2/98 Stacombe Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Circa mid C16 with C17 alterations and modernised in C19. Rendered
granite rubble walls, thatch roof gabled to right end and half hipped to the left.
3 chimney stacks; right-hand gable one is rendered brick; very large projecting
rendered granite lateral stack at front with offsets and brick shaft. Large
projecting rendered granite rubble stack at left gable end with offsets and oven
projection to the right, rendered brick shaft.
3-room-and-through-passage plan originally with open hall with original jettied
chamber over inner room and original chamber over passage and lower room. Hall
ceiled in C17 and front lateral stack built heating hall and chamber above. At
this time it is possible that the inner room was used as a kitchen because it has a
large gable end stack with an oven. The lower room seems to have been unheated
until mid C19 when it became the parlour with stack added at the lower end.
C19/C20 outshut added at rear of lower room and hall.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front with large projecting lateral stack to left
of centre. All windows are mid C20 metal frame 2- and 3-light casements. Mid C20
lean-to to rendered concrete porch to passage door at right of centre. Outshut
along rear wall.
Unspoilt interior with several original and early features and with others
undoubtedly concealed. Hall has very wide internal jetty at inner end of chamfered
joists projecting approximately 12" into the room with curved ends and 'tongue'
stops. Hall cross beam is chamfered with hollow step stops; at the front it rests
on an upright post which has ovolo-moulded edges with hollow step and notch stops.
Solid stone partitions between - hall/inner room and hall/passage. Hall fireplace
has modern grate. In hall chamber the wall above the fireplace incorporates a
relieving arch. Either partition wall to this chamber consists of a closed truss
with substantial principal rafters (whose feet disappear into the walls), morticed
tie beam and central strut to apex. Roof space not inspected.
