3/4 Clapperdown Farmhouse

Farmhouse. Circa mid C17 with late C17 addition. Rendered cob walls, partly
rendered rubble to wing. Main range has thatched roof, hipped at either end, gable
ended slate roof to wing. Axial rubble stack with dripcourse, wing has gable end
brick stack.
Plan: 3 room plan with baffle entry in front of axial stack which serves both
central and right-hand room. Rear wing added behind right-hand end in late C17,
heated by gable end stack.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4 window front, on 1st floor are early C20 3 and
4 light casements, mid-later C20 casements below. C20 timber and glazed gabled
porch to right of centre with contemporary door. Wing projects to rear of right-
hand end. C20 leanto at rear in the angle.
Interior: in the rear wing is one exposed cross beam which is chamfered with ogee
stops. Otherwise no early features are visible but large open fireplaces are likely
to be concealed in the main range.
This house is an interesting and relatively unusual example in Devon of a completely
C17 farmhouse with baffle entry plan as opposed to the more customary 3 room-and-
through-passage plan.
