SY 18 NE BRANSCOMBE 7/4 Cotte Barton -

- II

Farmhouse. Early-mid C17, refurbished in the late C18-early C19 and modernised circa 1960. White-washed local stone rubble with dressed Beerstone quoins; stone rubble stacks topped with C20 brick; thatch roof. Plan: originally a 3-room -and-through passage plan house facing north. However this is not the traditional late medieval layout. At the right (west) end is the former kitchen with rear lateral stack on the lower side of the passage. On the upper side of the passage there was a small central service room (probably a dairy) with a corridor running behind from the passage to a parlour at the left (east) end. This parlour has an axial stack backing onto the service room. In the C20 both passage partitions were removed and a new stair built into the former service room. Also a new service outshot containing the present kitchen was added behind the original kitchen. House is 2 storeys. Exterior: irregular 3-window front of C19 and C20 casements with glazing bars, the first floor ones with low thatch eyebrows over. The passage front doorway is right of centre and contains a C20 plank door behind a contemporary thatch-roofed porch. Similar porch to a doorway inserted at the left end which contains a C20 French window. Roof is half-hipped both ends. Interior: the kitchen fireplace is plastered stone with a roughly chamfered oak lintel. Any oven is blocked. The crossbeam here has deep chamfers with scroll stops. The parlour fireplace is Beerstone ashlar with neatly chamfered oak lintel. This fireplace does have an oven but it is so much neater than the other that this is still regarded as the parlour. The crossbeam here has deep chamfers with step stops. The joinery detail throughout the house is C20 and the roof is late C18- early C19, a series of A-frame with pegged and spiked lap-jointed collars and X- apexes.
