Former farmhouse with east end now a separate cottage. Probably C15 with
C16, C17 and later improvements. Plastered cob on rubble plinth; brick,
cob and volcanic trap stacks. Thatched roof. Long building based on 3-room
and through passage plan with later extensions to rear (south). Now 2
storeys throughout. North front to farmyard has large projecting lateral
stack of dressed volcanic stone to hall. Secondary lateral stack to left
and gable-end stacks. C19 main door now to inner room on right. 6 C19 and
C20 casements to each floor but irregular in spacing and size. Door to
cottage on extreme left. Complex multi-period structure. Good original
roof on side-pegged jointed-crucks; 2 bays over hall and 2 bays over
services with chamfered arch-bracing on simple, false corbels and single windbraces. Framed, closed trusses over post-and-panel screens at each
end of hall and traces of buried hall-passage screen are visible. Both
roofs are smoke-blackened from separate open hearth fires. Large, inserted,
C16 stone fireplace with oak lintel and moulded surround and late C16
-early C17 stopped beams in hall. Identical chamfered beams across large
inner room/parlour (which now includes C19 entrance-hall). Gable fireplace,
a C20 rebuild, incorporates ovolo-moulded oak lintel. Roof to chamber
secondary. C16 - C17 gabled stair-turret projects to rear of parlour
(present entrance-hall) containing C19 stick-baluster stair. The service
end now mostly East Holme Cottage, was extended first in C16, and remains
of a contemporary closed truss are visible in roofspace. This end was
rebuilt in the or with a new end roof and brick kitchen-stack on gable.
Many early features still hidden.
