Farmhouse. C17, in 2 builds; altered in Cl9. Sandstone, the earlier part of
large random rubble now mostly pebble-dashed, with pantiled roof; the later
part of coursed squared sandstone, the west side chiselled and now strap-
pointed, and the rest rendered, with stone slate roof. The principal element
is of unequal double-depth lobby-entry 2-unit plan. Three storeys, probably
formerly symmetrical; the east front has a plain doorway with rectangular
lintel, a 4-pane sashed window each side, with exposed boxes; a similar
window at 1st floor to the right and an inserted window over the door; 2
small 6-pane windows to the attic; gable copings with kneelers; a chimney on
the roof slope in line with the door. South gable has 2 sashed windows at
ground and 1st floors. The rear has a central doorway with large rectangular
chamfered lintel, to the left a modern 3-light casement with flat-arched
head, to the right a 2-light double-chamfered mullioned window with rendered
surround; at 1st floor to the left a 2-light horizontal-sliding sash with
flat-arched head, and 2 oval tie-plates; at 2nd floor two 2-light double-
chamfered mullioned windows (lacking mullions); and a chimney on the slope
next to the left gable. The earlier element, now forming a service wing at
the north end, is single depth, 2 units and 2 low storeys; the east side,
continuous with the main block, is mostly of large random rubble with a
weathered coping at 1st floor, (except 2 pillars of the same material carried
up to the eaves), and has external steps to a door at 1st floor (formerly
granary) with inserted windows at this level; roof hipped at north end; ridge
chimney. Pebble-dashed rear has inter alia a small 2-light mullioned window
at ground floor of northern bay, a formerly similar window above lacking the
mullion.
Interior: principal element has C17 stop-chamfered beams at ground floor,
similar beams at 1st floor and some timber-framed partition walls; central
chimney stack approx. 2 metres deep; to rear of this a splat-baluster
staircase to full height; cross-corner fireplaces on 2 levels at north-west
corner; 2 exceptionally large kingpost roof trusses of pine, with kingposts
bolted to the beams, and 2 tiers of fishbone struts; longitudinal partition
making small lodgings for labourers on west side of attic;
History: not known, but structure suggests partial rebuilding of early C17
house in late C17 or very early C18.
