SX 36 SE ST ERNEY Lantallack Farmhouse

3/5 II

Farmhouse, now house. Probably early to mid C17, with later C17 additions of dairy
and stair tower, re-oriented and extended in late C18, with C19 and C20 alterations
and additions. Slatestone rubble, front rendered, partly slate-hung and partly
painted. Slate roof with crested ridge tiles, hipped at right end and with gable end
to left and to rear wing, front rooms heated by rear lateral stacks, rear gable end
stack to rear wing.
Plan: originally a 3-room plan, with room to end left heated by gable end stack, 2
rooms to right heated by axial stack; it is not clear whether there was originally a
passage, possibly between the end room to left and the 2 rooms to right. In the
later C17, an unheated dairy of 1-room plan was added to the front of the end room to
right, and a stair tower was added in the angle to the main range. In the late C18,
the house was re-orientated, so that the right side became the front; the end right
room was incorporated as the principal front left room in the new range, and the
house was extended with a central entrance hall and rear stair hall, with parlour to
front right. The former axial stack became a rear lateral stack for the front room
to left, and the front room to right was heated by a rear lateral stack. The
original central room was paritioned to form a passage between the dairy and the
kitchen in the original left end room (now taking the position of a rear kitchen
wing) and a small rear parlour Via formed, heated from the original axial stack.
Probably also at this time, an addition was built around the stair tower, for a
salting room, adjacent to the dairy. Some alterations of C19 including re-roofing
of the front range, and a C20 addition to the right side of the kitchen.
Exterior: 2 storeys, symmetrical 3-bay front to right, with 1 bay (dairy) to left,
with modillion cornice across whole front. The 3 bays to the right have central 6-
panelled door with overlight with diamond glazing, plain pilasters and pediment. To
left, C19 8-pane sash with sidelights, to right C18 12-pane sash with sidelights.
First floor 12-pane sash with sidelights and central 16-pane sash. To left, the
dairy has 16-pane sash at ground and first floor. At the left side, the gable end
wall of the diary has ground floor 2-light C19 casement with segmental head; straight
joint to left to the salt room, which has a slurried slate roof, and 4-pane light to
left side. At upper level, the stair tower has a single light with C20 glazing. To
left, ground floor has two 2-light casements with flat heads, to left with a slate
dripstone, to right with brick segmental head. Slate string course between the
windows at lintel level. The right side of the late C18 building is slate-hung at
upper level. Rear of this is also slate-hung, external stack with brick shaft. The
late C18 stair tower projects, with pitched roof, also slate-hung, partly in asbestos
slate, with small store room underneath with door, 4-pane sash at first floor. The
right side of the rear wing is in painted rubble, with C19 4-pane sash and 2-light
casement at ground floor, two C20 windows at first floor. Attached to right, single
storey C20 addition with door to side and 2 windows in gable end. The rear gable end
of the wing has stepped external stack with curved oven at base and remains of slate
string course above oven.
Interior: The front entrance hall has dado panelling and a segmental arch to rear to
the stair well; dog-leg stair with scrolled string, moulded handrail and stick
balusters. Both front rooms have 6-panelled doors in moulded architraves. Front
right room has cornice with vases, beading, egg and dart and acanthus leaves;
panelled shutters to windows. Stair tower has newel stair. Small inner parlour has
dado panelling. Dairy has slate floor, slate shelves around the walls. Salting room
has trough and hooks in the ceiling. Kitchen has slate floor. The window in the
inner parlour may be the site of the original door.
Roof: 4 bays remain of the roof over the kitchen; the trusses remain under a later
roof. The principal rafters are halved and pegged, with collars pegged to the face
of the principals, trenches remaining for upper purlins; probably of the C18 phase of
