SY 09 NE
6/206 Perriton Farmhouse
- II

Farmhouse. Early - mid C17, part maybe earlier. Modernised circa 1970. Plastered
cob on stone rubble footings; stone rubble stacks topped with C20 brick, one
chimneyshaft is plastered, thatch roof.
Plan: farmhouse faces south-west. The main block has a 2-room plan and probably a
passage through the left end. The main room, the former hall, has a rear lateral
stack and the unheated inner room (now the kitchen) at the right end. 1-room plan
parlour block projects forward at right angles this end and has an inner side
lateral stack. A service wing projects at right angles to rear of the left end.
Since no internal inspection was available at the time of this survey it is not
possible to determine the historic development of the house although the layout
suggests its origins as some form of C16 open hall house. 2 storeys.
Exterior: 2:1 - window front of circa 1970 timber casements with rectangular panes
of leaded glass. The passage front doorway is at the left end of the main block and
is early - mid C17, a good studded oak plank door hung onto an oak doorframe with an
ogee-moulded surround. The gabled and thatch-roofed porch is C20. Where old
plaster render has survived at the front it shows a clasping pilaster effect on the
corners in smooth against rough-finished plaster. All the roofs are gable-ended.
Interior: was not available for inspection at the time of this survey but C17 and
maybe C16 carpentry detail is suspected.
