OTTERTON THE GREEN, Otterton SY 0885 7/175 No. 17, Millside Cottage (formerly listed as Nos. 1 and 2) 11.11.52 GV II House, formerly 2 cottages. Late C18-early C19, thoroughly renovated circa 1975. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings; stone rubble or brick stacks topped with C19 brick, one stack with Rolle estate chimney pots; thatch roof, pantile to outshots. 3-room plan cottage facing north onto the Green and at the west end of a row of contemporary cottages. The right (western) end room is an addition. The centre room has an axial (former end) stack to right and the left room has an end stack in the party wall shared with the adjoining cottage, No. 15 (q.v.). 2-storey outshots to rear of centre and left rooms. Although these have been rebuilt there was originally a kitchen outshot to rear of the left room served by a stack backing onto the main block. At some time (probably when the third front room was added) the house was divided into 2. One of these cottages occupied the left room and kitchen outshot, the other occupied the other 2 front rooms. Now they have been reunited to a single house. 2 storeys. The original part has a symmetrical 3-window front of C19 casements, all with rectangular panes of leaded glass except the central first floor casement which has glazing bars. Central doorway with C19 4-panel door and monopitch hood an shaped brackets. Another identical door and hood immediately to right and beyond that another C19 casement with leaded glass. There is a painted window on the first floor. Roof is gable-ended to right and continuous with the roof of No. 15 to left. Interior is mostly the result of the circa 1975 modernisation. The fireplaces are blocked and the first floor is now carried on boxed in RSJs. Roof not inspected. Millside Cottage is one of an attractive row of cottages near the Church of St Michael (q.v.) and Otterton Mill (q.v.). These cottages are an unusual mixture of vernacular cob and thatch with more polite C19 detail on the doorways and some of the windows.
