28-MAY-03 Keepers Cottage


House. Circa C15; altered C17 and remodelled internally mid to late C19. Rendered coursed stone with dressed stone quoins and windows. Welsh slate roof with stone coped gable ends. Brick gable-end stacks and truncated lateral stack on north east front.
PLAN: Rectangular on plan with kitchen and parlour heated from corner fireplaces in gable-end stacks and small unheated service room at centre. This internal arrangement is largely the result of C19 remodelling. Originally probably a 3-bay first floor hall with a 1-bay solar, the hall heated from a lateral fireplace and probably with unheated service rooms on the ground floor.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys. South west front: doorway to right of centre with dressed stone jamb on right, large 2-light stone mullion/transom window with hoodmould above and deeply chamfered blocked single-light first floor window to right. Rear north east has projecting lateral stack [truncated] to right of centre, two large 2-light stone mullion/transom windows with hoodmoulds on first floor; 2-light casement on ground floor right and doorway to left of centre. Large stone mullion/transom 2-light window on south east gable end to first floor.
INTERIOR: Circa mid to late C19 joinery and first floor replaced C19. Ground floor has corner fireplaces at each end with circa early C17 chamfered stone Tudor arch chimneypieces. First floor has blocked lateral fireplace with chamfered stone jambs. 4-bay roof with two arch-braced collar trusses, the fourth bay the solar separated by closed truss with cranked collar, the studs missing; diagonal ridgepiece and trenched purlins missing or reset; wind-braces missing and common-rafters replaced.
A rare example of a small late Medieval first floor hall house situated in a deer park belonging to the Abbots of Sherborne.
