9/119 Bleatarn Park
Farmhouse. Probably early C17 to rear, with late C17 facade, for the
Hetherington family. Rendered walls, stone dressings and quoins; graduated
green slate roof with coped gables and kneelers to rear, brick chimney stacks.
2½ storeys, 5 bays. Entrance has moulded architrave and entablature, with
segmental pediment and C19 plank door. Small Yorkshire sash windows with
glazing bars have chamfered stone surrounds. Cornice incorporates lintels of
now filled attic windows: side window shows remains of mullion. Earlier 2
storey house is incorporated to rear under common roof of steep pitch.
Whitewashed sandstone rubble walls with battered plinth, probably of stone from
the nearby Roman Wall. 3 small original window openings, one with Yorkshire
sash and glazing bars, the others are ordinary sashes with glazing bars, all
with chamfered surrounds: other windows are C20 in C19 openings. Washhouse
extension under common roof to left, has casement window with glazing bars, with
the sill a re-used lintel initialled H.W. (Hetherington) and illegible early C17
date, with other illegible initials. This is perhaps the Highstonehouse at
Bleterne, referred to in Lord William Howard's Survey taken in 1603, (edited by
T.H.B. Graham), 1934, p.27. Listing does not include the other farm buildings.
