3/39 Farmbuilding adjoining to rear
- (north-east) of Home Farmhouse


Large range of dairy farmbuildings. Circa 1840. Torquay limestone with brick
dressings; slate roof.
The buildings are arranged round 2 courtyards behind Home Farmhouse (q.v.). The
farmhouse forms the south-western side with its service block returning round the
first courtyard. The service block is continued as a dairy to meet the large
milking parlour which separates the 2 courtyards. A low range of stables forms the
outer (north-western) wing of the first courtyard. The second courtyard is
surrounded by stalls, mostly with haylofts over. This courtyard apparently once
contained a central open pen.
The style throughout is consistent. The original windows (and most still survive)
have segmental arches over and the main entrance arches and loading hatches have 2-
centred arch heads. Both sides of the milking parlour have symmetrical 5-window
fronts with louvred ventilators over and central gabled loading hatches. The south-
eastern side contains a series of 8 mostly original windows interrupted by large
archways to each of the courtyards. The middle the gable end of the milking parlour
contains a doorway enlarged in the C20, a loading hatch above and at the very top a
loading winch protected by an extension of the roof and flanked by narrow
ventilators. At the right end another gable contains a tall rectangular loading
hatch and the hipped roof is interrupted by a louvred gablet. The 6-window north-
east front includes a gabled loading hatch. On the north-west side the long ranges
are only single storeyed which emphasises the height of the gable-ended crosswings.
On the left the gable top has a series of tall and narrow brick ventilators. The
milking parlour roof is hipped but the middle part breaks forward with a gable
containing more narrow brick ventilators over a loading hatch and ground floor
Interiors are largely original and there are king post roof trusses throughout. The
dairy and milking parlour are lined with glazed white ceramic tiles.
These farmbuildings with their gabled elevations are very attractive even from a
distance, particularly over the rolling parkland of Farringdon House to the north-
