Cottage. Probably late C17-early C18, modernised 1986. Plastered cob on stone
rubble footings; stone rubble or cob stacks topped with C20 brick; thatch roof.
L-shaped building. The main block faces south : the left (western) room is the
larger and has a rear lateral stack and the right room has an end stack (maybe an
insertion). Service room in lower rear block set at right angles behind the right
(eastern) end. 2 storeys.
Irregular 2-window front of 1986 casements without glazing bars, those on the first
floor with flat thatch eyebrows over. The doorway is near the left end and contains
a part-glazed door from the 1986 modernisation. All the other windows around the
house are contemporary. The main roof is half-hipped each end and the rear block
roof also has a half-hipped end.
Interior now shows mainly the result of the 1986 modernisation although this appears
superficial since the original layout is preserved. The main (left) front room and
the rear service room both have late C17-early C18 crossbeams with neat soffit
chamfers without stops. The main room fireplace is also probably original; it is
plastered but the oak lintel is soffit-chamfered. Roof of A-frame trusses. The
roofspace was not inspected but the builders report pegged lap-jointed collars
there.
