ST 01 NW
4/161 Cott Farmhouse
- II

2 cottages, formerly a single farmhouse. Mid - late C17, sub-divided in the late
C19 - early C20. Plastered stone rubble, probably with some cob; stone rubble stack
topped with C20 brick; thatch roof.
Plan: the building overall faces south and has a 4-room plan. Originally it was a
single farmhouse with central lobby plan. The outer rooms are smaller unheated
rooms. The larger inner rooms are heated by a central axial stack serving back-to-
back fireplaces. Since no internal inspection was available at the time of this
survey it is not possible to elucidate the original layout. Now the house has been
divided into 2 cottages, each a 2-room plan either side of the central stack . The
right (eastern) cottages uses the original lobby entrance onto the front of the
central stack. The left-hand (western) cottage has a doorway inserted into the
outer unheated room. Both cottages (and the original farmhouse) is 2 storeys.
Exterior: overall regular but no longer symmetrical 4-window front, mostly C20
casements with glazing bars although the 2 first floor windows towards the right are
probably original; they are oak-framed with flat-faded mullions and contain
rectangular panes of old leaded glass. The original central lobby entrance has a
C20 porch and front doorway. At the left (west) end the cottage has an inserted
doorway a C20 plank door. The roof is half-hipped each end.
Interior: was not available for inspection at the time of this survey although it
is reported that the original carpentry detail is well-preserved.
