CHAGFORD LOWER STREET, (west side), SX 7087 Chagford 6/132 No 8 -

GV II

2 cottages. Once a single house. Early C16 with major late C16 and C17 improvements, renovated and sub-divided circa 1980. Plastered granite; granite stack with granite ashlar chimney shaft; slate roof (formerly thatch). Plan and development: two 1-room plan cottages built along the road facing south- east. The left cottage actually occupies the former hall and the right one the passage and service end room of a C16 3-room-and-through passage plan house. (The former inner room has been divided off and rebuilt completely). The hall has a large stack backing onto the former passage with a newel stair rising alongside. Both cottages share a common entrance through a lobby at the front of the passage. Unfortunately internal inspection was not available at the time of this survey and therefore the historic development of the house cannot be outlined here although it seems clear that the hall at least was open to the roof in the C16. Both are 2 storeys with secondary service outshots to rear. Exterior: irregular 3-window front of C19 and C20 casements with glazing bars. Nearly central front passage doorway contains an old plank door with strap hinges in a solid but plain oak doorframe. Above it and a little to left is a tiny stair light. The roof runs parallel with the street between the adjoining buildings. Interior was not available for inspection at the time of this survey and what little that could be seen suggests a well-preserved house containing C16 and C17 features. To the front of the hall stack in the passage there is a short section of a probably C16 oak plank-and-muntin screen which contains the remains of a shoulder-headed doorway. The lower side of the passage is also lined by an oak plank-and-muntin screen.
