II

Farmhouse. Probably mid C17. Extended and altered C18, with
alterations of mid - late C19 and C20. Slatestone and granite rubble ; C18 front in
red brick, in Flemish bond. Hipped slate roof with ridge tiles and stack at the
right end with granite ashlar stack and brick shaft. The rear wing ridge tiles and
stack at the right end with granite rubble, weathered, with a shaped top and C18
brick shaft.
Plan: Only the passage entrance and one room survives of the early house ; this is
probably an early wing, with the room heated from a gable end stack. There is a
doorway at the rear, concealed within a later lean-to. The early range faces east,
and may have been remodelled C. 1700, with surviving doorway ; in the mid C18, a new
house was built facing south. This is a 3-room plan range, with a large central
entrance hall and principal room to right end left. There is a rear lateral
corridor, with a stair hall at the rear right, possibly on the site of an original
passage ; at the right side, there is a door to the rear lateral corridor. The brick
axial stack in the main range may mark the left end of -early C18 phase. The
passage appears to incorporate a thick wall from the original building, with a
straight joint at the rear. The building forms an overall L-plan, with a later
single storey outshut along the rear of the C18 range and the inner side of the C17
range.
Exterior: The C18 front is 2-storey, a symmetrical 7-bay front on stone plinth with
brick band course. At first floor all windows are C19 4-pane sashes with segmental
brick arches. Ground floor has central doorway, with C20 window inserted ; C20 door
and 4-pane sash to right. Two 4-pane sashes to left. Alterations in progress at
time of survey (March 1987) to restore the C18 front door and window, to return to a
symmetrical front. At the right side, a doorway with granite pilasters, voussoirs
and cornice ; the granite plinth at this side is hollow-moulded, and higher than the
plinth at the front. At first floor 2 narrow C19 windows lighting the stair. Set
back to right is the C17 range, lower 2-storey ; the ground floor has 12-pane sash
with sidelights, first floor 2-light casement. To right is a buttress, and 2-light
casement at ground floor with timber lintel. The rear gable end of the C17 range has
granite quoins. Single storey outshut on the inner side, with C20 doors and
casements ; this continues along the rear of the C18 building. In the rear of the
C18 range is a straight joint, possibly marking the point where this incorporates
part of a early building. In the early range on the inner side, there is a blocked
doorway, with chamfered granite jambs and timber lintel ; this may have been the site
of an original doorway, which would have been against the stack. The C18 range has
C20 window at first floor to right and door with granite lintel to right. The left
side of the C18 range is in squared slatestone and granite rubble, blind.
Interior: The room in the C17 range is ceiled, with C20 fireplace at the gable end.
On the inner side of the room is a chamfered granite doorway with segmental arch;
plank door with strap hinges. The doorway at the right side of the C18 range has a
door with re-used fleur-de-lys strap hinges. The stair is open-well, of C19, with
stick balusters. At first floor, all doors are 3-panelled, of C18. The roof over
the early range of C19.
