ST 20 NW
7/199 Glebe Farmhouse
Farmhouse, formerly a row of 3 cottages. Early C18, refurbished in the early - mid
C20. Plastered local stone and flint rubble; stone rubble stacks, one is disused,
the other is topped with C20 brick; thatch roof.
Plan: 3-room plan house facing west with its left (south) end abutting the
churchyard. The left end room is a parlour and has a projecting gable-end stack.
There is an axial stack between the other 2 rooms which formerly served back-to-back
fireplaces. It seems that the house was once a row of 3 1-up, 1-down cottages but
the C20 alterations have combined to remove or cover up the evidence of its
2 storeys.
Exterior: irregular 5-window front of mostly C20 casements without glazing bars
although a couple are C19 with their glazing bars removed. The first floor windows
rise into the thatch. There are 2 front doorways, one at the right end and another
towards the left end, and both contains C20 doors. The window immediately right of
the left doorway is blocking another doorway. The roof is half-hipped each end.
Interior is largely the result of C20 modernisations. The carpentry detail of the
left (south) room is C20 so too is the fireplace here. However both the centre and
right rooms have chamfered axial beams with straight cut stops. The centre room
fireplace is largely built of stone rubble, it has a chamfered oak lintel and
contains a Bideford cloam oven. The fireplace to the right room is blocked and its
space has been taken up by a lavatory closet. The roof, for the most part is made
up of common rafter couples which may be original but there is one C18 A-frame truss
with a pegged lap-jointed collar.
Glebe Farmhouse is one of an attractive group of listed buildings in the small
village of Yarcombe.
