6/36 House c4m north-east of
Well Close Farmhouse


Former house, now used as store and adjoining stable with loft.
Mid C17. Ashlar rebuilt in rubble in places; red tile roof. 'L'-
shaped plan. 1½ storeys with basement under the house. Flat-
chamfered plinth. Twin-gabled entrance front. Three-light hollow-
chamfered stone-mullioned casement with stopped hood to the
basement, lower left; 4-light stone-mullioned casement with a
formerly continuous dripmould and ovolo-moulded mullions and
transom above, now blocked; the wall either side of these windows
has been rebuilt in coursed squared and dressed limestone. Two-
light stone-mullioned casements with hollow-moulded chamfers and
stopped hood to the gable. Eight stone steps up to a C20 plank
door within an ovolo-moulded surround; cambered lintel pierced by
ventilation holes forming a 4-petal flower. A moulded hood runs
over the doorway and for some distance either side, was formerly
part of a continuous dripmould. Plank door to the right of the
steps within a tall opening suggesting the use of this part for
stabling blocked with planking at the top. Left gable end: 2-light
hollow-chamfered stone-mullioned casement with a stopped hood to
the basement to the left of a plank door within a heavy-pegged
surround. :Four-light ovolo-moulded stone-mullioned casement with a
transom; two of the upper sections of the window retain their
leaded panes, continuous dripmould over; 3-light hollow-moulded
stone-mullioned casement with stopped hood to the attic, two lights
with leaded panes. Rear wall: large blocked opening, possibly
formerly a window; projecting stack with stone corbels at the base;
shaft removed above eaves level; small lean-to projection to the
left. Stable projects forwards to the left: single-width doorway
without door inserted in the west-facing wall; pitching window to
the gable end; small plank door in the east facing wall. Stepped
gable-end coping with roll-cross saddles to both parts.
Limited interior inspection: small Tudor-arched fireplace and
original beams and roof trusses. The impressive external
appearance of this house/stable having ashlar external walls where
easily visible contrasts with its size, the house having only a
single room on each floor.
