4/65 Otter House

House. Early C19. Plastered stone rubble or brick; probably brick stacks topped
with C19 brick; slate roof.
The house faces west. It has a double-depth plan with 3 rooms front and back. The
entrance hall and stair are right (south) of centre. Massive axial stack between
the centre and left rooms. 2 storeys with attics.
Regular but not symmetrical 3-window front is mostly original. All 3 ground floor
windows and the middle first floor window are 3-light casements with glazing bars
which include a top tier of pointed arches. The outer first floor windows are
shorter and plainer with glazing bars. The doorway is set right of centre and
contains a part-glazed panelled door, a narrow overlight, panelled reveals and a
doorcase with Tuscan pilasters and moulded entablature including a dentil cornice.
The plaster front is lightly scored as ashlar. Above is the deep projecting eaves
carried on widely-spaced pairs of shaped brackets. The roof is unusually tall and
gable-ended to right and half-hipped to left. It contains a C20 skylight left of
centre. The other windows are C19 and C20 casements most with glazing bars and one,
in the left end wall, with panes of leaded glass.
Interior contains a good deal of original detail.
