5/19 Elm Tree Cottage

- II

A pair of cottages, now one house. Early C18, extended at rear in 1970 and
1980. 1½ storeys, 6 bays. Timber-framed and rendered, with clay pantiled
roofs. Central internal chimney-stack with plain red brick shaft. 4 mid-C20
casement windows and 2 gabled dormers to front elevation. Entry into part of
new extension at rear. Framing exposed inside: thin studs bisected by primary
braces, joists set on edge. Each cottage had a typical layout: a 2-bay living
room with an adjacent one-bay walk-in larder and a corner stair. Above, a main
bedroom and landing bedroom. The chimney-stack had 2 back-to-back hearths on
the ground storey, with timber lintels over and bake ovens to one side. The
original stairs and partitions on the ground storey have been removed.
