9/168 Carscombe Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Early to mid C17 origins, re-roofed and extended in the C18. Substantial
C20 alterations. Whitewashed rendered cob and stone rubble; thatched roof, half-
hipped at right end and at front end of crosswing, hipped at rear of crosswing; front
lateral stack, rear left corner stack to main block, stack at front end of crosswing.
Plan: Single depth 2 room plan main range with a crosswing at the left end, C20 rear
left lean-to. The main range may have been a 2 or part of a 3 room and through
passage plan, the right hand room heated from the lateral stack, the lift hand room a
circa mid C17 parlour heated from the rear left corner stack. It is possible that
the 2 rooms were separated by a through passage (former doorway on front, opposed
rear door) but the evidence is scanty. The crosswing is probably an C18 addition and
was formerly in use as a poultry house, now used as a kitchen and service rooms.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window front, the eaves thatch eyebrowed over
the first floor windows. Semi-circular bread oven to stack to right of centre;
fenestration of C19 and C20 timber casements with glazing bars, window to left of
stack was formerly a doorway. The entrance is now into the wing which has 1 ground
floor and 1 first floor C20 timber casement.
Interior: Very altered. The partition or partitions between the 2 principal rooms
has been removed. Open fireplace to lateral stack with chamfered timber lintel,
chamfered crossbeam. The left hand room has a possibly re-sited ovolo-moulded axial
beam and a section of good C17 ovolo-moulded plank and muntin screen has been re-
sited in the crosswing.
Roof: Trusses over the main range are late C17/early C18 with cranked collars halved
and pegged on to the principals.
