NYMET ROWLAND SS 70 NW 2/51 Nymet Cottage - - II

Cottage. C17 and C18 with circa 1980 modernisation and extensions. Plastered cob on rubble footings; cob stack topped with C20 brick; thatch roof except kitchen outshot with concrete tile roof. L-shaped building. The main range facing east onto the road has 2 rooms with an axial stack between the 2 serving the larger left (southern) room. The heated room is C17 and the unheated right room may be contemporary or an C18 addition. The rear block at right angles behind the unheated room and the kitchen outshot in the angle of the blocks are both circa 1980. The stairs are circa 1980 and the site of the originals is not known. 2 storeys. The front has 2 ground floor windows only and both are circa 1980 casements with glazing bars. The left one is probably blocking the original door. The doorway is now on the right (northern) end. The roof is half-hipped each end. All other windows are circa 1980 casements with glazing bars. Interior was modernised circa 1980 but the integrity of the older part is preserved. The main heated room crossbeam has a roughly-finished soffit chamfer but the joists have been replaced. The large fireplace is built of stone rubble and its oak lintel is soffit-chamfered with scroll stops. The oven was relined in late C19 and given a cast iron door. Only that part of the roof over the unheated room is accessible and includes an A-frame truss with pegged lap-jointed collar, either C17 or C18. Over the heated room the feet of 2 A-frame trusses can be seen and are probably C17.
