6/75 West Libbear Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Early - mid C17 with probably C19 additions. Rendered cob and rubble
walls. Gable-ended slate roof. 3 brick stacks - 1 at each end and 1 axial.
Plan: originally likely to have had 2-room-and-through-passage plan - hall to lower
right with stack backing onto passage and lower room heated by end stack. Inner
room at right end is probably a C19 addition and was reputedly formerly an
outbuilding. C19 outshut at rear.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 5-window front of mid-late C20 2, 3, and 4-light
diamond leaded pane casements. The left-hand end of the house is slightly recessed,
C20 conservatory extends along most of the front with glazed door towards each end.
Interior: left-hand room has 2 chamfered ceiling beams with straight-cut stops.
The old lintel to the fireplace has been cut into probably to allow room for a
range. There is a headbeam to an original partition between this room and the
passage with 1 surviving plank. Hall fireplace has chamfered wooden lintel with
hollow step stops and similar ceiling beams.
2 original roof trusses survive over the hall which have slightly curved feet and
cranked collars halved in with notched joints. Trenched purlins.
