Farmhouse. C16 with C17 alterations. Completely modernised within last 2 years.
Rendered granite rubble walls. Thatched roof, gable ended. Rendered, probably
brick, gable end stacks; rendered stone axial stack with dripcourse.
Originally 3-room-and-through-passage plan with hall, and possibly lower room, open
to the roof timbers with central hearth; inner room always had a chamber above it.
Floors inserted into hall and lower end in C17 and hall stack inserted backing onto
passage. Rear wing at higher end consisting of outbuilding probably C18. Outshuts
added at rear probably in C19.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front of C20 3-light casements with glazing bars.
Wide doorway to passage at right of centre with C20 part glazed door behind C20
gabled porch with slate roof. Outshuts along rear wall of house.
Interior much altered, few features remain. Hall fireplace now blocked but said to
have massive cracked granite lintel. One original cross beam survives in the hall
with fillet and ovolo moulding and bar and straight cut stop, cut off at rear and
repaired at the front. 3 original roof trusses survive; 2 over the hall (one of
which is at higher end) are smoke blackened, that at the higher end is closed truss
to chamber over inner room with original plaster, smoke blackened on the hall side
only. The original purlins and collars have gone but the smoke blackened ridge
survives. Where the front wall has been built up the roof has been raised and new
timbers put on top of the old ones. The feet of these trusses are not visible but
that of the truss over the lower end of the passage is and it is a side pegged
jointed cruck.
