CHULMLEIGH LEIGH ROAD, Chulmleigh SS 6814- 6914 7/82 Brayleys and Glen Haven 3.10.75 (Glen Haven) GV II 2 adjoining cottages, probably originally a single tenement. Early to mid C17 with later alterations. Painted rendered stone rubble and cob. Thatch roof with plain ridge and gable ends. Hipped thatch roof to short rear wing at right end. Brick stack at right end, and 2 rear lateral stacks, that towards the left end of stone rubble with tapered cap, that to right has brick shaft. Plan: left-hand cottage (Brayleys) has room to each side of central staircase. The left-hand room is heated by the rear lateral stone rubble stack, the right-hand room by a fireplace across the rear right-hand corner. This shares the brick stack with a corresponding fireplace (now blocked) to the right-hand cottage which therefore at one stage was of 2 rooms but now consists of direct entry into single large room heated by the gable end fireplace, with short kitchen wing to rear right end. Internal alterations and subdivision have obscured the original plan, but if the lateral brick stack replaces one of stone rubble it may conceivably have conformed to a 3 room and cross-passage plan, with lower end to left of former passage and hall to right heated by rear lateral stacks and inner room at right end heated by gable end stack. The short-rear kitchen wing at right end was probably added in early C19 and extended in late C20 and there is an early C20 2-storey outshut to rear of Brayleys at left end. Exterior: 2 storeys. 4 window range C19 fenestraton largely intact, all 3-light casements, 2 and 3 panes per light. C20 door to Brayleys, 4 panelled door, the upper 2 panels glazed to Glen Haven. Interior: 2 chamfered cross ceiling beams to Glen Haven with prism and scroll stops. Chamfered fireplace lintel with deep recess to left, possibly originally a smoking chamber. Brayleys has a deep chamfered cross ceiling beam to each room, and scroll- stopped chamfered fireplace lintel to left-hand room. Roof: not accessible but boxed in feet of straight principals suggest C17 roof structure largely intact.
