(Formerly Listed as:
Bellaire House and house adjoining
Small house. House on the site documented in 1611, existing
structure probably C18 with late C18/early C19 alterations
(possibly divided from No.2 (qv) at this date) and with
substantial late C20 renovation. Roughcast mass wall
construction; natural slate roof, gabled at left end; end
stacks with brick shafts with corbelled cornices.
Double-depth plan, 2 rooms wide (heated from end stacks) with
a wide central entrance passage from which the stairs rise at
2 storeys. Symmetrical 3-window range with probably early C19
timber lattice gabled porch with scalloped barge-boards with
pendant and finial. 2 ground floor C19 16-pane sashes; 3
first-floor narrow 12-pane sashes of an early C18 character
with boxed frames and old glass.
INTERIOR: attractive paving to passage; C19 joinery survives,
otherwise house thoroughly altered in the late C20.
HISTORICAL NOTE: according to Reed the house, along with its
neighbour to the right, No.2 (qv), was bought by John Cutliffe
from Lord Howard in 1611 and was then known as Cutliffe's
Tenement. Nicholas Tossell, a builder, bought the premises
before 1800 and may have been responsible for dividing it into
(Reed MA: Pilton, its Past and Present: Barnstaple: 1985-).
