5/16 Gonitor Farmhouse and adjoining
- buildings to north

- II

Farmhouse. Probably C17 but may incorporate earlier walling and extended and
altered. C18. Slatestone and cob with grouted scantle slate roof probably
originally thatched and brick chimneys. Originally 2 room plan with wide through
passage, early mid C18 wing to rear lower end and later C18 outshut filling angle
with early C19 buildings adjoining wing. 2 storey, 4 window front with 2 storey
contemporary porch off centre to right lower end. One wide ground floor C20 bow
window and 2 first floor sashes to left of porch. Ground floor window to right of
porch with window over both 20-pane sashes. 20-pane sash to first floor left has
pane dated 1754, straight joint evidence suggests that front was partly rebuilt
probably early early C18 to give 5 window front including one to porch, then altered
again later C18 and window (now blocked) inserted to left of porch. 2 blocked
ground floor windows to side walls of porch and window over central door. Roof has
gable with external splayed stack to left and roof hipped to right. Eaves raised
with cob probably C18. Wing retains sash window to first floor with heavy ovolo
moulded glazing bars probably early C18 with one-pane dated 177-. Reused sash of
similar age to rear. Interior: retains some chamfered and stopped ceiling beams to
upper end, and splayed fireplace with oven. Rounded recess in rear wall of lower
end room (probably original stair turret position), evidence for lateral hearth and
several 2-panel doors with HL hinges (one fielded) and cupboards with fielded
panelled doors. Stone buildings with scantle slate roofs to rear form 'U'-shape
with house partly enclosing cobbled courtyard. 2 storey building to north east
corner has hipped roof and brick dove holes under eaves. Piggery adjoins with
gothic brick arches to some openings. The C20 bay is not of merit, unlike the 20-
pane sashes.
