2/174 Old Farmhouse
-
GV II

Farmhouse, now used as farm building. Probably C17; probably abandoned as farmhouse
circa 1850, when a new farmhouse was built, with later alterations. Granite rubble,
with large granite quoins to left end, slate roof with ridge tiles and gable ends,
gable end stacks in granite with cornices and shaped tops, rear lateral brick stack
to hall.
Plan : 3-room and cross passage plan ; one room to left heated by gable end stack,
passage to right. The central room, to the right of the passage, appears to have
been originally unheated, with a rear lateral stack inserted at later date. The end
room to right, possibly originally a parlour, is heated by a gable end stack.
Possibly in the later C17/early C18, the front wall of the end room to right was
rebuilt, with a rough joint to the front; the stonework to the rear has no joint.
Probably at about the same time, a single storey unheated outshut was added to the
rear of the room to left, perhaps at the same time as the rear lateral stack was
inserted in the central room.
2 storeys, ground floor has door with timber lintel and slate weathering leading to
passage, with 2 pigeon holes above; room to left has 2-light casement at ground and
first floor. C20 single storey lean-to attached to right of door, with 2-light
casement above and blocked ground floor window to right with granite lintel. The
first floor windows have granite lintels. Rough joint to right, and end right room
has window opening at ground and first floor. Right gable end has external stack
with rubble oven at base; small single light at first floor to left with roughly hewn
granite jambs. Left gable end has external stack, and single light at ground floor
to right with slate weathering; blocked single light at first floor to right with
slate cill. To rear, there is a single storey rubble lean-to attached to right with
single light to left side. Rear of central room has brick stack rising from eaves
and window opening at ground floor with timber lintel; narrow single light to left
of stack under eaves. End room has ground floor window opening with heavy granite
lintel.
Interior Inaccessible at time of survey, 1986.
This building forms part of a good group around a farmyard, with the stable and the
threshing barn.
