ASHWATER
SS 30 SE
1/11 West Statfold Farmhouse
- II
Farmhouse. Probably mid to late C18 with some C19 alterations. Whitewashed rendered
cob on stone rubble footings, corrugated iron roof hipped at the left end, gabled at
the right end formerly thatched. Stone stack at right end with brick chimney shaft,
brick chimney at left end.
The plan is 2-rooms wide and unusually deep for the width with a rear stair hall and
service room behind partition walls. The original entrance appears to have been
direct into the principal heated room on the right, a small room to the left may
originally have been unheated. 2 small rear service rooms flank a rear open stair
hall which is surprisingly large for the scale of the house. An outbuilding with
loft over adjoining at the right end is under a lower roofline and is probably an
addition, the ground floor has been converted to a C20 kitchen with rear larder. A
loft entrance at the rear of the house indicates that the house roofspace was
originally used for storage. A C20 single-storey front addition obscures part of the
front elevation.
2 storeys. 2-window front with an approximately central half-glazed front door. The
ground floor windows are 2-light 6-pane casements with plain architraves, the first
floor windows are similar with 8 panes per light: the left-hand windows are regular.
The converted ground floor of the adjoining building at the right has a front
entrance and a rear casement window with square-leaded panes.
Interior The principal heated room to the right has 1 chamfered cross beam, exposed
joists and a large fireplace with stone rubble jambs and a timber lintel. The
smaller room to the left has a roughly-chamfered axial beam and exposed joists, the
fireplace surround is C20. A stud and plaster partition wall divides the left-hand
room from a small rear service room. The rear stair has C19 stick balusters. The
roof trusses are pegged and probably C18. The loft over the C20 kitchen has an
entrance in the right gable end and a C19 scissor brace roof. An interesting example
of a small vernacular house with an unusual plan, ambitious stair and smart detail to
the fenestration.
