8/29 Elmsleigh Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Circa late C17 origins, remodelled in the C18. Colourwashed rendered cob
on stone rubble footings, asbestos slate roof gabled at left end, half-hipped at
right end, 2 rendered axial stacks.
The original plan was probably a 3 room and passage house with the hall stack backing
on to the passage and an unheated lower end. A remodelling of the C18 probably
removed the lower end wall of the passage and provided a new entrance directly into
the hall creating a symmetrical elevation between the stacks. An addition at the
left end may originally have been used as a woodstore with an apple loft over.
2 storeys. 5-window front with regular fenestration and a symmetrical elevation
between the stacks, the range slightly set back to the left of the left-hand stack.
Central gabled porch with a round-headed outer doorway, a second entrance to the
right under a slate canopy on timber brackets may represent the original passage
doorway, the left-hand addition has a separate entrance on the front. Sash windows
throughout, 20-pane sashes between the stacks with a 12-pane sash above the porch,
first floor window left and ground floor window right 16-pane sashes, first floor
window right paired 12-pane sashes.
Interior Early features may be concealed behind the plaster. Roofspace not
