FENITON SY 19 NW 7/71 Thorn Cottage - GV II

House. Early - mid C19, some mid - late C19 alterations. Plastered brick and local stone rubble; brick stacks with C19 brick chimneyshafts; slate roof.

Plan: double depth plan house facing south-west with a front and back room heated by an end stack either side of a central entrance hall and rear staircase. House is 2 storeys. Since the left (north-west) end is terraced into the hillslope it maybe that it was originally 2 storeys with a basement like the adjoining contemporary house, Court Barton (q.v). If so it was altered in the mid - late C19.

Exterior: symmetrical 3-window front wholly C19 features, although maybe 2 phases.

The outer bays have 16-pane sashes, those on the ground floor are not as tall as the others. The second floor central window is a narrow 12-pane sash, the window below is a 16-pane sash (is this blocking the original doorway?) and below that one is the central doorway which contains a mid - late C19 part-glazed 6-panel door with a contemporary flat hood on shaped timber brackets. Plain eaves although there is a C19 cast iron guttter with lions head mask joints. The roof is gable-ended to right and to left it runs continuously over adjoining Court Barton (q.v).

Interior: was not inspected but C19 joinery and other detail is suspected.

Feniton is an attractive little village containing a good group of listed buildings.
