SK 7087 CHAGFORD SOUTHCOMBE STREET, Chagford
6/159 Orchard Cottage, Orchard Terrace
House and shop, former bakery. C17, maybe earlier core refurbished in the C19.
Plastered granite stone rubble; granite stacks, one with a granite ashlar chimney
shaft; slate roof (formerly thatch).
Plan and development: 3-room plan house built end onto the street, facing south-east,
and built down a slope. The uphill left end room has a massive projecting end
kitchen stack. Below this is an entrance hall and stair. Disused axial stack
between the other 2 rooms served the central room. The end room is wider than the
rest of the building and divided into two by an axial wall. Small shop added at
right angles along Southcombe Street to rear of the kitchen/bakery. Originally it
seems this house and adjoining No 5 Southcombe Street (q.v) formed part of the same
property and Orchard Cottage was a C17 service crosswing. 2 storeys.
Exterior: irregular 4-window front of late C19 and C20 casements with glazing bars.
The front doorway is left of centre and contains a C19 6-pane door behind a C20
gabled and shingle-roofed porch. Roof is gable-ended. The Southcombe Street end has
the large plastered kitchen/bakery stack. The shop alongside has a C20 door and
Interior shows mostly the result of C19 and C20 modernisations. The only C17 feature
exposed is the kitchen/bakery stack. The large ground floor fireplace is built of
granite with an irregular soffit-chamfered oak lintel and it includes a massive oven
in the back. The chamber above has a granite ashlar fireplace. The lintel is
soffit-chamfered with scroll stops (most unusual - this is a timber lintel finish).
Only this end of the roof was inspected and it was C17; large scantling A-frame
trusses with curving feet and pegged lap-jointed collars with dovetail halvings.
