OTTERTON FORE STREET (south side) Otterton SY 0885 7/169 Brook House GV II House, originally 2 houses. Late C18 - early C19. Plastered stone rubble and brick with some cob in places; brick outshots with slate roof.

It appears that this was originally a pair of contemporary 2-room plan cottages facing onto Fore Street to the north. Each has a central staircase and a single rear lateral stack. Continuous outshots across rear are probably secondary. Main block is 2 storeys.

Irregular 4-window front, but looks as though 2 first floor windows have been blocked to upset the original symmetrical arrangement. The left (eastern) former cottage still has the original 3-window arrangement around a central doorway. The doorway contains a later C18 - early C19 6-panel door, contemporary 12-pane sash directly above and both are flanked by 16-pane sashes. The right (western) cottage was apparently once the same but 2 of its first floor windows are gone. The right end corner is a broad curve from Fore Street to Maunders Hill. Plain deep eaves.

Roof abuts adjoining property to left and is hipped to right.

Interior not inspected.

Brook house is one of a number of attractive listed buildings along Otterton Fore Street.
