SX 98 SE LYMPSTONE EXMOUTH ROAD (west side), Lympstone 5/28 Crook's Corner and Olde Hollow - (formerly Nos. 1-5, Haynes Cottages) - II House, now 2 dwellings, formerly 5 cottages, but originally a single farmhouse. C15 or early C16, much altered and enlarged. Roughcast cob, and sandstone rubble, partially rendered; hipped and gabled-end pantiled roofs. Originally a 3-room, through passage plan house, the service end to the left of the passage. The hall and service end were open to the roof and there is evidence of smoke-blackening in both rooms. The inner room was always of 2 storeys, and served by a rear stair turret. Stacks and the first floor were probably inserted in the hall and service end in the late C16 or C17. The hall appears initially to have been heated by a front lateral stack, since demolished, for the central ceiling beam stops are set about a metre behind the front wall. In the late C18 or early C19 the main range was extended at both ends, the service end re-roofed re-using some sooted timbers, and a service end crosswing built which may have incorporated a formerly detached kitchen, note the large fireplace towards the rear of the cross-wing facing away from the main range of the house and heating a disproportionately small room. Some late-C19 extensions; another rear wing built in circa 1949. All stacks with brick shafts. 2 storeys. Front: 4-window range with early-C19 cross wing to left. First floor; three 16- pane hornless sash windows, and a horned sash window, 4 panes up, 8 down; 3 hornless sash windows of 12 or 16 panes and a 2-light casement window. The left- hand window bay is slightly recessed and probably marks the extension of the service end. Cross wing with a 16-pane hornless sash bow window to first floor. Left-hand elevation (the cross wing): largely C20 fenestration, but there are 3 C19 12-pane horizontal sliding sash windows, and a 2-light casement window. Rear completely refenestrated and altered in circa 1980. Interior: the medieval 1-bay hall is very small in area; the truss between the hall and service end with a 2-storeyed partition left open at the apex only. 1 screen to the passage survives concealed behind present internal rendering. Roof: 2 trusses, possibly jointed crucks, smoke blackened, that to upper end of hall to hall side only; trenched purlins, conventional morticed and pegged principals. 3 Hall ceiling beams, chamfered, 2 with hollow step stops with notch, one set placed well back to receive dismantled front lateral stack. Putative detached kitchen fireplace with chamfered lintel and run-out stops. Stairs (in rear stair turret) retain their original treads and risers concealed beneath present carpentry (information from occupier).
