5/12 Yankee Cottage
Small house. Late C16/early C17 with some late C20 renovation and addition.
Colourwashed renderd cob on stone rubble footings; thatched roof, half-hipped at
right end, gabled at left end; left end stack with brick shaft.
Plan: Present plan a single depth south-facing range, 2 rooms wide with a direct
entrance into the left hand (west) room. Late C20 single-storey lean-to bathroom
addition at right (east) end, flat-roofed single-storey rear addition. The house is
almost certainly a truncated or rebuilt form of a larger building of the late
C16/early C17. The left hand room has carpentry and joinery detail of this date, a
bread oven a jointed cruck roof truss. It is not entirely clear whether this was a
lower end parlour and the passage and higher end to the right (east) have been
rebuilt and possibly reduced in size, or whether this was the higher end and the
lower end and passage are missing from the left (west), where the lane now passes;
this would depend on the date of the lane.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Almost symmetrical 2 window front, the eaves thatch gabled over
the first floor windows; approximately central C20 front door with a C20 thatched
porch on posts; small-pane timber casement windows late C20 copies of C19 windows.
Interior: Late C16/C17 carpentry in the left hand room; 2 chamfered stopped
crossbeams (one possibly re-sited), exposed joists (some renewed) and an open
fireplace with a chamfered stopped lintel and a bread oven. A plank and muntin
screen, the muntins chamfered and stopped facing the left hand room, divides the 2
rooms. The screen has been truncated at the rear to allow for a later stair that
rises from the right hand room.
Roof: A jointed cruck truss survives approximately in the centre of the house, the
crucks side-pegged, the ridge diagonally-set. Peg holes indicate that the truss was
infilled at one time.
A late C16/early C17 house remodelled as a cottage.
