Company chief ordered to get a small house (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

cottage

Here is my best explanation:

'small house' is the definition.

(seen before)

'company chief ordered to get a' is the subsidiary indication.

'chief' suggests taking the first letters.

'ordered' indicates anagramming the letters.

The first letter of 'company' is 'c'.

'to'+'get'+'a'='togeta'

'togeta' anagrammed gives 'ottage'.

'c'+'ottage'='cottage'

(Other definitions for cottage that I've seen before include "simple accommodation", "Modest accommodation", "Small single-storey dwelling", "Country residence", "Small place", "To make a home", "Small living space", "bungalow", "small house" and "Country dwelling".)
