Farmhouse. Mid C17, altered C18 when passage was separated from house, rear kitchen
outshut probably also of C19, rewindowed C19 with C20 alterations. Slatestone and
granite rubble, upper end rendered and lined out. Slate roof with gable end stack to
right and ridge stack heating original hall; gable end stack to rear wing to right.
Originally through passage plan, open to shippon to left, with hall/kitchen to right;
there may have been no inner room. Upper end room probably a late C17 addition, its
front wall is stepped back slightly. The hall is heated by an axial stack backing on
to the passage, inner room by gable end stack. Probably in the C18, a kitchen
outshut was built with entrance from the rear of the hall, and at this time the
passage entrance was closed and a porch built to the front left of the hall. The
rear wing is probably of the mid C17 and may incorporate an earlier stair tower, with
access from the rear of the hall; it is of 1-room plan and was used as a cider store,
unheated at ground floor and with gable end stack heating only first floor room.
This has been partitioned in C20. The shippon has been raised in height.
2 storeys, shippon and passage to left, hall and inner room to right. Shippon has
front passage door with external steps to left leading to loft door above, 2 C20
casements at ground floor level to left. Upper end has three 2-light casements at
first floor, porch to left with pitched roof with half-glazed door, 2 C20 windows to
right, wall stepped back slightly from hall to inner room. Left gable end of shippon
has central door, granite ventilation slit above with timber member over, possibly
set at time of roof raising; roof hipped. To rear, 2-storey rear wing behind wall
has ground and first floor 2-light casement to outer side and gable end stack; single
storey kitchen outshut has stack to side. Rear of shippon has door remaining in
position of rear passage.
Interior Inner door in porch is 2-panelled with strap hinges. The hall fireplace
has flat chamfered granite lintel with granite jambs, slate floor. Door to rear wing
has frame cut back for passage of barrels. In rear wing, dog-leg stair set in
position of earlier stair, 2 blocked stair lights, recesses visible from inside only.
In rear wing, no evidence of any fireplace at ground floor, now partitioned to form
stair hall and end room. From hall, 2 steps up to inner room, with C19 vertical
boarding as dado panelling. In original passage, doorway to hall blocked to right,
passage appears to have been open to shippon end originally.
