3/63 Carnsew Farmhouse including
- adjoining front garden wall
Farmhouse including adjoining front garden wall. C17 or possibly earlier, extended
in the C19, partly rebuilt in the C20. Granite ashlar and granite rubble with
granite dressings; stucco to left-hand (front) wall of rear kitchen wing. Steep
concrete tile roof. Large granite rubble stacks, over the original gable ends and a
lateral stack over the right hand wall of the rear wing.
Plan: Irregular plan. Original 2-room-plan farmhouse with contemporary or C17
kitchen wing at right angles behind the right-hand room. C19 single-storey service
range returning parallel to rear of house. In circa the 1960s a C17 or earlier range
on the right was demolished and a new house has been built on approximately the same
site. Rear wall and left-hand gable end of the house were partly rebuilt probably in
the C18.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Nearly symmetrical 3-window south-east front with doorway
slightly left of middle. C17 (or possibly older) 4-centred arched chamfered doorway
within C17 open porch with settles and chamfered granite piers. 3-light chamfered
mulllioned window left of doorway. Other openings are probably C18, or C17 with
mullioned window removed, except on the right where the wall has been partly rebuilt
in the C20. Under the eaves are large oak brackets which possibly survive from the
original 9-bay roof structure. Adjoining the front left-hand corner is an old rubble
garden wall with dressed granite copings.
Interior: Simple interior largely unaltered since the C18. Granite flags to most of
the ground floor. Probably original chamfered hardwood beams in right-hnad room
(stops not visible); C18 straight flight stair; three C18 2-panel doors; C18 chimney-
piece in left-hand chamber, and C18 roof structure with pegged tie beams and apices.
