5/113 Knowle Cottage
Cottage. Mid C17, enlarged in the late C19, modernised with kitchen extension circa
1970. Plastered granite stone rubble; granite stone rubble stacks topped with C19
and C20 brick; thatch roof.
Plan and development: 2-room plan cottage with central through-passage facing south.
The right room has a rear projecting lateral stack and contains a tight winder
stair. The left room was added in the C19, probably at the same time as an outshot
containing pigsties and woodshed was built in front of the original right room. C20
kitchen extension on the right end. It is single storied; the cottage is 2 storeys.
Exterior: on the front the left room has a ground floor horned 4-pane sash and the
passage front doorway contains a C19 part-glazed 6-panel door. To right the roof is
carried down over the outshot. The roof is gable-ended. The rear windows are C20,
some of them PVC with glazing bars, but one at first floor level is C18 or C19 and
contains rectangular panes of leaded glass.
Interior: the original part, the main right room has its original C17 soffit-
chamfered crossbeam with bar-runout stops. The fireplace here is granite stone
rubble with an unusually thin (replacement?) oak lintel. The truss above,
apparently an A-frame is buried into a crosswall. The back of a cupboard in the
passage contains a disused C17 oak window; small, 2-light with chamfered mullion.
The left room has a plain-chamfered crossbeam and the oak lintel of the granite
fireplace has a similar finish.
