4/176 Eastern Town Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C17 with C19 and C20 additions. Rendered cob and rubble walls. Hipped
concrete tile roof. 2 brick stacks - one at left-hand end and one axial.
Plan: 3-room-and-through-passage plan, lower end to the left. Hall stack backs onto
the passage. Lower room may have been extended and its stack added in C18. Inner
room stack also probably a later insertion. C19 small wing added behind left-hand end
and C19 or C20 outshut along rear wall of hall and passage.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front, the left-hand end of which is
recessed. All C19 3-light casements with pin hinges apart from first floor left-hand
window and that to left of porch on ground floor which are 2-light C20 casements. C20
leanto porch to left of centre with plank door behind.
Interior: hall has open fireplace with chamfered wooden lintel which has straight cut
stops; oven in left-hand side. Chamfered unstopped ceiling beam. Lower room has
large fireplace with rough wooden lintel and inner room has similar smaller fireplace.
The first floor landing has balusters with an C18 heavy turned newel post with ball
finial which has probably been re-used. The feet of insubstantial straight principals
are visible on the first floor suggesting the roof trusses are not earlier than C19.
Despite having relatively few original features this house does preserve its original
plan form as well as an unusually complete facade of C19 casements.
