with segmental stone arches over mid C20 windows and
one blocked opening to centre: this is in the accepted position for a doorway, but is
curiously raised above ground level and of low proportions. The main entrance was to
the rear outshot. Interior includes original joists, C18 doors with original fittings and
4-bay collar-truss roof with halved and pegged collars and apexes; curved principal
rafter to outshot. Large open fireplace with timber lintel to right and former parlour
to left with fragments of original moulded dado and fireplace flanked by panelled
cupboard in moulded architrave to left and semi-circular arched keyed moulded architrave
to cupboard on right with panelled doors opening to carved shelves and elaborate shell
niche, an interesting example of the provincial Cl8 joiner's craft. An early example of the
2-room plan with integral outshot, with some interesting original detail, prominently
situated to the north of the church.
