1015/17/137 NETHERWITTON

(Formerly listed as:

Cottage, late C17 remodelled early C19.

MATERIALS: The main south elevation is composed of coursed sandstone and the other walls are rubble sandstone with a slate roof.

PLAN: Rectangular, two roomed cottage.

EXTERIOR: A single-storey building under a hipped roof with a single tall corniced ridge stack. There are six bays with a stable door occupying bay four. Windows are two-light mullions containing small casements, with that in bay 5 set within an older and blocked door opening. All openings have hoodmoulds. The right and left returns are plain, and the rear elevation has a single window at one end and two blocked door openings.

INTERIOR: There are two unequal sized rooms with a boarded door linking the two and a large, blocked stone and brick fireplace within the larger of the two rooms; the latter is open to the roof.

HISTORY: This cottage forms part of a group of late C17 and C18 buildings forming a small stable yard associated with Netherwitton Hall. The cottage is first depicted on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map of 1865 but it is unnamed on this and all subsequent editions. The original building probably functioned as a domestic estate building, possibly a washroom/scullery, before its early C19 conversion to a cottage or lodge house.

REASONS FOR DESIGNATION: This later C17 house, remodelled in the early C19, is designated at Grade II for the following principal reasons:

* It is a vernacular building dating from before 1840 which retains significant early fabric
* Its early C19 remodelling has resulted in an attractive, evolved, building with architectural detailing to the exterior
* It has Group Value with the wider grouping of estate buildings including the Grade I listed Netherwitton Hall
