7/1 Coombeshead Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Probably late C17, extended at left end in C18 or early C19, and to rear
in C19. Rendered stone rubble. Slate roofs with gable ends. Rendered stone rubble
axial and left gable end stacks with tapered caps and drips. Brick stack to right
gable end rebuilt in C20.
Originally a 2-room symmetrical plan with a principal room each side of cross-
passage, the passage terminating where the stairs run up laterally from the rear
right-hand corner of the left-hand room. In C18 or early C19, a 2-storey extension
was added at the lower left end as a kitchen with a stair turret, now demolished, to
the rear right-hand corner. This part may have been occupied as a separate unit. In
C19 a gable-ended 2-storey service wing was added to rear creating an overall T-
shaped plan.
2 storeys. 3-window range. Principally C19 fenestration, all 2-light casements 6
panes per light. Gable slate roof to porch with 1/2-glazed inner door with margin
glazing bars.
Interior: largely altered in C19 and C20, but C19 joinery mostly intact including
integral bench in kitchen. Beams cased in. Fireplace lintel in left-hand room has
thin chamfer with straight-cut stops. 2 pegged trusses with side-pegged collars and
purlins resting on back of principals to original range, single pegged truss with
tiered purlins to extension.
