Penkhull Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Late C18, some mid C19 alteration and extension. Brick, cement rendered (lined out as ashlar block) to front and rear wing; gabled plain tile roofs, with rendered end stacks to front and brick stack at junction of rear wings. T-shaped plan with rear wing having lean-to to its E and mid C19 block extending at right angles to W. 2 storeys. 4-window S front with lintels over half-glazed mid C19 panelled door and horned glazing bar sashes (3/6 to first floor, 6/6 below); similar sashes to mid C19 canted bay window on right. Late C19 and C20 timber casements to rear, except E elevation which has 3/6-pane sash and, to gable end of rear cross wing, stepped lintel over small-paned timber casement.
Interior: the interior has been little altered since the C19. Features include late C18 moulded cornicing and joinery, including panelled doors and shutters in moulded architraves with original fitments. Simple classical fireplaces with late C18 and mid C19 cast iron grates, that to parlour having mid C19 overmantle mirror. Panelled earth closet. Stairhall with elliptical arch on moulded brackets: fine staircase with stick balusters to open-string and wreathed handrail.
History: the house probably dates from soon after 1780, when Josiah Spode II leased the farm. It changed ownership in 1830 with the sale of farm stock to John Smith, and was bought by John Pilkington in 1855.
