Farmhouse. Probably C17 with later alterations and additions. Sandstone
rubble and brick with hipped tiled and corrugated iron roofs and diagonal
brick stacks. L-plan with one arm to north-north-east and the other to
east-south-east. One storey and attic. South elevation has three windows,
early C20 gabled dormers with 2-light casements. Beneath them, three glazing
bar sashes. Late C20 glazed porch to left of centre conceals late C17 or early
C18 door with six panels. Small lean-to C20 porch in -breeze block in front of
right hand side. To left is a late C18 to early C19 brick catslide lean-to
enveloping a former end stack. West elevation has, above the lean-to, two
gabled dormers with casements, probably C18, glazed with quarries. Attached
to the left is a brick mid-C19 granary and stable block. Interior has pegged
king-post trusses to south range. Catslide roofed western extension has five
bays and half-trusses each with one vertical post tied back to the bottom of
each principal. Granary and stable block has mid-C19 king-posts carrying
raking struts to principals. Immediately to the east of Home Farmhouse is the
site of Allensmore Court which was demolished c1957. This represented an
unusually close juxtaposition of a small country house and its home farm.
