House, originally farmhouse. Circa early-mid C17 with C19 extension, modernised in
early C20 internally.. Rendered granite rubble walls with granite mullion windows.
Rendered granite rubble axial stack at left of centre and to right gable end with
drip-courses. Grouted slate roof, gable ended with coping stones to left gable
3-room-and-through-passage plan with hall fireplace in unusual position at inner
end, and unheated inner room, possibly later extended. Lower room has gable end
fireplace. Original 2 storey porch at front of passage. Original position of
stairs unclear, C19 stairs inserted into passage. 2 storey leanto addition at rear
of inner room. 2 storeys with attic. Regular 3-window front with additional bay
to left which only has second floor dormer window. Main section has gabled
storeyed porch at centre with C17 2-light granite mullion window and hoodmould and
C17 3-light granite mullion window either side at both ground and first floor level
also with hoodmoulds. Mullions are hollow chamfered, some of the lintels have been
replaced. The hoodmould to the right-hand ground floor window has the motif X
inscribed on its labels. Square leaded panes, some of which are old. Attic second
floor windows are dormers with 2-light leaded casements, probably early C20. On
the ground floor the porch has a flat roof projecting forwards from it supported on
2 granite Doric columns reputedly brought from Moretonhampstead Market Hall in the
early C20. Inside the porch has stone seats and a front door of 9 panels, the top
6 moulded, probably early-mid C19. Rear facade much altered in C20.
Interior: the house was extensively modernised in early C20 and much of the joinery
dates from this period inlcuding panelling in ground floor rooms and the staircase
although the early C19 stairs survive from first floor upwards. The hall retains
its C17 fireplace which has a chamfered wooden lintel with hollow step stops,
splayed dressed granite jambs chamfered at the edges, a shallow shelf part way up
the back and arched granite oven opening in the right-hand side.
This was evidently a good quality C17 house and is relatively unusual in the
preservation of its orignal facade in a virtually unaltered state.
