SAMPFORD COURTENAY SS 60 SW 5/151 Middle Trecott GV II House, probably originally farmhouse. Likely to be approximately early C16 with early C17 alterations or early C17, C19 and C20 additions. Rendered cob walls. Thatch roof gabled to left end hipped to right. Axial granite ashlar stack offset from the ridge with a tapering cap. Plan: originally 3-room-and-through-passage plan with lower end to the right now reduced in height and partly rebuilt. Hall stack backs onto the passage but this and the hall ceiling may be insertions into an open hall which originally had a central hearth - this however cannot be proved without access to the roof space. C19 and C20 1 storey additions at rear. It is unclear when the lower end was partly demolished. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2 window front of 1- and 2-light mid-late C20 leaded pane casements. C20 gabled open-fronted porch towards right-hand end with C19 plank and glazed door behind to passage. Leanto against right-hand end and outshut along rear wall. Interior: hall has fireplace which has chamfered wooden lintel with diagonal-cut stops and roughly chamfered granite jambs. Cloam oven in right-hand side. Chamfered axial ceiling beam and 2 half beams with hollow step stops, joists have bead-moulding to edges. The back of the fireplace, facing the passage, is of granite ashlar. In the passage there are 2 re-used chamfered ceiling beams with square mortices in their soffits. To the rear of the stack is a section of plank and muntin screen with straight-cut stops. Roof: over the hall is a face-pegged jointed cruck with threaded purlins. There is no access to the roof space so evidence of smoke-blackening is not available.
