5/176 Foul Rake House
- II
House. "JA MA 1746" (John and Mary Andrew) on door lintel
with later alterations and additions. Watershot hammer-
dressed stone with graduated stone slate roof. Originally a
3-bay 2-storey single-depth house connected to a barn at the

similar wing was added to the left and the space between
filled in in late C18. Wings to left and right have quoins,
gables and ball finials; the right a blocked doorway and
the left two 2-light chamfered mullion windows and a C20
window. The infill between the wings has 3 bays, a blocked
door to right with ovolo-moulded surround, a central
panelled door with pilasters, tripartite keystone and
decorative fanlight flanked by 2-light chamfered mullion
windows. 3 similar windows on first floor (one mullion
missing) and a dentilled eaves cornice. The rear has 3 and
7-light double-chamfered cavetto-moulded mullion windows and
a C20 window on the ground floor and 3, 4 and 4-light
chamfered windows on the first. The finely carved 1746
datestone with fleur-de-lys is now on an internal wall.
