Cottage, now 2 flats. C16 or C17, modernised in the C20. Plastered cob on stone
rubble footings; -tone rubble stack topped with C19 and C20 brick, one on top of a
granite ashlar chimneyshaft; thatch roof.
Plan: 2-room-and-through-passage plan house facing south and built across the
hillslope. The right room, the former hall, has a large axial stack backing onto
the former passage and the left room has a gable-end stack. Since the roof was not
available for inspection at the time of this survey it is not possible to outline
the early development of the house here, although it seems likely the house began in
the C16 as some kind of open hall house, maybe heated by an open hearth fire. Now 2
Exterior: irregular 3-window front of C19 and C20 casements, the oldest is first
floor right and contains rectangular panes of leaded glass, the rest have glazing
bars. Former central front doorway behind C20 gabled porch the outer arch of which
now contains a round-headed window with radial glazing bars. The doorways to both
flats are in the rear wall, the first floor one up a flight of C20 stops. The roof
is gable-ended to left and to right it runs continously with the roof of Rookwood
Cottage (q.v) adjoining that end.
Interior: is largely the result of C19 and C20 superficial modernisations and the
ground floor carpentry is all plastered over and the fireplaces are blocked by C20
grates. The first floor was not available for inspection at the time of this survey
but a C16 or C17 roof structure is suspected. It might even be smoke-blackened.
