SS 42 NE
3/90 Bradavin Farmhouse including
lofted outbuilding adjoining to
Farmhouse including attached lofted outbuilding. Early C16 remodelled probably in
C17 and again in C19. Rendered stone and cob. Left gable end rebuilt in brick.
Slate roof, gable end to left hipped to front right wing. Axial rendered brick
stack, tall lateral front hall stack, heightened in brick. 2 lateral stacks to
rear, that heating lower end with tapered cap and off-sets, that to inner room with
brick shaft.
3-room and through-passage former open hall house, the rear through-passage door
now blocked. Slightly projecting stair turret to rear of hall. Following
insertion of floors and stack probably in C17, the interior was again heavily
remodelled in C19, when the front right-hand wing of lofted outbuildings, possibly
originally a cider-millhouse, was added creating an overall L-shaped plan. 2
storeys. 5-window range. Two 2-light casements, 6 panes per light to left of
stack above C20 porch with lean-to asbestos slate roof to left of 2-light casement,
8 panes per light. To right of stack are three 16-paned hornless sashes above 2
similar sashes to each side of porch with slate canopy. Semi-circular headed door
surround with 6 panelled door and fanlight. Front wing of outbuildings has window
to left of plank door on inner face, and a 2-light casement, 6 panes per light to
front end. Tall loft plank door on outer face. Gable-ended dairy outshut to rear
left end of main range.
Interior: most C19 joinery intact including integral cupboards to room to right of
through-passage and bench to hall. Said to be concealed stone chimneypiece to hall
fireplace. Roof structure largely replaced in C19 with kingpost trusses, but one
smoke blackened C16 truss survives over hall, with a morticed and tenoned cranked
collar and formerly with trenched purlins and ridge purlin. The change in first
floor levels suggests a possible phased insertion of floors in the C17.
