6/70 The Retreat
House. Early C19, probably a refashioning of an earlier house. Colourwashed
plastered stone to ground floor level, stud walling to first floor level, slate
mansard roof, gabled at ends; end stacks, axial stack.
Single depth plan, 2 rooms wide with 2 principal heated front rooms, one on each side
of a cross passage with a stair adjacent to the passage and a series of rear lean-tos
and projections. A large lean-to at the left end was added as a kitchen in the
1870s (stack dismantled) and is now used for storage. The disposition of the stacks
and documentation in the possession of the owner suggests that the origins of the
house date back to the C17 although later remodelling has obscured or removed the
2 storeys and attic. Almost symmetrical 3-bay front with a C20 glazed porch in the
centre, 2-storey canted bays to left and right with small pane sash windows, the left
hand bay slightly smaller than the right hand bay with fewer panes to the central
Interior Numerous features of interest including joinery, local marble chimney-
pieces, decorated plaster friezes, and a stick baluster stair with turned newels, a
ramped handrail and a curved balustrade. One first floor C18 chimneypiece, complete
with fire basket survives on the first floor.
The house was formerly called Taverners.
