- outbuilding adjoining
Farmhouse. C17 or earlier, much altered in C19. Granite rubble walls, rendered at
front and most of wing. Slate roof with gable ends, attached barn has corrugated
iron roof. Axial stack is rendered, probably stone. Granite block gable end stack
both to main range and wing, with granite capping; oven projection beside wing
3-room-and-through-passage plan, the lower end to left, below the passage, rebuilt
as barn. Axial hall stack backing onto passage and heated inner room with gable end
stack. In circa late C17 a kitchen wing was built at the rear of the higher end
with a gable end stack and adjoining oven; a 2-storey porch was built at the front
of the passage. Possibly at this time the lower end was replaced by the barn
although there might be some earlier fabric possibly of a shippon. In mid to late
C19 the house was modernised, heightened and refenestrated.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front to house with storeyed porch to left. 2-
light circa late C19 casements with glazing bars. Porch has shallow 4-centred late
C17 granite arched doorway with hoodmould and chamfered on inside and out. Mock
C19 hoodmould in plaster above porch window. Stone mounting block to left of
doorway. Early C20 plank and glazed door to passage inside porch. Barn has much
lower roof line with doors to right and left and 1st floor loading door to right.
Interior inaccessible at time of survey but passage seen to have dressed granite
fireplace back with chamfered plinth and cornice. There is also known to be a C17
date carved in plaster in a first floor room.
