HATHERLEIGH BRIDGE STREET (east side), SS 5404 Hatherleigh 11/26 Nos. 13 and 15 - GV II

Pair of cottages originally one house. Early-mid C17 but possibly with earlier origins, altered probably in C19. Rendered cob and rubble walls. Thatch roof gabled to left hipped to right. Axial brick stack and one at left-hand end. Plan has been considerably altered and now consists of 1 heated room with small rear wing to No. 13 to left and 2 rooms to No. 15, the right-hand room heated by an axial stack. It seems evident that originally it was one house, which, if it followed the characteristic plan of Hatherleigh houses would have had a central wide passageway between 2 rooms. This could have been converted to a room when the building was subdivided and incorporated into No.15. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front of circa mid C20 3-light casements, later C20 on ground floor to left. No. 13 has C20 part-glazed door to left of centre and No. 15 has C19 4-panelled door to right of centre. Interior of No.15 has chamfered unstopped cross beam. No. 13 has chamfered and ogee stopped cross beam. Fireplace with slightly cambered ovolo moulded wooden lintel resting on curved corbels. Its first floor room has an ornamental plaster overmantle above a C19 chimneypiece. This is probably aontemporarywith the fireplace below - circa mid C17 - and has a central shield on a strapwork design with an angel's head at the top. A simple moulded cornice runs round the walls of this room and the feet of straight principals which extend slightly down the walls. The rear wing has straight principals with trenched purlins and halved collar. The plain exterior of this building conceals the existence of some surprisingly high quality interior features.
