ST49NW SOMERTON CP COW SQUARE (North side)
House, formerly detached. Apparently 1770. Local stone cut and squared, with Ham stone dressings; double Roman clay
tile roof behind parapet between coped gables; brick end chimney stacks. Two storeys, 7 bays. Sash windows of 12 panes
in architraved surrounds, that to centre upper bay having segmental arched head; continuous label over ground floor
windows and central open stone portico, which has Doric columns on short plinths carrying moulded flat stone hood;
simple lead rainwater downpipes and stackheads to each side, and simple moulding to plain parapet. VCH states "said to
have been built in 1770" - this could well be a re-modelling. Interior not seen. (VCH, Volume III, 1974).
