Details

In the entry for the following:- ST OO NE KENTISBEARE FORE STREET 8/95 Kentisbeare Larkrise II The address and description shall be amended to read:-

ST OO NE KENTISBEARE FORE STREET 8/95 Kentisbeare Larkrise and Folly 15/04/1987 Cottage II House. Mid C17 with later additions and alterations. Roughcast cob on stone footings; gable end thatched roof. Although the house is now a 3-cell structure running parallel to the street with a rear wing, it was originally a symmetrical 2-room plan house with a narrow central through-passage and with what were probably farmbuildings attached at right angles to the left-hand end, set end-on to the street; the hipped roof of this latter range is still visible internally; at some point, probably in the C18 the farmbuilding range was converted into living accommodation, comprising a room (with chamber above) and rear wing, both heated by a rear stack. The wall between the original range and this added room is of cob. External rear lateral stacks heat each of the other rooms. One now dismantled. Stacks of cob, with brick shafts. 2 storeys. Exterior Front: Regular 5 window range; the 3 to the right (two 3-light casement windows flanking a 2-light window above the porch), in tall embrasures, together with those to each side of the porch, that to the right with saddle bars and old latches, indicate the dimensions of the original symmetrical house. All 4 ground floor windows with leaded panes. Porch, C19, open timber work and wavy bargeboarding. C20 casement windows. The rear wing (Folly Cottage) emended further, probably in the C19, its roof ridge lower than the main house with C19 fenestration, heated by an end stack. Interior: middle and right-hand end rooms with reduced fireplaces and pretty Victorian chimney pieces; left hand room with exposed fireplace, largely rebuilt to the front, but with roughly chamfered lintel to the fireplace serving the wing. Ceiling beams boxed. Largely mid to late C19 joinery, although the turned newels of the main stairs could be earlier, possibly even C18. Roof: C17, morticed and pegged straight principals, the trusses to the wing look rather later, although the early hip-structure survives. Folly Cottage noted as having exposed ceiling and wall timbers, and open fireplace with wood bressummer.
