SX 78 NW
1/168 Great Sloncombe Farmhouse

Farmhouse. Probably C16 with C17 alterations probably C18 wing and modified in
C19. Granite rubble walls rendered at front and side. Slate roof, gable ended.
Granite block gable end stack to lower right end with dripmoulds and granite
capping. Projecting granite rubble lateral stack to rear with brick shaft.
Unusual plan and development. Appears originally to have been 3-room-and-through-
passage plan with screen at least on one side, probably both. At some stage in C17
the rear wall of the hall was built out slightly from the rest of the house and a
lateral stack added at the rear of the hall, probably with a staircase beside it.
Inner room unheated. Lower room was kitchen with gable end stack and adjoining
oven. At a subsequent stage, probably circa early C18 a wing was built at the
front of the inner room possibly for a dairy. In C19 rear of passage built out
flush with hall extension.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window front to main range with wing projecting from left
hand side with 1 window front to inner face. 1st floor windows all 2-light
probably late C19 casements with small panes. Ground floor window to left on main
range is 3-light late C19/early C20 casement with glazing bars. C20 plank door to
passage left of centre. To its right is 4-light granite mullion window with
moulded mullions and jambs, and hoodmould which has initials T and H carved in the
labels. Ground floor window to wing is 3-light with stanchion bars. In front of
the house, attached at the left end to the wing, is a granite rubble garden wall
with mounting block at the right hand side. At rear where the passage and hall
have been built out a wide shallow wing is formed with blocked round headed C19
granite arch to passage, unchamfered with projecting keystone. This now has small
single light window in it, above it is early C20 2-light casement. To the right of
this is single light stair window possibly in original position. Adjoining this to
the right is the projecting stack with another small single light window to its
other side. Attached to the right at the rear of the house is a granite rubble
outbuilding, projecting at right angles, arcaded at the front with intermediate
stone piers and shallow brick segmental arches. There is a cobbled yard at the
rear of the house, enclosed on the other 2 sides by further farm buildings.
Interior contains several features of interest. At the lower side of the passage
is a plank and muntin screen with chamfered muntins and simply moulded head beam.
The hall has a heavy chamfered cross beam with indistinct stops, plain joists, very
wide fireplace with wooden lintel, chamfered with worn stops. Solid wall at higher
end of hall with old oak door frame to inner room and similar one from inner room
to wing, neither are chamfered. Roof has apparently been renewed.
This is an unspoilt house with an interesting development and some good quality
