6/116 Bagbeare Farmhouse and adjoining
- farm building to south-west


Farmhouse. Early - mid C17 possibly with earlier origins, with C19 addition and
alteration. Rendered probably cob and rubble walls apart from exposed rubble wall at
left gable end. Gable ended asbestos slate roof. 3 stacks - brick one at each gable
end and axial stone rubble stack with dripcourse.
Plan: 3 room and through passage plan from which the passage has now disappeared but
likely to have been situated to the right of the hall adjoining its axial stack.
Both lower and inner rooms are heated but their fireplaces are not necessarily
original. Slight rectangular stair projection at rear of inner room although the
straight flight stairs which run up between it and the hall are likely to be a C19
insertion with a new front door put in front of them. C19 rear outshut added. The
outbuilding range parallel to the house is likely also to be C17 and is joined to the
it by a C19 wing behind the higher end of the house.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4 window front mainly of C18 3 and 4-light leaded
pane casements apart from 2 C19 casements of 2 and 3 lights. C20 part-glazed and
panelled door to left of centre. Single storey outbuilding wing extends behind left-
hand end of house connecting with outbuilding range at rear parallel to house with
corrugated asbestos roof. On its outer face the outbuilding has a wide cart entrance
to right, a door at the centre with a loading hatch above and a blocked window
opening to the left with stone hoodmould over.
Interior: Most early features in the house are concealed apart from chamfered and
straight-cut stopped ceiling beams in hall and lower end and a section of C17
panelled wainscotting re-used on the first floor. Roof trusses inaccessible at time
of survey but may be of interest. Outbuilding contains substantial ceiling beams.
