THROWLEIGH SX 69 SE 1/212 Pair of disused cottages adjoining south-west end of Langston Farmhouse (north)

GV II

Pair of cottages, formerly one house. C17, probably divided into 2 cottages in C19. Whitewashed granite stone rubble employing relatively large blocks laid to rough courses and with shaped quoins; granite stack with granite ashlar chimney shaft; corrugated iron roof (formerly thatch). Plan: Originally a 2-room plan house facing south east built across the hillslope and terraced into it with central lobby entrance onto the side of an axial fireplace serving back-to-back fireplaces. The original stairs were probably housed in the turret which projects forward from the right front end. In the C19 it was divided into 2 1-room 1 plan cottages and the left room was given a new staircase. The right side may have been taken out of domestic use and converted to store rooms at that time or some time later. Both are now unoccupied and their first floors are used as haylofts, loaded from the rear terrace. 2 storeys with small ash house adjoining to left end rear. Exterior: Front now has only 1 window, unglazed and shuttered ground floor left. Original front door immediately right and right of it first a blocked window then a blocked doorway with a blocked first floor window over. A tiny blocked window in the stair turret. What joinery detail there is is C19. Roof is gable-ended. The left end wall is blind but the right end wall (facing onto Langston Farmhouse front garden) contains a C19 doorway containing a contemporary plank door and a first floor C17 oak 2-light with chamfered mullion. The rear wall has been much rebuilt in the C20 and each room has a doorway from the rear terrace. Interior contains plain carpentry detail. Both ground floor rooms have plain roughly-finished crossbeams and both have granite fireplaces with soffit-chamfered oak lintels and the right one has a side oven. Only the right room roof was inspected and it is a C20 replacement. This is an interesting building, a small cottage associated with Langston Farmhouse (north)(q.v) and forms part of a group of picturesque buildings, most of them farmbuildings but also including Langstone Farmhouse (south) (q.v).
