5/9 Paradise



Cottage. Late C17 - early C18 with mid-C19 and C20 alterations and
extensions. Rubble, timber-frame, plaster panels, stone slate roof, brick
end stacks and projecting oven to east. One storey and attic, 2 bays.
South elevation is cased in rubble and has 2 evenly placed C20 casements
to ground floor and gabled dormers, entrance via C20 planked door between
casements to right of bays' division. Frame: irregular; survives externally
only on north side and west end, 3 panels high from rubble base to wall-
plate. Interior: much of the timber-framing including the division between
the two bays seems to be re-used. To the west and north is an unfinished
mid-C20 timber-framed extension of good quality containing a contemporary
rubble fireplace surround. The building has additional interest because
of the disciplined restoration which it has undergone and because the source
of much of the material is reputedly The Dingle (RCHM Vol I), an L-plan
farmhouse probably C16 with C17 extensions which until its demolition after
1931 stood about70 yards to the north.
