3/134 Perry Farmhouse
Former farmhouse. C17, probably a remodelling and extension of an earlier house.
Whitewashed rendered stone ; thatched roof with plain ridge, gabled at ends ; left
end stack and axial stack.
Plan: The present arrangement is a 4 room and through passage plan with 2 unheated
service rooms at the right end, 2 heated rooms at the left end and a 2 storey
projection on the front off the heated room adjacent to the passage. The extreme
right end room is a former dairy, absorbed into the house and a thick crosswell
between the 2 heated rooms suggests that the original arrangement may have been 2
rooms and a through passage, the left end room ann addition contemporary with a
general remodelling of the house providing a large parlour. The projection may have
been a stair projection, a winder stair rises at the rear of the left-hand room and a
straight stair at the rear of the heated room adjacent to the passage.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2:1:1 window front (one window to the projection),
the 2 left-hand first floor windows gabled dormers. Wide C19 plank front door to
passage to right of centre, second entrance with a half-glazed thatched porch at
extreme left. Attractive set of probably early C19 iron-framed casements with iron
glazing bars ; timber casements to the projection and to the ground floor right. The
rear elevation has a rear door to the through passage, 1 first floor iron-frame
window with iron glazing bars and 2 small ground floor windows : this elevation is
blind to the right of the rear through passage door.
Interior: The right hand heated room has a stack backing on to the passage with stone
monolith jambs, a chamfered stopped timber lintel and dismantled bread oven ; Axial
ceiling beam with step nick stops. The left hand room has a fireplace with a
chamfered stopped lintel and ashlar stone jambs, the fireplace partly filled in with
stone rubble ; the axial ceiling beam is chamfered. Several modern partition walls
on the first floor.
