THE GARDENS (east side)

(Formerly listed as Zennor)


Shown on OS Map as The Bungalow. Cottage. C17 with mid C19 alterations. C17 rear
wall of rendered cob on stone plinth; other walls rebuilt in mid C19 colourwashed
brick; gabled thatch roof. 3-unit plan: the C17 house had a hall to the left of
a lofted inner room. One storey; 3-window range. Mid C19 plank door set in beaded
wood frame to centre. Two and 3-light casements with glazing bars, probably mid/late
C19. Mid C19 one-storey, one-bay service extension to left, of colourwashed brick
with gabled plain tile roof. Rear of cottage has small mid C19 one-light window
set in pegged frame and a mid/late C19 one-light window with glazing bars. Interior:
C19 partition to right of door has lower part of raised cruck to front, which is
not fully visible above; to right of this is another C19 partition set under a low
tie beam. Two bays to right have exposed through purlins and simple A-frame roof
construction above, with some old thatching spars and rafters made from branches.
The C17 fireplace could have been some form of smoke hood. A rare and interesting
survival of a one-storey peasant house, probably representing the survival of a
squatters house built on the edge of common land.
