8/98 Little Venhay


House. An early C19 remodelling of an earlier, possibly C17 building. Whitewashed,
rendered cob and stone; slate roof, half-hipped at left end, gabled at right end;
projecting left end stack, right end stack and axial stack.
Plan: Single depth main range, 3 rooms wide with an entrance to right of centre into
a passage and a rear outshut enclosing a gabled rear right stair projection. The
main range contains a kitchen to the left, a living room in the centre and a parlour
to the right. The outshut provides service rooms and a rear entrance hall. The plan
suggests that a C17 3 room and through passage house has been refashioned in the
early C19.
Exterior: Asymmetrical 4 window garden front with a half-glazed panelled door to
right of centre and a C20 French window to the left. First floor window left is a 3-
light C19 or C20 small-pane timber casement, all the other windows are pretty 2-light
early C19 Gothick arched casements with small panes. The rear elevation shows the
gable of the stair projection which has curly bargeboards and a Gothick stair window
to match those on the front, there is also a gabled rear porch to the outshut.
Interior: The 2 left hand rooms have open fireplaces, probably C19 in date, the
kitchen fireplace with an iron lintel, the living room fireplace with a timber
lintel. The parlour fireplace is flanked by wall recesses and the parlour has a good
early C19 panelled door. The fine stick baluster staircase has a ramped, wreathed
handrail. An attractive feature of the outshut is pitched stone paving to the rear
entrance hall, the stones laid in diamond patterns.
Roof space not inspected.
A traditional farmhouse with an attractive early C19 remodelling with exterior and
interior features of interest.
