We were thrilled to be invited inside the homestead as the owners showed us their renovations.
Lower Westcott is part of the British Listed Buildings, and is identified as “Westcott Farmhouse on South Side of Settlement at Westcott, Tremaine” (English Heritage Building ID: 1105875) this list includes buildings that have been identified as having of special architectural and historic interest, so as you can see it’s not just me who is interested!
The owners have spent considerable time and money renovating the buildings and property, even so it is still a home and as such incorporates creature comforts such as an inside toilet, electricity and a modern kitchen but none of which has been done at the expense of the original style of the building.
Our main interest was the areas of the house that reflected the original style of the building, remnants of which could be most readily seen in the kitchen and the upstairs sleeping areas.
