6/201 Wheelton House and attached
cottages and coachhouse at
- SD 613 202 (approx)

Farmhouse, with attached cottage and coachhouse. Mid-C18 house apparently
added to earlier house which was then altered as 2 cottages, and coachhouse
added to this. House: coursed squared sandstone with dressed quoins,
graduated stone slate roof with gable chimneys of brick (left) and stone,
moulded gutter brackets. Double-depth 2-bay plan. Two storeys, almost
symmetrical; offset to right, a fielded-panel door with emphatic pedimented
Gibbs surround; 2 horizontal rectangular windows on each floor, all of 3
lights with chamfered flush mullions and glazing bars making 6 panes in
each light. Rear has square windows, altered or damaged, altered 3-stage
stairlight, and at ground floor of 1st bay a gabled single-storey extension
covering an unusual segmental arch in the rear wall (probably an
alteration). Interior damaged, but includes dog-legged staircase with
closed string and turned balusters; in rear room of 2nd bay coupled
rectangular fireplaces; stone steps to cellar under 2nd bay and apparently
also under area to rear. Cottages: attached on left (north) end of house,
of random rubble with quoins, stone slate roof (damaged); single depth, 2
bays; probably originally end-baffle-entry plan; 2 storeys, with doorway at
left end and another to the 2nd bay, one square window opening on each
floor to the right of each door (upper right window bricked up); rear
partly covered by earth at ground floor, 2 openings on each floor.
Interior has some evidence of former smoke hood at left gable. Coachhouse
added at left end of cottages, of coursed rubble with quoins has elliptical
arched entrance and large coupled square windows above, roof missing.
Note: house is unusually good example of its type and date, combining
vernacular and polite features.
