11/59 - No 50 Bell House


House. Late C16 or early C17, remodelled early C19. Solid, roughcast walls.

Slated roof with clay ridge-tiles, hipped at left-hand end. Small rendered chimneystack in left-hand gable-wall. On ridge near the right-hand end a late C16 or C17 granite ashlar stack with tapered top. Position of stack in relation to an early door suggests that this may have been a house of traditional 3-room and cross- passage plan with hall stack backing on to the passage; lower end (now No. 52) rebuilt as a separate house. 2 storeys. 3-window front. At right-hand end of ground storey an early C19 glazed door with 12 panes in the upper part. Wood door- frame is late C16 or early C17, ovolo-moulded with cranked head and urn-stops. To left of doorway in ground storey a 3-light wood casement window with 2 panes per light. At left-hand end a large fixed sash of 15 panes. In second storey the 2 left-hand windows are 6-paned wood sashes. The right-hand window is a small 2-light wood casement with 2 panes per sash. Left-hand gable-wall, the present entrance front, is 2 windows wide. Doorway to right has 4 panels, the 2 lower panels flush, and a moulded brass knocker. To left of it is a single-storeyed canted bay window with a slated pent roof. In second storey are 2 wooden 6-paned sash windows. The garden path outside this front has an old cobbled surface. Interior not inspected.
