SS 60 NE
3/5 West Brushford Farmhouse
- II

Farmhouse. Early C17, refurbished in C19, roof replaced circa 1950 and modernised
circa 1984. Plastered cob on rubble footings; stone rubble stacks topped with C19
and C20 brick; concrete interlocking tile roof (formerly thatch).
House faces south-east with 4-room plan. The 2 main rooms on left (south-west)
end, 1 either side of cross passaage to projecting rear stair block. Projecting
left end stack and outer axial stack to other main room. Small service room at
right end and a fourth room in a narrower projection set back from front on right
end. 2 storeys.
Symmetrical 3-window arrangement of circa 1984 PVC casements with glazing bars
around similar double doors. Door flanked by C20 gabled buttresses. At right end
is a possibly C18 narrow timber-framed window. Roof is gable-ended.
Interior: Main rooms have good early C17 features. In left room the plainly-
finished crossbeams were obviously intended for plaster cladding. The fireplace
indicates that this was a high status room. Its stone sides have been rebuilt but
the lintel is original with a double ogee soffit moulding with carved acanthus
leaf stops. The room to right of passage has a 3-bay ceiling. The crossbeams are
soffit-chamfered with pyramid stops incised to look like leaves. The fireplace
here is blocked. The stair block now contains C19 replacement staircase. Roof not
inspected but structure said to have been replaced circa 1950.
