5/195 Higher Boden Farmhouse and
- adjoining walls
Farmhouse and adjoining walls. Probably C18. Painted rubble and cob walls, slate
sills and oak lintels. Steep asbestos slate roofs with heightened eaves formerly
thatched, cast iron ogee gutters. Brick chimneys over gable ends plus a lateral
brick shaft over left hand rear wall.
Irregular L-shaped plan plus service wing at right angles to middle of rear,
probably all integral. The central spine is 2 rooms with entrance lobby and stair
between. The right hand room with gable stack is probably the hall/kitchen and the
left hand room probably an inner parlour with stack and window at the rear and with
the best parlour in the wing projecting at right angles in front. The unheated rear
wing built partly into the bank was probably the pantry/dairy. A further lean-to
room, probably C19, adjoins at the right hand side of the kitchen.
Two storeys. Regular 2 window south-east front with parlour wing projecting from
left hand side. Doorway towards angle with window over 4-panel door. Kitchen
window right and parlour windows to right hand (north-east) wall of wing are wider
than the windows over. Circa early C19 16-pane hornless sashes.
Interior not inspected.
Tall rubble wall with slate coping and clay ridge tiles encloses the garden at the
front. Slightly irregular plan due to circa early C19 alteration to align with
right hand wall of lean-to.
A granite cider crusher complete with wheel survives at the rear right hand side of
This house has an unusual plan but one which was designed for efficient function as
a farmhouse. Interior may be of interest.
