Berry House

(Formerly listed as Berry House,CLAYHANGER)

Farmhouse. A thorough early C19 remodelling of a late C16/early C17 house. Whitewashed rendered stone; slate roof, hipped at left end, gabled at right end; end stacks to centre block, end stacks to left and right blocks, end stack to right hand
rear wing.

PLAN: U plan main block with rear left and right wings, probably originally with a
narrow rear centre service courtyard, since filled in. One room plan blocks with lower rooflines adjoin the main range to left and right; the right hand block is circa late C16/early C17 origin. In 1805 the house was partially destroyed by a thatch fire, (letter in possession of owner).

EXTERIOR: Two storeys. Symmetrical three-bay centre block with one bay blocks to left and right, rusticated quoins to centre and left hand blocks. Central porch with rusticated pilasters, moulded cornice and a glazed roof, semi-circular fanlight with spoke glazing bars to inner doorway; fenestration of sixteen-pane sashes to the main and left hand block. Cellar below left hand and main block has a C17 stone mullioned window at the left; the right hand block is bowed on the right return.

INTERIOR: Centre block not inspected but said to have contemporary early C19 features including a plaster ceiling rose and local marble chimneypiece. The ground floor room of the right hand block has a deeply-chamfered stopped cross beam and a half beam; open fireplace with stone jambs, plain lintel and C19 bread oven. The vaulted cellars incorporate re-used moulded and chamfered beams.
