6/117 Windgate Farmhouse



Farmhouse. Probably early C17 with some C19 remodelling and C20 refenestration.
Whitewashed and rendered, probably cob and stone; bitumen-painted slate roof, gabled
at ends; right end stack and axial stack to the main range, end stack to wing.
Plan: L plan, a single depth south-west facing range with a 1 room plan wing
adjoining at right angles to the front at the west. The main range has a lower end
kitchen to the right with a rear dairy outshut, which may be contemporary, and a
through passage to the left. The higher end has been re-partitioned with an axial
passage along the front but was probably full depth rooms, one with a stack backing
on to the passage. A stair which is probably C19 occupies the left hand end of the
main range. The wing is a fine early C17 parlour.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Almost symmetrical 2 window front with regular fenestration and
a C20 half-glazed front door to the passage in the centre. Good set of C17 ovolo-
moulded stone mullioned windows, 4-light with hoodmoulds flanking the door, 3-light
to the first floor, some with old glass and square leaded panes. The inner return of
the wing has a 4-light mullioned window to the ground floor and a 3-light window
above. The mullioned windows on the rear elevation have been replaced with C20
Interior: The passage and kitchen retain flag floors, the kitchen with old wall
plaster, a plain crossbeam and a massive fireplace with a chamfered lintel. 2
sections of chamfered beam have been re-used in the axial passage, the putative hall
stack has a modern fireplace and is said to be brick with the remains of a stair
turret adjacent to it - the stack is said to be brick and perhaps is a rebuilding.
The wing has a good moulded Beerstone chimney-piece of the early C17 with a cranked
Roof: Not inspected but principal rafters appear to be straight.
An attractive traditional house with a good set of windows.
