2/91 Halbathick Farmhouse
Farmhouse, disused. Probably early C17, partly rebuilt later C17, slightly
remodelled circa mid C19. Stone rubble walls with some granite dressings; dry
Delabole slate roofs with gable ends including rear stair wing and sweeping lower at
rear right; original rubble stacks over cross wall towards right and over right-hand
end. 3-room and through-passage plan with lower end (left) roofless following a
fire and now partly ruinous; plus late C17 stair wing behind deeper central hall and
integral pantry outshut behind parlour on right. Later shallow wash house with
copper, now ruinous, in front of lower end. 2 storeys. Irregular 2-window east
range has slightly projecting central hall front with wide drip mould of former hall
window, rebuilt under and to left circa mid C19 and with 16-pane 2-light casement.
Above former hall window is an early C19 2-light casement with 5 horizontal glazing
bars to left-hand light and later casement with 4 horizontal bars on its right.
Parlour front, partly rebuilt circa mid C19, has doorway towards left with ledged
door, small window with horizontal glazing bar in partly blocked tall opening and
16-pane 2-light casement on the right, both windows with iron stanchions; 12-pane
2-light casement to 1st floor, middle and head or sill of 2-light C17 mullioned
window reused as quoin on right; rear of stair wing has later window to gable end
but 2 blocked window openings in the left hand angle. Projection to right-hand
gable is probably an oven. Studwork partitions of hall/chamber to through passage
are sheeted over with corrugated iron. Interior: retains many original C17 features
including: flat-chamfered granite fireplace to hall, hollow-chamfered_one to parlour
and hearthstone of probable C17 fireplace to chamber above parlour; plastered hall
ceiling and plaster chamber ceilings with feet of probable C17 trusses visible;
ovolo-moulded doorframe between hall and parlour and dog-leg stair with unusually
wide upper flight and turned balustrade to landing. Also some C19 features
including parlour ceiling joists and late C19 iron grate to chamber over parlour.
Keeping places at parlour end are probably original. Lying near the front are
probable former doorway with chamfered jambs and ball stops. Halbalthick is an
interesting example of C17 plan development and except for the partial loss of its
lower end has been unaltered since the C19.
