GV II

Pair of cottages, former farmhouse. Second half of C17 with various later alterations. Front plastered, rest is local stone rubble: older stacks with stone chimneyshafts raised in brick; thatch roof. PLAN: The main block faces south-east, end onto the road with SW end terraced into the hill slope. Present layout derives from subdivision to cottages but probable origins as 3-room-and-cross-passage plan. Lower (NE) room with projecting gable end stack. Other side of passage is hall with projecting rear lateral stack, and at upper end small inner room now converted to stair hall. Secondary 1-room plan rear blocks project to rear of each end, both with end stacks. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys. Plastered front has 3-window front of timber casements with glazing bars, the first-floor windows rising into the thatch eaves. The 2 front doorways both contain C20 plank doors in plain solid timber frames. Roof is gable-ended to right and hipped to left. Right end stack with stone mounting block attached. C20 brick addition on south-west side wall and ground floor window to left of it possibly late C17-early C18 timber flat-faced mullion casement. North east rear block has hipped roof, and south-west rear block has gable-ended roof. INTERIOR: Plain carpentry detail where exposed including plain timber lintels to fireplaces. Lower side of passage is a late C17 plank-and-muntin screen with scratch-moulded muntins and a contemporary 3-fielded panel door. The bases of relatively slender principals show on first floor. Large oven projecting to hall stack now inside a rear lean-to. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: At south-east end of front wall there is the stone housing of a butterwell. Lanscombe Cottages form part of a group of exceptionally attractive group of listed buildings in an unspoilt village and adjoining Cockington Park.
