3/40 Venton Farmhouse

Farmhouse. Probably late C16/early C17 altered in 1688 with C19 extension and C20
alterations. Rendered stone rubble walls with half-hipped asbestos slate roof. 2
rendered rubble axial stacks, left-hand one has drip-course.
3-room and through or cross passage plan with unheated lower room to the left. Hall
stack backs onto passage, axial inner room stack, probably inserted into formerly
unheated room. Outshut added behind lower room probably in 1688, the date of the
front plaque which refers to a remodelling. Rear parallel block built on probably
in the C19 flush with the outshut behind hall and inner room. Interior remodelled
in C20, plan relatively unaltered but original features obscured.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front of circa mid C20 2-light wooden casements.
To left of centre is original 4-centred granite arched doorway, chamfered with worn
stops. Above it is carved granite plaque with date 1688 inscribed either side of a
carved heart with initials I.K. at centre and W above. Set back behind doorway is
C19 panelled and glazed door. At left-hand end is corbelled first floor chimney
stack, truncated at the roof apex. Late C17 outshut at rear of left-hand end has
single granite framed light on gable end. At rear the C19 addition extends to left
of outshut.
Interior: No early features visible, but some are likely to be concealed by later
alterations. Roof timbers not inspected.
