TQ 54 NE
5/134 Quince Cottage

House, formerly 2 cottages. Probably late C18/early C19, substantial internal
alterations of the late C20 and coeval additions at the right (east end) and
rear. Flemish bond brick to the ground floor, first floor framed construction
clad with weatherboarding; slate roof; brick stacks.

Plan and Development: South-facing. The original arrangement was a pair of
small mirror plan 2-cell cottages, each with a principal room at the front
heated from fireplaces in the central axial stack with narrow rear service
rooms and stairs in the outer rear corners. The original entrances are said
to have been on the rear (north) elevation, in the centre (information from
owner). All the internal partitions have been removed, a 1-room plan
extension has been added at the right (east) end, re-using old materials. The
rear has also been extended.

Exterior: 2 storeys. Roof gabled at ends. Asymmetrical 3:1 window front
(south) elevation, the right hand window to the C20 addition. C20 plank front
door to right of centre with a lean-to porch with curly bargeboards. 4 first
floor 1- and 2-light C20 timber casements; C20 square bay window to ground
floor left.

Interior: Carpentry extensively renewed in the C20.

Roof: Not inspected.

In spite of the alterations this is one of a roadside group and is included
for group value.
