BISHOPSTEIGNTON FORE STREET (north side), SX 9073-9173 Bishopsteignton 13/50 The Cottage (formerly listed as The Cottage, 23.8.55 with its gateway)


House. Circa early C18 with a mid C19 addition or rebuilding at the left (west) end. Colourwashed rendered stone, the mid C19 addition stuccoed and blocked out ; hipped slate roofs, the mid C19 roof behind a parapet ; rear right lateral stack to C18 block, stack at junction between C18 and C19 blocks, further stack to rear of C19 block. Plan: Not entirely clear when inspected (1987) but the C18 house at the right (east) end is 2 rooms wide with a lean-to at the right end and double depth to the left, present entrance central to this block but directly into the left hand room. The mid C19 addition appears to have provided one large room at the left end but there is additional accommodation to the rear, the ground floor of this converted to garages. Exterior: 2 storeys, the C18 block to the right with a lower roofline and a symmetrical 3-bay front, 1 window mid C19 addition at left end. The C18 block has a recessed panelled central front door with 2-storey bows to left and right, each bow glazed with a 12-pane sash in the centre and 4-pane sashes in the outer lights, C18 12-pane boxed sash above front door. An 8-bay verandah on posts (glazing missing at time of survey, 1987) extends across the front with a round-headed niche in the solid right end wall with a French window with glazing bars into the lean-to. The C19 block at the left end has a platband and parapet with cornice, ground floor French window with glazing bars and a first floor round-headed sash with glazing bars and sliding shutters, similar sash on left return first floor and one ground floor sash ; 12-pane sashes above C20 garage doors. Interior: Not fully inspected but the C18 block is rather altered internally : wall plaster has been removed round the fireplace of the right hand room exposing a high cambered timber lintel ; modest stick baluster stair with ramped handrail to rear of left hand room. C19 marble chimneypiece to mid C19 block. The residence of a sequence of Army and Naval Officers in the C19. Said to be illustrated in 'Croydens' Guide" of 1817 (Cleland). An attractive 2 phase house. W.D. Cleland (ed.) Bishopsteignton, South Devon, A Short History and Guide (1930).
