4/164 Nancegollan House adjoining
- entrance gateway walls and gate

House, possibly an account house with farmhouse added, adjoining entrance gateway
walls and gate piers. Circa early C19. Painted killas walls with dressed granite
quoins, sills and lintels, granite ashlar entrance bay. Hipped scantle slate roof
over the original part with brick chimneys over the front wall and lower hipped
asbestos slate roof over the farmhouse addition with brick chimney over one side
wall. Cast-iron ogee gutters.
2 bay deep plan, 2 rooms wide with 2 rooms wide farmhouse added back to back at the
rear. Through or cross passage between linked to axial passage to doorway in the
left hand (east) side of the farmhouse. The disposition of chimneys suggests that
only the front of the original part was heated and that possibly the 1st floor rooms
were, or possibly still are, the full depth, and if this was an account house were
used as offices or for board meetings. Now all one house.
2 storeys. 3 bay 1 window north entrance front, the central entrance bay is a
centrepiece of granite ashlar, slightly broken forward, with plinth, mid-floor
string, and surmounted by an open pediment with the round fanlight head of a tall
original sash window within the tympanum. Wide central doorway with pair of 3-panel
doors to resemble a 6-panel door, the bottom panels flush beaded, the next panels
fielded, the top panels glazed and a rectangular overlight with spoked marginal
panes. The flanking bays are blind except for a 2-light casement at ground floor
left. The left hand 2 window side wall has original ground and 1st floor 16-pane
sashes towards the rear, smaller opening with horizontal sliding sash towards the
front and later 4-pane sash replacement over. The symmetrical 2 window right hand
wall, overlooking the approach lane, has 3 tall ground floor window and 2 smaller
closer spaced 1st floor windows. All original 12-pane hornless sashes except ground
floor left horned copy. Ground and 1st floor windows, far right, are in the side
wall of the later part. There is no straight joint between the 2 parts on this side
of the house probably because the original rear corner was rebuilt to construct the
The rear is really the farmhouse front. A symmetrical 3 window front with central
doorway, shallow brick arches over the openings, granite sills, original 16-pane
hornless sashes and C20 glazed double doors.
Interior not inspected, but an internal inspection would help to understand the piano
There are several other interesting 'count' houses in this parish and they are
