4/47 Torhill Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C17 or earlier, improved and extended at rear in C19. Granite rubble
walls rendered at front and sides. Rendered stone axial and gable end stacks with
drip-courses. Right hand lower gable and stack projects with an oven. Welsh slate
roof with gable ends, catslide at rear.
Plan probably 3 room and through passage with small service rooms added at the rear
extending the whole length under a catslideroof. Original arrangement of ground
floor rooms uncertain because interior was inaccessible. If the front door is in
its original position and leads to the through passage then the lower room or
kitchen would be in the more normal position of the inner room i.e reached through
the hall, and the inner room would instead be on one side of the passage. If,
however, the front door had been moved and its original position, with the passage,
was at the lower right end of the hall, this would give the hall the somewhat
unusual, though not unknown, feature of having the fireplace at the inner end of
the room rather than backing onto the through passage.
2 storeys, outshut at rear is of one storey, and an attic. Asymmetrical 4 window
front to south-east with C19 casements of 1-, 3- and 4-lights with glazing bars.
Right-hand first floor window C20. C19 glazed and panelled door to left of centre
with corrugated iron canopy supported on old shaped brackets. Circular oven to
right gable end stack. 3 gabled dormer windows to 1st floor at rear over outshut.
Interior inaccessible. Despite C19 modernisation the early fabric of this house is
obvious and it is likely to contain original features still, though probably
