Pixton cottage. Small house. Early to mid C17. Plastered cob walls. Gable ended thatched roof. Projecting rendered rubble stack at each gable end, right-hand one has dripcourse near the top, left-hand one has brick shaft. Plan: 2-room plan with central lobby entry in front of spiral stairs which may be original and lead out of right-hand room. Both rooms heated by gable end stack - right-hand one larger hall/kitchen has projecting window bay at the front. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 1-window front, 2 to ground floor, of early C20 small-paned 2-light casements. Projecting gabled bay to right of centre has a window on each floor. C20 part-glazed and panelled door to left of centre. At front of right-hand end is semi-circular oven projection with thatched roof. Late C19 or early C20 outshut against right-hand end. Interior: left-hand room has very heavy chamfered axial beam with run-out stops. Fireplace has chamfered wooden lintel although the opening is now blocked. First floor and roof-space inaccessible at time of survey and early roof timbers may survive. This small C17 house has an interesting plan form which survives relatively unaltered.
