NORTH STREET (west side) Braunton
Gordons Farmhouse and attached Barns


House, formerly farmhouse, probably C16, much altered in C20 and extended into part
of right-angled cob barn at upper end, the remainder forming a garage. Further
rubble barn with loft over at rear north side. Rendered stone rubble and cob.
Slate roof with gable ends. 2-storeys in 3 cell plan, originally through-passage
but screen removed and stairs inserted. Large lateral stack on front with offsets,
whitewashed cob and rubble with pantiled roof, brick stacks at gable ends. C20
refenestration and most openings altered. Square-headed through-passage C20 door
with roll-moulded chamfered and stopped surround. Pantiled canopy.
Interior: Shouldered doorframe at upper end of hall. Chamfered timber lintel to
fireplace. Large beam just below fireplace is roughly chamfered towards lower end
and rounded off on hall side, probably evidence of former jetty but roof timbers
entirely replaced in C20. Rubble barn to rear has wooden loft door above 'stable'
plank door. Ventilation slits towards each end. First floor plank door at left
gable end with timber lintel. Cob barn has pantiled roof. The farmhouse is built
gable-end to the street and with Town Farm (q.v.) is an example of a centrally-
placed former village farmhouse in relation to Braunton's historic cellular town
plan, a nucleated settlement which still has its open field system, the West Field.
