SY 08 NE NEWTON POPPLEFORD EXETER ROAD HARPFORD Newton Poppleford 5/52 Newlands Cottage -


Cottage. Mid C17, circa 1930 extension and thoroughly modernised circa 1960. Main block is plastered cob on stone rubble footings; stone rubble stack with plastered C20 brick top; thatch roof; circa 1930 extension is plastered brick with thatch roof. The original house fronting onto the road to the south-west had a 2-room plan but now the 2 rooms have been knocked together. It has a projecting left (north-west) end stack. The circa 1930 2-room extension was built at right angles adjoining the rear right corner of the main block, and a connecting corridor built along the back of the main block. Rear block has lateral stack on inner side. Both blocks are 2 storeys. Regular, nearly symmetrical, 3-window front of C19 and C20 casements with glazing bars. The central ground floor window is blocking the original front door. The first floor windows have thatch eyebrows over. Roof is hipped to right and gable- ended to left. The left end stack has weathered offsets and the oven projection has been removed to create a small window framed by the former oven doorway. The C20 block is gable-ended and the main door is now in the front gable end protected by a porch in the angle of the 2 wings with a lean-to thatch roof on a rustic post. Interior of main block much rearranged in C20. The internal partitions have been removed. There are no main beams and the first floor may always have been carried on joists only although most have been replaced. The fireplace is C17; it has brick sides and its oak lintel is soffit-chamfered with a scroll stop on 1 side only. Roof is not accessible but the feet of the principals show suggesting that the original C17 roof structure survives. According to the owners the deeds survive back to 1650 which could well be the date of erection of the present main block.
