1/306 Gate Cottage and Gate House


2 cottages, formerly a farmhouse. Late C16/early C17, some C19 and C20 modernisation. Timber-framed. The ground floor level is underbuilt with brick, painted in Gate Cottage, Gate House front is probably C17 English bond red brick with many burnt headers giving a banded appearance and including some C20 brick patching and east end is mostly C20 brick. First floor level is timber-framed and clad with peg-tile. Brick stack and chimneyshaft; peg- tile roof.

Plan: The building faces south and is set back from the road. Originally it was a 3-room lobby entrance plan farmhouse. The right (east) end was the unheated service end room. An axial stack between the other 2 rooms serve back-to-back fireplaces but without an internal inspection it is not possible to. determine which was the original parlour and kitchen. Now the house is divided into 2 cottages with a new partition built across the centre room as the party wall. Original lobby entrance is now blocked. Gate Cottage occupies the left (west) part and Gate House the right (east) part. 2 storeys with attics in the roofspace and secondary outshots to rear.

Exterior: Irregular 3-window front of timber casement windows containing rectangular panes of leaded glass. One or two may be old but most are C20 replacements. Gate House front doorway is right of centre and contains a C19 top-glazed 6-panel door. Gate Cottage has a C20 door in the outshot towards the back of the left end wall. Main roof is gable-ended.

Interior: Not available for inspection at the time of this survey but late C16/early C17 carpentry is suspected.
