SX8750 BAYARDS COVE 673-1/6/35 (West side) 14/09/49 Nos.9 AND 10 The Cobbles


House, possibly built as a pair of houses. Early or mid C17, some mid C19 and C20 modernisation. Mixed construction; side and back wall of plastered stone rubble and front wall is plastered timber-framing; left end and rear lateral stone rubble stacks with C19 and C20 brick chimneyshafts and some old pots; slate roof. PLAN: C17 right-angle plan with 2 parallel ranges; 2 houses by C19. EXTERIOR: 2-window front is mid C19 superficially but is structurally C17 with side walls corbelled out to carry second-floor jetty. Each former ground-floor room has a doorway to right, both now containing C20 part-glazed doors. All windows, including front ones of first-floor canted bays, are horned 4-pane sashes. Plastered front is lightly blocked out as ashlar and each end are stucco quoins, alternate blocks with vermiculated rustication. Double-gabled roof with shaped bargeboards and a terracotta finial on each apex. Rear includes at least one original C17 oak window frame with ovolo-moulded mullion. INTERIOR: Although largely the result of C19 and C20 modernisations, enough C17 fabric revealed to suggest that the original structure is well-preserved. Main beams have plain chamfers, the axial beam over the ground-floor room shows no evidence for an original partition, but axial partitions on upper floors are probably C17. Fireplaces of the left stack; ground-floor one (re)built in C20 and first-floor one has a C20 Windsor chimneypiece. Right rear first-floor fireplace is original; stone rubble with chamfered and step-stopped oak lintel, it is now partly blocked to accommodate a C19 cast-iron grate. Newel stair rises from first to second floor round a timber post in a stone alcove. On the top floor only the undersides of relatively slender truss principals are exposed; it is not possible to determine whether these are C17 or C19.
