2 cottages, formerly a single house. Late C17-early C18, divided and modernised in
C19. Plastered cob on rubble footings; cob and rubble stacks topped with C20
brick; mostly thatch, partly slate roof.
Pair of cottages facing north. Reeves at right (west) end is a T-shaped building
comprising 1 room with rear corner stack in main block and 2 rooms at right end
under wide roof on same axis as main block. Rear room once had rear kitchen stack.
Part Reeves at left (east) end is a 2-room plan cottage comprising a larger right
room served by axial stack in party wall and left room made out of former
carriageway. Early C20 service extension to rear. 2 storeys. Irregular
fenestration. Main block has overall 5 ground and 3 first floor windows of late C19
and C20 casements, the older ones with glazing bars. The 2 ground floor right
windows (to Reeves) are horned large-pane sashes with glazing bars, the right one
blocking site of former door. Early C20 4-panel door and window at left end (Part
Reeves) occupy front arch of former carriageway and C20 iron-framed casement to
right blocks former doorway. Slate-roofed right end of Reeves projects into street
with C20 door in the side and, on the front, a first floor 16-pane sash and ground
floor 12-pane former shop window with timber architrave which includes simple
pilasters with capitals.
Interiors: both show mainly results of C19 and C20 modernisations. All fireplaces
have C20 grates and large kitchen fireplace has been demolished. No beams are
exposed. In Part Reeves a cupboard alongside the fireplace hides blocked doorway
showing that 2 cottages were once connected. The only evidence of late C17-early
C18 origins is another cupboard in Part Reeves, its panelled door hung on H-hinges
with trefoil ends. Roof not inspected.
