3/59 Chilbolton Cottage
Lilac Cottage and
Irregular group of cottages, now 2 dwellings. C17, with C18 alterations
and additions, and a taller reconstruction in the centre of circa 1900.
Painted walls of plaster and brick, with some exposure of original timber-
frame: thatch roof with gables, 1/2-hips, inset and eyebrow dormers, catslides,
forming an uneven skyline but linking the several structures. 1 storey and
attic, irregular fenestration; the west elevation of Lilac has 2 storeys,
2 windows. The form of the older parts is quite irregular, but the bold
centrepiece exaggerates the traditional features, having a gable with a
wide ground floor window, set back at the north side as a ½-splayed bay
beneath a jetted corner on a timber bracket, and a massive timber-framed
projecting 2-storeyed porch with overhanging boarded 1st floor, having an
oriel beneath a further overhanging gable. The whole now appears as a
rambling group, prominent at the road junction, opposite the churchyard.
