SX 17 SW
9/40 West Penstroda and garden walls to


House and garden walls to front. Circa early C17, possibly with earlier origins.
Granite ashlar and stone rubble with large granite quoins. Slate roof with gable
ends. Moulded granite parapet coping on right hand gable end with moulded granite
circa C17 end stack. Projecting stone rubble end stack with brick shaft on left hand
gable end.
Plan: Original plan uncertain and the house may have once been larger. The ground
slopes down to the left. 2 room and through passage plan with entrance porch near
centre. The interior was not accessible at time of survey (1986) although the owner
described a possibly C17 panelled screen on the right hand (higher) side of the
passage and panelling possibly reused around the stair which has probably been
inserted on the left hand side of the passage. Outshot containing dairy and back
kitchen added across rear in circa C18.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical possibly 2 or 3 window front, the left hand side
of the house covered in a vigorous growth of foliage. Single storey circa C17
granite porch with slate roof and chamfered segmental arch, possibly with diagonal
stops. Probably 3-light mullion window with hood mould to right and 16-pane sash
above. Left hand side not fully visible.
Interior: not accessible at time of survey.
Granite rubble garden wall to front with chamfered granite coping, ramped on the left
hand side wall.
An interior inspection is likely to reveal several interesting features to this
particularly unaltered and fine house which was probably built for a family of at
least Yeoman status.
