3/120 Resugga Farmhouse

Farmhouse, now house. Circa late C16 - early C17; addition of circa mid C17, and
later alterations and some C20 alterations. Granite rubble; the front rendered, and
part of the left side and rear rendered and roughcast. Slate roof with ridge tiles
and gable ends. Gable end stack to right with rubble shaft, cornice and shaped top;
rear lateral stack to left with rebuilt brick shaft. The front wing to right has a
gable end stack to front with brick shaft; the rear wing has gable end stack to front
and rear with brick shaft. The C19 addition to rear right has hipped end roof with
Plant 2-room and through passage plan; the hall to left, heated from a rear lateral
stack and the lower end room to right, heated from a gable end stack. Although the
upper end wall of the hall is a stud partition, the rear wall shows the quoins
marking the original extent of the house. Circa mid C17, an L-plan wing was added to
front left; this contained a room at the upper end of the hall, and a second room,
probably a parlour, projecting as a front wing, heated from a front gable end stack.
At about the same time, an unheated outshut of one storey with loft, was added to the
rear of the lower end room, as a dairy; in late C20 this was reduced in height to
single storey. Circa early C18, a rear wing of 2-room plan was added to left; this
has a gable end to front and rear, with one room to front and rear, each room heated
from a gable end stack. At first floor, there is a small closet leading off the
front room of the rear wing. Circa early - mid C19, the room added at the upper end
of the hall was remodelled as a stair hall with an open-well stair. At about the
same time, an addition was made at the rear of the rear wing, in a n L-plan,
enclosing a small rear service courtyard; this is of one-room plan, heated from a
stack at the right end, and has a single storey range of sheds attached at the right
end. Circa mid - late C19, the original hall was remodelled, with the front window
probably enlarged, and an alcove created in the wall backing on to the passage to
right; the through passage remains, with the back of the alcove projecting into it.
Exterior: 2 storeys, asymmetrical 3-window front. Ground floor has C20 sashes, 16-
pane to left, 12-pane and 16-pane to right, with C19 4-panelled door second from
left. At first floor there are two late C19 6-pane sashes to left and C20 20-pane
sash to right. The front wing to left is 2-storey, with the inner side rendered; C20
16-pane sash at ground floor and C20 20-pane sash at first floor. The front gable
end has external stack and early C19 nowy-headed slate sundial fixed to the wall at
upper level. At the left side, the front wing has two buttresses; to left there is a
mid C19 stair light with round arch and margin glazing, with small gable over. To
left and stepped forward is the C18 wing, of 2 storeys; this is rendered. At ground
floor there is a small 2-light casement and first floor C19 margin-glazed sash with
gabled dormer over. To left there is a single storey lean-to in rubble; at the left
end a 4-pane casement at ground floor and C20 single light at first floor. The gable
end of the rear wing has external stack with curved oven at the base; C20 window at
first floor to left. The wing is built into the bank at the rear. The right end of
the main range has large external stack with small single storey privy attached; C20
2-light casement at first floor to right. To right is the dairy outshut, with hipped
end roof and door, C20 2-light window to rear and single light at the inner side.
The rear of the main house has the rear doorway to the passage, in granite, hollow-
chamfered,with 4-centred arch and butterfly-shaped carved stops, recessed spandrels
and dripstone, C19 4-panelled door. To right is the external stack to the hall.
The rear wing to right has a small single light at ground floor and a small single
light set into the corner at first floor lighting the closet; to right a C20 door and
C20 20-pane sash at ground floor, C19 16-pane sash at first floor. The rear wing is
returned by a 2-storey C19 addition, with C20 stable type door at ground floor and
20-pane sash, both with cambered stone arches; first floor has C20 20-pane sash and
4-squared pigeon holes with slate perches. The rear of this range is partly
roughcast. Attached to right by a short screen wall with a doorway, is a range of
single storey sheds with monopitch roof, in stone rubble and cob, the doorways facing
the service yard.
Interior: The through passage is granite paved, with C19 panelled partition wall to
right to the lower end room and stud partition wall to left to the hall. The hall is
ceiled, with mid C19 slate marbled chimneypiece. The lower end room has granite
paved floor and roughly hewn chamfered beams. The fireplace is in stone rubble with
cloam oven to rear left with cast iron door. There is a straight stair inserted in
the rear of the room. There is a doorway to rear, leading into the dairy, with one
mid C17 jamb remaining, ovolo-moulded with bar and scroll stop. The dairy has
granite paved floor and granite sink. The roof over the main range retains the main
trusses with dovetailed collars, halved and pegged at the apex of the principal
rafters; other members removed. The end room to left is the C19 stair hall, with
open-well stair with stick balusters and moulded handrail. In the front wing, the
room at ground floor retains half the granite surround for the C17 fireplace, which
has a 4-centred arch with recessed spandrels with roundels. At first floor, the room
in the front wing has early C19 2-panelled door with painted graining, and early C18
wooden bolection-moulded chimneypiece. In the rear wing, the room at ground floor
has C19 ceiling beams and C18 corner cupboard with shaped shelves; mantel over the
fireplace with shaped brackets. At first floor, the closet has 2-panelled door and
shelves. Both rooms at first floor have C19 4-panelled doors; the inner room has an
early C18 suspended plaster ceiling, with moulded cornice with modillions.
Remains of wallpaper were found in the house, showing scenes from nursery rhymes,
probably of early - mid C19.
