4/199 Fursdon Farmhouse
Farmhouse, now 2 houses. Probably early to mid C17, with additions of later C17 and
addition to rear of circa C19; alterations and division as 2 houses in C20. Painted
slatestone rubble. Slate roof with ridge tiles and gable ends; rear lateral hall
stack, axial stack to the upper end room and front lateral stack to the lower end.
Plan: Originally a 3-room and through passage plan. The lower end room is to left of
the passage; this appears to have been rebuilt circa C19, with a front lateral stack.
The hall is heated by a rear lateral stack, and circa later C17 had a hall bay built
to the front. The inner room, to right, is heated by an axial stack backing on to the
hall, and has a stair tower to rear; probably also in later C17, a small unheated
addition was made to the front of the inner room, possibly originally as a front bay,
but later used as a dairy. Circa C19, a 2-storey rear wing was added behind the
passage. This is heated by a stack to the right side, and partly enclosed the rear
lateral hall stack. The house has been divided so that the inner room to right forms
one house, the rest of the house is the main house.
Exterior: 2 storeys, asymmetrical 4-window range, with projecting hall bay to left of
centre and bay to the front of the inner room to right. The lower end to left has
door with glazed panel, 2-light casement above; front lateral stack. Wide gabled hall
bay with 2-light casement at ground and first floor. To right, the inner room has a
half-glazed door inserted, with single light and pitched hood on wooden pier; 2-light
casement above. Gabled bay projecting to end right with 3-light casement at ground
floor and 2-light casement at first floor. The left end is rendered, with 2-light
casement at ground and first floor. Right end blind. At the rear, the 2-storey wing
behind the passage is rendered, with 2-light casement at ground and first floor.
Single storey corrugated iron lean-to set in the angle between the wing and the lower
end. The rear of the upper end room has ground floor 3-light casement; projecting
stair tower with single light and 4-pane light, pitched roof.
Interior: Upper end room only inspected. Axial fireplace with granite jambs,
chamfered and stopped. Lintel covered. The rear stair tower has a stone newel stair
boxed in wood. The doorway to the stair tower has wooden frame, chamfered with run-
out stops. Both the inner room and the hall are ceiled.
