7/39 Hill View
House. Early to mid C17 with C20 internal alterations. Rendered stone rubble and
cob. Thatch roof with plain ridge and gable ends. Rendered stack at right end,
demolished stack at left end and front lateral hall stack with offsets heightened in
Plan: Subsequent alterations, particuarly in C20 have obscured original plan; the two
early C17 (clean) trusses are situated over right end and suggest the house may have
originated as a 2 room plan with hall heated by front lateral stack to left of
possible former cross-passage and lower end to right. Probably in the late C17 the
house appears to have been extended to the left to form a third room and the plan
reversed, the passage being resited to the left of the hall. The functions of the
two end rooms are unclear; the room beyond the hall at the right end appears to have
served as a kitchen at least since the C19, while the room at the left end, though
panelled on 1 wall, nevertheless retains evidence of an apparent smoking chamber to
the left of the fireplace. At some stage, probably in the early C19 the house was
divided into 2 occupations, and in C20 the secondary stairs were removed from the
rear of the kitchen at right end, and the passage considerably widened by encroaching
on the room at the left end, to create a wide entrance hall containing principal
staircase also replaced in C20. C20 single storey to outshut to rear.
Exterior: 2 storeys. 4 window range. Early C19 fenestration entirely intact, all 3
light casements with small rectangular leaded panes. Shallow verendah with slate
roof extends to left and right of, and in line with front lateral stack, supported on
C20 timber posts and incorporating C20 entrance porch towards left end with door
surround in C17 style. C20 3-light casement inserted in blocked doorway towards
right end.
Interior Much altered in C20. Some late C17 panelling, probably resited, survives
to room at left end extending to full-height of inner partition wall, 3 1/2 panels high
with scratch moulded stiles and rails and incorporating panelled door with H-L
hinges. Chamfered fireplace lintel. Cupboard to left has ceiling meat-hooks and
probably served as a smoking chamber. Single chamfered cross-ceiling beam to hall;
hall fireplace rebuilt in C20. C17 ovolo-moulded 4-centred arched door surround to
small single storey outshut to rear right end, also possibly reused.
Roof: 2 raised cruck trusses over right end with two tiers of threaded purlins, the
morticed and tenoned collars removed. No evidence of smoke-blackening. 3 trusses
over left end have straight principals and pegged lapped collars.
