17/388 Random Cottage (shown as
as Escallonia on Os map)

House. Circa early C17 or earlier with a large 1970s rear wing. Cob and stone
rubble. Whitewashed and plastered (rear wing partly block), thatched roof, gabled at
ends, end stack to early wing with large semi-circular bread oven with slate roof,
rear wing thatched.
Plan: The early house is L plan, and now entered through the gable end of the main
block which runs parallel to Millen Lane. The main block is unheated, 1 room on plan
and now functions as the entrance hall witha stair opposite the front door. A 1-
room plan heated wing adjoins at the left (south-west). The long rear wing is said
to be 1970s but apparently incorporates a former outbuilding which was detached from
the house.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2 window front, projecting to the front at the
right with a C20 thatched porch and C20 front door; C20 3-light casement with diamond
leaded panes above. To the left there is a 3-light C20 window with diamond leaded
panes and an attic window in the thatch.
Interior: Open fireplace with a chamfered bar step stopped lintel, stone-lined bread
oven and stone jambs, chamfered stopped half-beam above fireplace. The partition
between the 2 ground floor rooms has been removed preserving the head beam of a plank
and muntin screen, the position of the original doorway in the screen abuts the
present stair.
Roof: 2 side-pegged jointed cruck trusses survive in the main block with halved
collars, apex not inspected. One of the cruck feet, visible from the early wing, has
been partly dressed-off, and the thick wall between the main block and the early wing
has been replaced with a partition wall.
