ST 00 SE
3/140 Perhams Green Cottage

Cottage. Late C17, raised in height in the early - mid C19, renovated in the early
C20. Plastered cob and local stone rubble; cob and stone rubble stacks topped with
C19 and C20 brick; thatch roof.
Plan: 2-room central staircase plan cottage facing north-west. Both rooms have
gable-end stacks. The left (north-east) room is the former kitchen, the right room
the former parlour. The central staircase was inserted in the early C20 blocking an
original through-passage. It is thought that the original stair rose alongside the
parlour fireplace. For some time before the early C20 renovation the building
housed 2 1-room plan cottages. 2 storeys with C20 service outshot to rear and lean-
to woodstore on the left end.
Exterior: symmetrical 2-window front of early C20 service outshot to rear and lean-
to woodstore of early C20 horned 4-paned sashes arranged around a central doorway
which contains an early C20 4-panel door behind a contemporary gabled porch with
open wavy bargeboards and trellis sides. The bead-moulded doorframes of both front
and rear doorways may be original. The gable-ended roof is unusually tall and
steeply pitched.
Interior: the late C17 features are confined to the ground floor. The former
kitchen has a plain-chamfered crossbeam and the large plastered fireplace has a
chamfered oak lintel. It includes a blocked oven doorway. The parlour crossbeam is
chamfered witn runout, double nick stops at the passage end. The fireplace here has
been partly rebuilt. It is now plastered stone rubble but the chamfered oak lintel
has a peg hole from a timber jamb on the left side at least. The roof is carried on
early - mid C19 tie beam trusses with spiked lap-jointed collars and X-apexes.
