HIGH STREET (west side), Ide
Nos, 16 and 18


A row of 3 cottages, converted into 2 cottages. Circa mid/late C18. Colourwashed
plastered cob with a wheat straw thatched roof hipped at the left end; brick end
stacks, axial brick stick.
A row of 3 adjoining cottages of 1 build and identical plan. Each cottage has a
principal heated room at the front and a narrow unheated rear service room which is
divided between a partitioned-off winder stair, the service room proper and a narrow
lobby with a rear door leading to gardens at the rear. A direct entry leads into
each principal room at the opposite end of the room to the chimney stack. The right
hand and centre cottages are now one property, the front door of the right hand
cottage has been blocked and a narrow archway broken through the party wall adjacent
to the fireplace of the central cottage. Small conservatory added to the rear of
the centre cottage.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window range, the front doors to the left hand (no. 16)
and centre (no. 18) cottages adjacent to one another with an open porch with a
slated roof and small porch benches. No 16 preserves a 6-panel door, no. 18 has a
C20 half-glazed door. Circa late C18 2-light casement windows, 6-panes per light,
some with old catches. The ground floor window left of no. 18 has old shutters.
Interior: Very unaltered with original joinery and carpentry. C20 grates may
conceal the original fireplaces. The right hand cottage has symmetrical cupboards
with plank doors and strap hinges on either side of the fireplace, original first
floor floorboards, and a tiled floor to the principal ground floor room. The centre
and right hand cottages preserve the original stair with timber treads and risers.
Interior of no. 18 not inspected but said to be similar.
Although these properties are modest in scale and detail they are rare examples of
small scale village vernacular cottages of the region in a very unaltered condition.
