Listing Text

SJ 86 SE
3/37 Higher Overton Farmhouse

Farmhouse. C18 with remnants of earlier work and mid-C19 alterations
and additions. Coursed and squared rubble, parts in ashlar; blue machine
tile roof; verge parapets; brick ridge stacks on either side of centre
axis. 'T'-shaped plan formed by later additions to rear. 3-storey,
3-window front; block mullioned casements, except ground floor to left
and right; all with now-fitting shutters (October 1984); 2 widely-
spaced ranges of windows flanking roughly central entrance, 2 lights
to first and second floors (plus one to second floor), 3 lights to
ground floor; C20 windows to left and right of ground floor; C20 gabled
single-storey porch and entrance; single-storey addition to left. Three
building phases are evident to frontage: large blocks to If storeys on
left, corollating in construction detail with the barn, dated 1740 (q.v.),
and taken up to centre line of porch with smaller blocks to right;
larger blocks to later upper storey. As the detail of fenestration is
reasonably coherent, the time-span of phases may have been short.
