JACOBSTOWE
SS 50 SE
7/159 Lower Cadham Farmhouse
-
- II
Farmhouse. Early to mid C17 possibly with medieval origins, altered in C20.
Rendered and plastered cob and rubble walls. Gable ended slate roof to main range,
hipped corrugated iron roof to front wing. Rendered rubble axial stack with brick
shaft, brick stack at right gable end.
Plan: 3-room-and-through-passage plan, lower end to the right, with wing projecting
from front of inner room. Hall stack backs onto passage, lower room has gable end
fireplace. Possibly original small rectangular stair projection at rear of hall.
The wing at the front of the inner room is slightly problematic - its features,
suggest it is also early to mid C17 and although it is now subdivided it is likely
originally to have been one room. Its original purposes is more unclear however -it
is now an outbuilding and there is no fireplace but the fine quality moulded mullion
window suggest a parlour wing rather than a service wing. 1 storey C20 addition
behind inner room and alterations to lower end caused by partial subdiving of house.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front with gabled 2 storey porch at
centre and wing projecting from left-hand end. Early C20 2 and 3-light casements to
left of porch. 2-light small-paned early C20 easement on 1st floor of porch. To
its right on ground floor is C17 4-light ovolo-moulded wooden mullion above. Mid
C20 3 and 4-light casements to right. The 1st floor of the porch overhangs and has
probably C19 decorative barge-boards with pendant finial. Below is C17 wide richly
moulded wooden doorframe. Chamfered inner doorframe to porch with contemporary oak
studded door. The wing at the left has 2 doorways, both with old plank doors, the
right-hand one has C17 chamfered doorframe. On 1st floor is C17 moulded wooden
window frame where 2 mullions have been removed. At the front of the wing on the
1st floor is a similar complete 2-light mullion window. At rear of main range is
shallow rectangular stair projection to right of centre and C20 1 storey addition to
right.
Interior: hall has fireplace with chamfered wooden lintel. 2 chamfered axial
ceiling beams. At the higher end of the hall is a wooden bench with C17 panelling
behind it. Lower room has moulded plaster cornice at either end and moulded
plasterwork to beam at centre. C17 chamfered doorframe from passage to lower end.
Front wing, now an outbuilding, has heavy chamfered and hollow step-stopped cross
beams.
Roof timbers inaccessible at time of survey but may be of interest and possibly give
evidence of medieval origins to this house.
