Cottage. Probably mid C17 with C20 extensions. Rendered granite rubble walls, and
chimney stacks possibly with some cob. Thatched roof gable ended with wooden
shingle roof to single storey section.
Original plan somewhat obscured by later alterations, either single cell house or 2
room with unheated higher end since reduced to one storey, original location of
entrance also unclear. Gable end stack at lower end of hall/kitchen with newel
staircase to one side of it. C20 addition to front of higher end and large C20
extension linked to corner of lower end.
2 storeys. 2 window front, small C20 2-light casements with leaded panes, plate
glass to ground floor right. Projecting chimney stack to right gable end.
Interior: main room contains open fireplace which has chamfered wooden lintel with
scroll stops and granite jambs, the right hand are monolithic. In the left side is
a brick oven. Adjoining the fireplace to the left is a stone newel staircase.
There is one cross beam chamfered with scroll stops. At the upper end of the hall
is a solid stone wall. The roof consists of straight principal rafters with
lapped and pegged collars. Although considerably altered this house is
recognizable from its features as a relatively unusual example in this area of a
small C17 cottage.
