6/28 Upton Hall Farmhouse with attached
Farmhouse. Possibly,,late C17 origin, rebuilt in the late C18, with alterations of
mid C19 and some later alterations. Slateatone and granite rubble with granite
quoins; partly rendered. Slate roof with ridge tiles and gable ends; gable end
stack, in granite ashlar to right, slate-hung to left.
Plan: Originally a 2-room plan; re-oriented and rebuilt circa late C18, so the left
end room became the front left room, with a front passage and front right room; the
new front range is of 2-room plan with central entrance to passage, each room heated
by a gable end stack. Probably in the later C18, an outshut of one-room plan was
added to rear right, in the angle with the earlier range; at the time of the re-
orientation, the new front range was extended beyond the line of the original
building, to form an overall T-plan: at the left side, a wall was built to enclose
the rear of the garden, with niches which way have been bee-boles.
Exterior: 2 storeys, symmetrical 3-window front; at first floor, all C19 16-pane
sashes; ground floor has central half-glazed door with flat-roofed porch on plain
granite monolithic piers; to right a 12-pane sash with sidelights and cambered
granite head, to left a 16-pane sash with cambered granite head. Straight joint to
left of the window to left. Rubble wall attached to left, about 5 metres long, with
3 flat-headed niches, possibly bee-boles, with southerly orientation. The right side
has a granite ashlar stack rising from the slope of the outshut roof. Left side has
the gable end of the front range slate-hung; the rear wing is rendered, with 9-pane
casement at first floor. The gable end of the rear wing is also rendered, with C20
window at ground floor and large 16-pane sash at first floor. The rear of the
outshut has C20 window at ground floor, and raking dormer with 2-light casement;
there is a triangular projection in the wall at the junction with the early range, to
give access to the rear room.
Interior: The room to front right has a gable end fireplace with flat chamfered
granite lintel. This may have been re-sited, as the wall thickness is consistent
along what would have been the original front wall of the house.
