SY7083 SUTTON ROAD, Sutton Poyntz
873-1/9/524 (East side)
14/06/74 No.106
Northdown Farmhouse and attached
front boundary walls and outbuilding
(Formerly Listed as:
SUTTON ROAD, Sutton Poyntz
Northdown Farmhouse)


Farmhouse with attached outbuilding. Early C19, the
outbuilding possibly earlier. Coursed and squared stone,
rubble returns, some rendering, slate roof.
PLAN: a long single-depth range to the street, with small
extension, centre back, under swept-down roof, and later
parallel range to the left. At the left end is a long,
broad-span attached outbuilding, slightly set forward from the
main frontage.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, 1+3 windows, all replacement sashes with
internal 'bars' to double glazing, under wide splayed flush
stone lintels. In bay 3 is an arched opening with a 6-panel
door to radial fanlight. Raised coped gables, each with a
stack, and a further ridge stack towards the left. The right
gable is plain, and the back has various sashes.
INTERIOR not inspected.
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: outbuilding, possibly of earlier date
than the farmhouse, has good squared rubble to the street
front, and an asbestos-cement slate roof, half-hipped at the
outer end. A central wide opening with plank doors has brick
dressings and segmental head, with 3 small lights to the
right, and a plank door to timber lintel in a section slightly
set back at the junction with the farmhouse. The outer gable
has a 2-light small-pane casement, and a large sliding door.
The spacing of windows and stacks suggests that this may have
started as a 3-bay house, with a detached outbuilding, an
additional bay having then been inserted.
The loss of glazing-bar sashes has reduced the visual quality
of the building, but it remains significant, together with its
great barn and stable block (qv). At each end of the house
front a short length of stone wall rakes down to a square
rendered pier, with a low plinth wall, formerly railed, and
opening opposite the door.
