SX 29 SE
House now farmhouse. Circa early C17, possibly with earlier origins. Rendered
probably stone rubble with ashlar quoins with granite dressings. Asbestos slate and
slate roofs with gable ends. Projecting front lateral hall stack and rendered axial
stack. Rendered end stacks.
Plan: Original plan uncertain. The house is of overall 'L' shaped plan with
entrance to left of centre and ground sloping down to left. Hall heated by front
lateral hall stack; inner room to right heated by axial stack and cross wing at lower
end on left, projecting to rear only heated by end stacks. The service cross wing
apears to have been remodelled in the mid C19 to form a new main elevation with
central entrance flanked by 2 rooms. Circa C18 or C19 service outshut extended
across rear of main range. It is possible that the house may originally have been
larger, possibly having a cross wing above the hall to form either an overall 'U'
shaped plan or even an 'H' shaped plan.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Ground sloping down to left. Asymmetrical 4-window front.
The C20 ground floor windows in earlier openings and entrance to left of centre.
Gable end to front on right and left and moulded string to first floor on left.
Projecting front lateral hall stack with entrance to left; C20 door in granite
surround, the jambs roll moulded and the lintel chamfered; 3-light mullion hall
window to right and granite surrounds to probably 2-light mullion windows with hood
moulds to far right. First floor has brick segmental arches to the 3 opening which
formerly contained sashes and 2-light mullion window to right with hood mould. The
left hand side elevation was probably remodelled or rebuilt in the mid C19 with a
regular 3-window front. C20 door flanked by two C20 P.V.C. windows on ground floor
and 3 above.
Interior: Not accessible at time of survey (1987). The interior features appear to
have been largely covered over in the C19 and late C20. The owner states that the
roof structure retains its original trusses and that there is evidence that there was
a cross wing extending to the front on the higher side of the hall.
