15/97 Haredon Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Circa late C15 with circa late C18 alterations including flooring of
hall. Stone rubble. Slate roof with hipped ends. 3-room and cross-passage plan.
Lateral hall chimney stack at rear rising from gabled projection and with internal
newel stairs to side of stack. Another lateral stack in rear wall f inner room.
There is no evidence that the lower end was heated. One storey and attic. 4-window
range. Wide cross-passage doorway to left of centre with C18 panelled door and
slated hood. Large hall window to right cross-passage in projecting bay. All C19
casement windows with glazing bars. 2 gabled dormers. Slate-hung gable of front to
left, probably truncated end of demolished wing. The situation of the house is
unusual because it is built across the slopw of the land which is at a much lower
level at the rear (north) and the service end has a rear doorway approched by stone
steps. There is no cross-passage rear doorway. Interior: wide cross-passage with
service room to left (west). The hall screen to right of passage appears to have
been removed but the top rail of a plank and muntin screen survives over a later
partition. Hall lateral fireplace on rear wall is blocked, and internal newel
stairs to right at upper end of hall. Stone partition walls between hall and inner
room and between cross-passage and lower service room. The hall and inner room do
not have exposed ceiling beams and it seems that the hall was floored as late as
C18, possibly at the same time as the C18 joinery which includes panelled doors,
doorframes, cupboards and internal window shutters etc. Jointed cruck truss roof.
3 principal trusses to hall with arch-braces to cranked collars with hollow chamfer
moulding. Trenched through purlins which are chamfered with steps over 2 bays of
the hall. The rafters are also chamfered over the hall. Another pait of jointed
crucks at the lower end.Apex of roof space ceiled and inaccessible at time of
survey 1984. The attic rooms are papered and painted making it difficult to say
whether there is any smoke-blackening of the roof. Haredon is an important and
remarkably unaltered late medieval house.
