2/64 Shobrooke Barton Farmhouse
Large Farmhouse, C17, probably earlier, some late C18 work, extended and
extensively refurbished in mid-late C19. Plastered cob on rubble footings,
volcanic stone stacks topped with brick, thatched roof. Originally a 3-room and
through-passage plan with inner room to north-east (right of front). 2-storeys,
backing onto road. Massive lateral stack projecting to rear of hall and stacks on
each gable end of present main block. C19 wing onto front corner of inner room
with hipped roof. Contemporary single-room extension to left end is set back
slightly from front of main block. Overall 6-window front of C19/C20 casements
with splayed bay-window with timber sashes, 6 panes per sash and slate roof to left
on extension. 3-light casements except hall with four lights; all with glazing
bars. C19 6-panel passage door left of centre with openwork wrought-iron porch;
gabled top with scrolled 'Tree of Life' finial. Secondary C19 door to former inner
room (now kitchen) at right end with plain, slate-roofed porch in angle of wings.
Small C19 brick chimney stack in centre serving hall chamber. To rear the passage
door now blocked. Timber sash 6 panes per light right of massive, projecting,
volcanic-stone stack which is rebuilt high above the eaves with late C18 early C19
bricks including some burnt headers. Unmodernised interior of largely C19
fittings, obviously hiding earlier structure and features. C17 scroll-stopped
beams exposed in kitchen (former inner room). Roof entirely replaced in mid-late
