STRETE STRETE
SX84NW Cottage and Store
5/248 immediately North East of
Kings Arms Public House

GV II

Cottage or pair of cottages, one half used as store. Probably C17 or early
C18 with late C19 and C20 alterations. Painted slate rubble. Thatched roof
with hipped right hand end and gabled left hand end abutting rear of chapel.
The rear pitch of roof is clad in corrugated asbestos. Central axial stack
with tapered rendered shaft with slate weathering and louvred yellow clay
pots.
Plan: Original plan is uncertain but probably a 2 or 3 room plan with a
central axial stack. The lower unheated room to the right has a large
vehicular doorway at the front. The higher left hand room has a projecting
2-storey bay and a C20 porch in the right hand angle to what must be a later
inserted doorway.
Extension: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical south front. Circa late C19 2 and 3-
light casements with glazing bars. At the left end of the front a 2-storey
projecting bay with a C20 concrete open porch in its right hand angle and a
C20 glazed door above to a balcony with C20 wooden balustrade. The glazed
and panelled door outside the porch is circa late C19. To right of front a
large vehicular entrance with a concrete lintel and to its right 2 small
blocked windows.
Rear elevation inaccessible but there appear to be no additions.
Interior: Only the lower right hand end was seen; this is open to the roof
which seems to have renewed timbers. The roof structure should be
original.
