10/415 Little Harvey and
Little Harvey Cottage
23.8.55 (formerly listed as
Teignharvey Farmhouse
with thatched barns)


Farmhouse divided into 2. Probably early C16, remodelled early/mid C17 when
the rear wing may have been added. C20 renovations. Colourwashed rendered
stone; thatched roof with plain ridge hipped at left end, gabled at right end,
hipped at end of rear wing; front left protecting lateral stacks axial stack
with rendered shaft, right end stack.
Plan: Likely to be a late medieval open hall house in origin but with no access
to the roofspace this remains unproven. The main range is single depth, Little
Harvey probably the hall and inner room of a 3 room plan range (passage no longer
exists) axial hall stack backing on to the passage. Little Harvey Cottage,
to the left, the lower end, heated from a lateral stack at the front. A rear
wing at right angles to the hall is probably secondary to the main range, a
rounded recess on the rear wall of the hall may be the site of the C17 stair.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Assymetrical 4 window front, the front door to Little
Harvey probably Cl7, 2 planks with a massive timber lock box; C20 gabled porch
hood. Front door to Little Harvey at extreme left. 2 - 3 and 4-light late
C20 plastic windows with glazing bars.
Interior: Little Harvey only inspected. The hall has a C20 fireplace, probably
concealing earlier features; a higher end plank and muntin screen (painted white)
with roll-moulded muntins and chamfered, plastered-over crossbeams at either
end which may be jetties. Plastered-over chamfered crossbeams in right hand
room with additional support at the front end.
Roof: No access to apex at time of survey (1987) but there is a jointed cruck
truss over the right end of the house (cruck feet plastered over), collar above
ceiling height. The next truss to the left, which is partly buried in a first
floor partition appears to have a lower collar and has been altered to make
room for an axial passage leading into the left hand first floor room; this
has involved cutting off some of the rafters. Either or both of these trusses
could be medieval. Little Harvey not inspected, but may retain features of
interest including the possibility of medieval roof timbers.
