4/184 Barramoor Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Probably circa mid C17 with subsequent alterations. Rendered granite
rubble walls, repaired with brick on left-hand side of front wall. 2 granite rubble
axial stacks with dripmoulds. Slate roof hipped to left, half hipped to right.
Plan somewhat obscured by alterations but basically shippon and calf house to left,
house to centre and stable to right, all possibly integral. House has no
discernible passage from front to back but now has longitudinal passage at the front
on 1 side with large room at either end and a staircase and dairy between them.
Both main rooms have fireplaces to the end walls dividing them from adjoining
2 storeys. Shippon and calf house to left has 2 ground floor doorways. House has
asymmetrical 4 window front with 2 windows and roughly central door to ground floor.
All windows are probably early C20 two light casements with glazing bars except for
ground and first floor right which are 3-light C20 plank door in breeze block
rendered lean-to porch with slate roof. To right of house is stable, possible
straight joint between them. Stable has doorway to left and window to right on
ground floor. At rear outshuts to left and right ends with irregular windows in
between. Right hand gable end has loading door for loft above stable.
Interior contains some early features. Left-hand room has large open fireplace
with heavy granite lintel hollow chamfered with worn stops. Right-hand main room
has stone newel staircase rising from beside fireplace which is blocked but
apparently contains an oven. Cross beam chamfered with hollow step stops. Similar
beam running across adjoining dairy and passage. Roof partially inspected.
Substantial timbers possibly C17-C18.
This farmhouse is interesting for its plan which appears to be longhouse derivative
but with no access from house to shippon internally. The plan of the house itself
does not conform to the 3-room-and-through-passage type commonly found but is an
interesting example of a transitional plan with an unheated central room.
