Cottage. Probably late C18 to early C19. Timber-frame with brick and
plaster infill, stack at junction of two ranges and thatched roofs.
L-plan consisting of two two-bay ranges, one aligned north-west/south-
east facing the road, and the other returning from the north-west end
with stone rear external stack in the angle. South-west elevation (to
road): two-storey gable front to left has two late C19 casements on the
ground floor, angle struts to beam corresponding with first-floor level
and an inclined tie-beam linking the asymmetrical eaves; right hand part
has one storey and attic with a wrought iron mid-C19 casement beneath a
segmentally-headed casement in a thatched eyebrow and a mid-C20 door
immediately to the right under a thatched canopy; roof half-hipped to
right hand side. south-east elevation: early C19 glazing-bar sash to
first floor of left two-storey range above a canted late C19 bay window
with six panes to each facet; the gable front to the right has a c1900
casement under the half-hipped apex and another late C19 canted bay
window to the ground floor. Lean-to early C20 extension with hipped tiled
roof to rear envelopes the rear stack beneath exposed rear gables of the
two ranges. Frame is of thin uneven scantling, three panels high in the
projecting range and two in the other range. A most unusually planned
and detailed cottage which retains its fenestration, largely unaltered
in this century, and which has the traits of a prestigious timber-framed
farmhouse but executed in miniature and enhanced by thatched roofs.
