Listing Text

SX 88 SE
6/5 George Teign Barton
Farmhouse. Probably C16 origins, thoroughly remodelled circa late C18/early C19.
Whitewashed rendered stone rubble; thatched roof, gabled at left end, hipped at end
of wing, rear outshut slated; left end stack, axial stack, projecting end stack with
set-offs and bread oven to outshut.
Plan: L plan, the main range of 2 builds but probably a 3 room and through passage
arrangement in origin, the lower end and passage rebuilt at the left. The odd
position and substantial scale of the stack heating the outshut suggests that it may
have been part of a C17 rear kitchen wing, subsequently remodelled as an outshut.
The long front wing, at right angles to the inner room, functioned as service
accommodation and a cider house at the end, formerly with apple loft over. The
rebuilding of the lower end and passage may date from the late C18/early C19 when the
main block was re-roofed; later C19 roof to most of wing.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4 window front with a change in roofline and front
plane to the right of the front door which leads into a truncated passage to left of
centre; thatched porch on posts. 1 ground floor and 2 first floor early C19 16-pane
timber sashes to left; C20 timber casement windows with glazing bars to right of
porch. The wing has timber casement windows to the left, a door to right of centre
and further door at extreme right into the outbuilding; 2 ground floor windows
between doors, 1 loft opening.
Interior: The middle room of the main block has an open fireplace with a dressed-off
timber lintel, granite jambs (1 jamb a chamfered monolith), and a bread oven. The
cross beam and exposed joists are replacements. Granite steps and some pitched stone
flooring between the middle room and the passage; late C18 or C19 stair with turned
newels and stick balusters adjacent to stack. The rear of the stack, visible in the
passage is good granite ashlar, a feature often associated with inserted stacks in
the region. The outshut has an open fireplace with an C18 or C19 timber lintel and
bread oven, the stack is probably C17. The wing has a probably C18 plain timber
stair and the remains of wall and ceiling plaster in what is now a store room
indicates former domestic use.
Roof: Most of the wing is roofed with C19 scissor-braced trusses but end adjoining
the main block and the main block roof has a probably slightly earlier collar rafter
roof truss design.
A large handsome thatched house which forms a group with the barn.
