6/43 Ruddycleave Farmhouse

Longhouse. C16 altered circa 1760 and again in early C19. Granite rubble. Hipped
thatched roof; porch and lean-to in front slated. Old granite chimneys on ridge at
either side of porch. Plan has through-passage with 2 rooms to left; kitchen and
former shippon to right. Documentary evidence suggests the kitchen was formed out
of part of the shippon; there are, however, sharp differences in floor-levels at
this end of the building. Both hall and kitchen fireplaces back on to the through-
passage. 2 storeys with added single-storey lean-to in front. House-part is 3
windows wide; C19 casements with glazing-bars. Panel of slate-hanging between
upper and ground-storey windows in middle bay. Porch is gabled with segmental arch
of brick to the doorway C20 dormer window in roof of shippon.
Interior (ground storey only inspected) has few early features visible, although
others are almost certainly concealed under plaster. Documentary evidence suggests
the upper-floor beam in hall was not inserted until circa 1760.
