Full Description

At the junction with High Street, Holmdale, rendered with Bridgwater tile roof, is probably late 18th century or earlier with rear shouldered stack. There is a four-panelled entrance door with twin lights above and a flat hood timber porch with shallow arch, probably also early 19th century. The frontage was originally symmetrical, typical of the period, but there is an added bay to the left. The ground floor windows are 19th century tri-partite sashes, the first floor casements, probably later. This is one of a number of Porlock houses that it is a surprise to discover are not grade II listed, and without doubt, are an important element of the historic built environment. [1]
