9/191 Cote House
Farmhouse, formerly bastle house. Late C16 or early C17. Large blocks of
squared red sandstone to walls, covered with cement rendering at front, green
slate roof, rendered brick chimney stacks. 2 storeys, 4 bays with single
storeyed extension, built up the slope to the west, but under the same roof:
not a typical bastle house. Extremely thick walls, rendered to mask
alterations, make it difficult to interpret, but basically as built with C18 and
C19 window openings and C19 roof. East gable to river, shows small original
windows, now filled, rebuilt upper wall, gable coped with kneeler. Width
increased to rear by extension with roof carried over. Doorways between rear
extension and original building and between single storeyed extension, probably
are original. Windows and doors all C20: single storey extension is
whitewashed and internally the roof is carried on three trusses supported by
stone corbels, one with tie beam and king post, two with cambered collar beams.
Building may have been comparable with The Stonehouse in Naworth East Park.
See, R.C.H.M., Shielings & Bastles, 1970. N.B. The compass bearings given by
the R.C.H.M. are wrong: for their east read north and south read east.
