5/94 Treaslake and 2 adjoining houses


Former farmhouse and adjoining barn, barn now converted to separate dwellings. Late
Medieval origins, remodelled and possibly extended in the circa early C17, several
phases of C20 renovation and alteration including alterations being carried out at
time of survey (1987). Roughly dressed stone, brought to course, the barn wing brick
on stone footings; thatched roof, hipped at ends; 2 axial stacks with brick shafts to
main range, axial stack to rear wing.
Plan: Treaslake is T plan, a main range facing north west with a rear wing at right
angles. A front left wing at right angles was formerly a barn and has been converted
to 2 houses. The main range is single depth, 4 rooms wide, formerly with a through
passage. The arrangement, although somewhat obscured by alteration, appears to have
been higher end to the left, with the hall stack backing onto the passage, an
unheated inner room (possibly later) and a lower end kitchen to the right with a
massive smoking chamber projection with a second, added, lower end room. The core of
the house is a late medieval open hall, although with limited access to the roofspace
at time of survey (1987) the full extent of the hall house was not clear. The rear
wing appears to be integral with the main range. Much of the ground floor carpentry
has been renewed or removed in the C20, including the lower end passage partition.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 5 window front with a C20 thatched porch to the
former cross passage with a C19 plank front door and a smoking chamber projection to
right of centre with a hipped thatched roof. To the left of the porch, a 5-light
timber mullioned window with ovolo-moulded mullions and C20 glazing and a 4-light
similar window above with late C17 or C18 square leaded panes. First floor window
left is a 2-light C18 casement with square leaded panes, 3-light C18 casement with
square leaded panes to the first floor of the smoking chamber projection. Other
windows are 2- and 3-light timber casements with glazing bars, C19 or C20. The barn
wing, to the left has 1 first floor and 2 ground floor C20 small pane casements. The
rear elevation retains a probably C17 3-light first floor mullioned window.
Interior: The room to the left of the front door has an open fireplace with good
Beerstone jambs and a chamfered stopped crossbeam. The putative lower end room, to
the right of the front door, has an open fireplace and renewed ceiling beams. Framed
partition between wing and main range. On the first floor there is a good fireplace
to the putative hall stack with chamfered jambs and lintel and rather flat urn stops.
Roof: Access limited at time of survey but the main range appears to be of jointed
cruck construction throughout and the apex, seen only in the centre of the house, is
heavily sooted with the thatch laid on sooted wattle. The wing is also of jointed
cruck construction, the apex not smoke-blackened.
A substantial house of medieval origins.
