ALTARNUN WEST CARNE SX 28 SW 4/128 Cottage at Carne Manor - II

Small cottage, original purpose uncertain although it is possible that it may originally have been a tower. Circa early C17. Granite rubble with granite dressings. Rag slate roof with hipped ends. Rear lateral stone rubble stack with moulded granite cap. Plan: One-room plan on ground and first floor, heated by a rear-lateral stack. The house is built down the slope with the ground falling to rear; the entrance is therefore at a higher level than the ground floor room. The entrance is on front left through a round turret which acts as a 2 storey porch containing steps leading down into the ground floor room and a flight of winder steps leading up to the first floor room. It is possible that this round turret is a truncated stair turret possibly to a truncated tower; this one-room plan building being originally a tower. Exterior: Two storeys. Asymmetrical front elevation with porch/stair turret on left. The entrance has a dressed granite rounded arch which is moulded to form an open segmental pediment with dressed granite chamfered jambs. There is a small 1- light window with chamfered segmental granite arch which lights the stair within and a 2-light mullion window on first floor. The house has a 3-light granite mullion window on ground floor and 2-light granite mullion window on first forming a half dormer with shallow raking roof. There are similar windows in the right hand side elevation. C20 garages of stone rubble to rear and on left-hand side. Interior: Granite ashlar winder stair within porch leading up to first floor room and short flight of steps down into ground floor room. The latter is heated by a large fireplace with chamfered granite lintel and jambs. The floor joists have been replaced in the circa C19.
