Former farmhouse. Circa mid C17, C20 renovatios. Rendered, probably cob on stone
footings; slate roof, gabled at ends ; projecting end stacks with granite shafts.
Plan: 3 room and cross passage plan, passage to left of centre. The 2 outer rooms
are heated from the end stacks and each have a newel stair in a stair outshut to
rear left and rear right. The centre room, to the right of the passage, is
unheated ; it may originally have had a timber-framed stack against the right hand
wall (said to be suggested by pattern of joists) and could later have been reduced
to an unheated service room. C20 renovations include the reconstruction of the
partition between the cross passage and centre room.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 5 window front, flight of wide stone steps up to
C19 front door (introduced from elsewhere) to passage to left of centre, "wall on
either side" of steps, mentioned in old list description, no longer exists.
Variety of small timber casement windows, those to the centre room unusually small.
Interior: Solid cross wall to left of passage with a C17 chamfered oak doorframe to
the left hand room; late C20 partition wall to right. The centre room has one
exposed chamfered cross beam with step nick stops ; joists concealed but said to be
chamfered on one side of the crossbeam, moulded on th other with an arrangement
against the right hand wall which may indicate a former timber framed stack. The
extreme right hand room has a chamfered cross beam with bar stops and an open
fireplace with chamfered granite jambs and an ovolo-moulded oak lintel. Late C17
panelled door to stair turret which has a timber stair. The left hand room has a
crossbeam similar to the centre room with chamfered joists with runout stops on the
fireplace side and shallow cyma reversa mouldings on the passage side of the
crossbeam. Open fireplace, partly bricked-in with a chamfered lintel; granite
axial passage ; small fireplace to right hand room with ovolo-moulded lintel.
No access to roofspace at time of survey (1987) but principal rafters visible
upstairs are straight. Cottage adjoining at right end, converted from a barn, not
included in the listing.
