Details

HOLCOMBE ROGUS FORE STREET, Holcombe Rogus ST 01 NE 5/107 Dower house including front area - railings GV II House. Early C19, probably earlier core. Plastered stone rubble, parts might be cob; stone rubble stacks topped with C19 brick; slate roof, maybe thatch once. Plan: long building facing onto Fore Street to the north-east. It has a 4-room plan, 2 either side of the entrance hall which contains the main stair. The right end room is an unheated service room and has now been converted to a garage although the chamber above has a gable-end stack. The room right of centre has an axial stack backing onto the garage. The room left of centre has a rear lateral stack and the left end room has a gable-end stack. 1-room plan service block projects at rignt angles to rear left of centre. It is easy to interpret the layout as that of a C16 hall house but no carpentry shows to prove such an hypothesis. House is 2 storeys. Exterior: apart from a tiny window over the C20 garage doors the regular 3-window front is concentrated at the left end; ground floor C19 casements containing rectangular panes of leaded glass and first floor 16-pane sashes. The front doorway contains a C19 6-panel door and contemporary flat hood on shaped timber brackets. The roof is gable-ended. The rear wall right (north-west) of the rear block contains tall 12-pane sashes and the stair is lit by a round-headed sash containing Y-tracery top glazing bars. Interior: shows nothing earlier than the C19 joinery detail. Nevertheless no carpentry is exposed. The first floor rooms have coved plaster ceilings and the roofspace is inaccessible. Earlier work may be hidden by C19 plaster. A narrow strip of front garden is fenced by mid C19 cast iron railings with ornate spear heads and set into low stone rubble footings. The gate is similar. The Dower House is one of a group of attractive listed buildings in the centre of Holcombe Rogus Village.
