gable stacks, and the left gable is plain, the right gable
slate hung. The rear has a small gabled wing to the left, and

INTERIOR: the ground floor is in 2 rooms without dividing
passage, with a lime-ash floor to the left; no beams or joists
are exposed. A lateral stair rises to the left, with a landing
balustrade with thin turned balusters. The first floor has
many original wide boards.
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: enclosing the small garden to the front

HISTORICAL NOTE: the house, which lies set well back from the
adjoining St Vincent (qv), at one stage was a service range to
the latter, and at this time the link was probably
constructed. The property was given to the town by Henry
Sutton, first Secretary of the Exmoor Society, in 1962.
