6/210 Hill House
- II

Farmhouse and house, now all one dwelling. C17 and C19, altered and
recently renovated. C19 house added to front of 1st two bays of 3-bay C17
house. All sandstone, the older part coursed thin sandstone rubble with
large quoins, the addition watershot coursed with raised quoins, both with
slate roofs (steeply pitched over the older part) and ridge chimneys. C17
house, 2 low storeys, has inter alia remains of recessed mullioned windows,
some with hoodmoulds but lacking all mullions: one at ground floor of
exposed front of 3rd bay, one at 1st floor of gable and 3 at ground floor
of rear. C19 addition, 2 higher storeys, has 2 windows on each floor all
formerly sashed with plain surrounds, but altered as casements with glazing
bars and that at ground floor to left further altered; 2 similarly altered
windows on each floor of right gable, and a plain doorway near the
junction. Interior not inspected, but believed to contain some features of
interest (and absence of any original window openings at 1st floor of rear
wall suggests possible cruck-framed origin).
