C19 to rear of right-hand room. Later in C19 or early C20 a 2-storey porch was

Library in Moretonhampstead.
2 storeys. 3-window range. C19 sashes without glazing bars; first floor in

the first floor jettied on shaped wooden corbels at front and with applied sham
timber framing, moulded bargeboards and wooden finial. Fielded panel door, top
panels glazed, and with side lights. Front inner doorway has early C18 double
doors, each with 4-panels, 2 small centre panels side by side and large top and
bottom panels.
Interior: ground floor right hand room has roughly chamfered ceiling beam and C20
fireplace. Left hand room has blocked fireplace with C20 chimney pieces. Two panel
doors on ground floor at rear. Framed staircase behind stack; the top flight has
early C18 balustrade with closed string, heavy turned balusters and square handrail
with moulded capping butted up to square newels moulded at the corners and with
ball finials; bottom flight replaced.
First floor has simple C18 chimneypieces with moulded cornices and moulded
architraves and small panelled pot-cupboards to side. 2 early C18 first floor
doors made from planks and rails to form panelled appearance, and another C18 2-
panel door also on first floor.
Including C19 front garden area railings with sort of fleur-de-lis or spearhead
shafts, baluster stanchions set in granite plinth.
Cross Tree Cottage has some interesting early C18 internal joinery and the exterior
which has been little altered since the C19 has group value with other listed
buildings in Cross Street.
