Farmhouse. Circa early C17 with a mid C19 wing. Stone rubble with slate roof,
gabled at right end, hipped at left end of main range, gabled at end of wing; 2 rear
lateral stacks to main range (one C17, one C20), end stacks and axial stack to wing,
all with brick shafts.
Plan: L plan. The main range, facing south is the remains of a large 3 room and
through passage plan house, the hall to the right, the lower end under the same roof
span as the west-facing wing. The inner room has been truncated. When the wing was
added to the front of the lower end in the C19 the house was turned round with an
entrance on the west of the wing and the older house probably reduced to service
rooms. Single-storey lean-to and outbuilding adjoins left end of wing (i.e. rear of
old lower end room). Lean-to at right end of main range on site of former inner
Exterior: Asymmetrical 3 window south elevation with a gabled porch at the extreme

original C17 embrasure, splayed internally but with a 4-light C19 window 8 panes per
light, the right hand window with C20 glazing. 2 first floor windows with C19
casements, 8 panes per light ; 4-light to the left, 3-light to the right. The return
of the wing has 1-2-light C19 first floor window, similar ground floor window, both
at the right end, but is otherwise blind except for a C20 casement on the first floor
at the left. The west side of the wing is a conventional symmetrical 3-bay
arrangement with panelled door, rectangular fanlight, porch on posts and timber sash
windows with glazing bars. 1 first floor and 1 ground floor C20 casement at the left
end (the lower end of the C17 range).
Interior: High quality C17 features survive. The hall is unusually large with
moulded crossbeams, a plank and muntin screen with moulded head beam, chamfered
stopped muntins and blocked ogival doorway. Hall fireplace partly rebuilt and
reduced in size with moulded Beerstone jambs and ovolo-moulded stopped lintel. The
lower end room fireplace has the remains of a cambered lintel and hearth seats. On
the first floor at the right gable end a partly concealed plank and muntin screen
with moulded head beam.
Roof: Pegged C17 tie-beam trusses, mortised at the apex with later collars.
Stone fragments of ecclesiastical origin are incorporated into the walling of the
single-storey rear left outbuilding : a volcanic stone pinnacle and sections of stone
decorated with blind quatrefoils. A late C16 date and initials may be an antiquarian
An evidently high quality C17 house. Duvale was the site of a Domesday Manor held by
Walson and appears as Denvall in a 1302 list of fees.
