5/118 Vellenewson Farmhouse, adjoining
- outbuildings and garden walls to
the front

Farmhouse adjoining outbuildings and garden walls to the front. Circa late C18
incorporating an earlier core. Painted roughly coursed granite moorstone with
dressed granite quoins, sills, jambstones and lintels. Grouted scantle slate roofs
with gable ends; brick chimneys over gable ends of house including rear wing with
external stack; cast iron ogee gutters.
Plan : part of very thick back wall and possibly left hand end wall of earlier house
rebuilt circa late C18 as 2 room house, slightly larger kitchen, left, and parlour,
right, with cross passage between leading to stair. Probably circa early C19, a back
kitchen wing was built at right angles behind the kitchen/living room;. later in the
C19 a 2 storey outbuilding (granary or apple loft) was added at the right hand side of
the house with front wall set back and a single storey stable was built at the left
hand side of the back kitchen. The rear of the house and the extensions are built
into a high bank.
2 storeys. Nearly symmetrical 3 window south-east front with doorway and window over
slightly right of middle. Possibly original 6-panel door with flush-beaded bottom
panels and later glazed top panels. The weatherings of a gable-ended porch or hood
survive over the doorway. The ground floor left hand window is a possibly original
20-pane hornless sash; the other windows are later hornless sashes with 6 or 8 panes,
all in original openings. Adjoining at the right hand side of the house is a lower
2-storey outbuilding slightly set back doorway at far left, central window and wider
loading doorway over. There is also a loading doorway at the rear leading straight
in at 1st floor level from the bank.
Interior : little altered since the C19, plan and structure complete. Bowtell
moulded beams in the left hand room. The front garden wall is a rubble and earth
hedge with unhewn painted granite monolith gate piers. The gateway, aligned with the
front doorway, has a C19 wrought iron gate with ramped top rail.
Vellenewson is a substantially complete C18 farmhouse, rebuilt on an older site, and
in an unusually unaltered condition since the C19.
