Deedas Cottage
including front
garden area wall to S


House. Circa early to mid C17 with circa C19 additions and C20
alterations. Rendered stone rubble. Asbestos slate hipped roof with
black-glazed ridge tiles. Rendered aerial stack (formerly at gable end)
towards right hand end with louvred yellow clay pot and projecting lateral
stack at rear with rendered shaft with weathered set-offs.
Plan: A 2 or 3-room and through passage plan, the lower end to the right
heated from a gable end stack, the hall has a lateral stack at the back.
The small room at the left end may be the inner room of the original house
and became the entrance hall in the C20 when a doorway was inserted at the
front and a staircase installed at the back in place of an earlier newel
staircase. The C20 alterations involved the removal of the partitions on
either side of the through passage whose front doorway was also blocked.
The outshut behind the higher end is probably a C19 addition restored in
the C20. The small unheated 1-room plan 2-storey addition at the lower
right hand end is also a C19 addition.
Exterior: storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window south front. 2 windows on
the first floor and 4 windows on the ground floor, all with C20 2-light
casements with glazing bars and slate sills. The original doorway at the
centre is now a window and the present doorway is at the left hand end; it
has a C17 plank door with moulded cover strips and is said to have come
from another house nearby; a large C20 open porch with a slate hipped
canopy on timber posts.
Rear: 3 C20 2-light casements on the first floor, a projecting lateral
stack to right of centre and a single storey lean-to outshut at the centre
and right.
Right hand east end has a symmetrical 3-window front with C20 casements
with glazing bars and slate sills.
Including wall enclosing small front garden area, probably C19, low slate
rubble wall with curved right hand end and C20 palings above.
Interior: The hall (formerly the central room) has a chamfered cross-beam
with straight-cut stops and a blocked rear lateral fireplace. The
fireplace at the lower left hand end has a C20 timber lintel. The roof has
roughly fashioned principals with lapped and pegged collars.
