SX 27 SW
5/52 Carkeet Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Dated M & ND 1846, with few later alterations. Granite rubble, partly
slate-hung, with granite dressings. Slate roof with lead ridge coping and gable
ends; gable end stacks with rubble shaft and slate cornices.
Plan: Double depth plan, with central entrance to front through portico to passage;
principal room to front left and right, each heated by gable end stack. Shallow
service rooms to rear, the kitchen to left and an unheated dairy to right. Attached
to rear left, a single storey one-room plan scullery/wash house with gable end stack.
Attached to left side, an integral outshut with a screen wall at the left end,
separating the garden to the front from the farmyard at the rear.
Exterior: 2 storeys, symmetrical 3-window front, slate-hung from ground floor cill
level. First floor has 16-pane sashes, granite datestone between the 2 windows to
right. Ground floor has central granite portico, with plain piers, cornice and
blocking course, inner half-glazed door; 16-pane sash to right and 24-pane sash to
left. Attached to left, integral outshut of one storey with loft, with 16-pane sash
at ground and first floor. To end left, a rubble screen wall about 3 metres high and
about 5 metres long, with plain door with granite lintel; single storey privy
attached to end left. Right side has single storey rubble lean-to along whole side,
as an open-fronted cart shed, of 3 bays, with 4 granite monolith piers, partly slate
and partly corrugated iron roof. The rear has central gabled porch with plain door;
2-light casement to left to dairy and 16-pane sash to right of the kitchen. First
floor has 16-pane sash to right and left and 12-pane sash off-centre to left as stair
light. Attached to right, the single storey scullery/wash house, with wide opening
to inner side, giving access to the rear door to the outshut.
Interior: Not inspected.
This is a very good example to a planned mid C19 farmhouse, of the period of the
colonisation of Bodmin Moor. There is an enclosed garden to the front with monkey-
puzzle tree and farmyard to rear, and the status of the rooms is indicated by the
fenestration, a casement for the dairy as opposed to a sash for the kitchen. The
front left room was probably the best room, with the larger sash. This was a period
of reclamation of the moor; the fields to the rear of the farmhouse are enclosed by
rubble walls.
