Farmhouse, outbuildings and farmyard wall. Circa 1830s with circa mid C19 stable-
cartshed and byre wings and early C20 piggery. Granite rubble dressed granite front

hipped roof outbuildidngs, all with red clay ridge tiles. Red brick stacks over the
end walls of the house.
Plan: The plan of the original house has 2 principal rooms with an entrance cross-
passage between the 2 rooms, a shallow pantry behind the small parlour to the right;
the larger left hand room was probably the kitchen with a staircase boxed in against
the back wall. The kitchen is now in the rear wing which was added in circa mid C19
behind the right hand room. The wing contained a stable and cartshed with an open
end at the back and a hay loft above. Probably also in the mid C19 a single storey
byre was added to the left side of the house and in the early C20 a piggery was
built on the rear north east side of the yard at the back of the house.
Exterior: The house is 2 storeys with a symmetrical 3-window front of small circa
late C19 4-pane sashes with granite lintels and cills and a central doorway with a 4-
panel moulded door and a small C20 gabled brick porch. To the left the back wall of
the single storey byre which has a low hipped roof and a fixed 4-pane window. The
front of the byre facing the yard has a plank door to the left and a wide doorway to
the right.
The rear elevation of the house has an early C19 16-pane first floor sash and the
rear wing has a C19 horizontally sliding sash with glazing bars on the inside wall
next to the rear doorway and a flight of stone steps up to the loft doorway which has
a boarded door. The end of the rear wing is open with a cart shed on the ground
floor and a corrugated iron-clad loft above.
Interior: The right hand room has a pretty Victorian cast iron chimney-piece with a
cambered arch with a keyblock and decorated with roses and cherries. The left hand
room has a C20 chimney-piece in place of the old range; the staircase is boxed in at
the back of the room.
Including the detached piggery to the north east facing the farmyard; it is a long
rectangular building with agrouted scantle slate roof with red clay ridge tiles. It
has 5 doorways facing the yard, the right hand doorway is to the feeding passage
which runs along the back inside.
Also including the adjoining rear farmyard wall which fronts the road; it is
whitewashed granite rubble and has a pair of square section granite gate-piers to the
farmyard gateway.
