reunited in C20. Plastered cob above stone rubble. thatched roof with
gabled end. Scantle slate roof half-hipped rear wing with early crested
ridge tiles. Stone rubble gable end chimney stacks with slate weathering
and recessed tops, the left hand has old thrown chimney pot.
Plan: Probably originally a 2-room plan house with 2 equal size rooms
heated from gabled end stacks, and probably with central entrance passage
containing the stairs. At the rear centre is a 2 storey unheated one room
plan wing which may be a later C18 addition. The house was converted into
2 cottages probably in C19 and an outshut was added in the angle behind the
right hand room. It was reunited in C20 to one house with a central
staircase but retaining 2 front doorways.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Regular 3 window range. Cl8 2 and 3-light casements,
some with glazing bars C19 plank door to right, Cl8 2-panel door (it is
actually a plank door with applied stiles and rails) to left of centre.
Across most of the front over the ground storey is a slated pentice roof on
probably C18 shaped and chamfered timber cantilevers. At the loft end a
small C20 glazed store has been built against the front.
Interior: fairly light scantling closely spaced ceiling beams with slight
chamfers and run-out stops. The fireplaces are blocked with C20 grates.
There are many C18 fielded 2-panel doors throughout the house. Plastered
partition between first floor left hand room and landing (forming central
room) has painted oval inscribed "Pan Intrantibes". On the other side of
the partition in the left room a moulded plaster oval surrounded by 2
laurel branches. On the opposite side of this room on the end wall a large
moulded plaster panel over a blocked fireplace. this left room has been
partitioned and a new ceiling inserted which the present owner reports is a
replacement of a moulded plaster ceiling with "oval and ivy leaves"; a
small section of the oval survives. Under the cills of the first floor
room of the rear wing there are 2 small wall cupboards with fielded panel
Roof: the collars are lapped and pegged to the faces of the straight
