4/125 Clowance Farmhouse and Stile

Small farmhouse with integral barn and stile with gate pier. Circa early C19.
Killas rubble with dressed granite quoins, jambstones, sills and lintels. Three
quarter hipped grouted scantle slate roof with brick chimney over left hand side wall
and brick chimney over central cross wall.
Plan: house, left, and barn, right, of equal size, rectangular overall and each part
roughly square with cross wall between. The house is partitioned to form shallow
rear pantry, left, and stair hall at rear right. The front is 2 rooms,
kitchen/living room left and small parlour right. The left hand room window was
originally a doorway and it is possible that the ground floor was originally stabling
with groom's accommodation over the left hand part and fodder storage over the right
hand part, the left hand ground floor converted to form extra domestic accommodation
later in the C19.
There is a later lean-to cartshed incorporating a dovecote behind the barn and a
straight flight of granite steps in the angle between this and the house the steps
leading to a doorway (opposite a front first floor loading doorway) towards the left
hand side of the barn. Adjoining the right hand end of the barn is a granite grid
stile with a dressed granite wall with integral square gate pier forming the entrance
gateway to the farmyard.
2 storeys. Overall regular 4-bay west front. Original ground and first floor
openings to each bay except that the former ground floor left hand doorway is now a
window and the window to the right of this was at some time converted to a doorway
but later restored as a window. Some deepened sills.
Originally a nearly symmetrical front with doorways towards ground floor left and
right the symmetry only broken by the right hand part having a loading (or winnowing)
doorway in its left hand bay. 4-pane horned sashes in the house front left. An
original 12-pane 2-light casement (with some glazing bars missing) survives in the
3rd from left ground floor opening. Old ledged doors.
Rear has 2 original window openings immediately opposite those at the front, left.
Interior has original floors and king post roof structure.
An unusual early C19 building type and virtually unaltered since the C19.
