1/201 Clowance Barton Farmhouse

Farmhouse. Circa late C19, extended late C19. Coursed dressed granite and dressed
killas brought to course, dressed granite quoins, chamfered jambstones and lintels.
Gabled dry Delabole slate roofs with gable, axial and lateral chimneys. Projecting
eaves and verges with shaped wooden barge boards. Crested red clay ridge tiles.
Single depth plan: originally shallow E-shaped plus service wing at right angles
behind the right hand side. The E-shaped 3 room front has shallow gable-ended bays
at either side and in the middle a single storey porch projecting farther. Behind
the porch is presumably an axial passage; the room behind this passage is heated by a
rear lateral stack. Probably slightly later a 1 room plan extension was made to the
service wing at right angles to the rear right hand side. Circa late C19 another
service wing was added behind the left hand room plus a stair in the angle and the
front of the house was extended by 2 bays (entrance hall and living room) in similar
style with the left hand bay with gabled projection at the front. This addition was
probably to provide self-contained separate accommodation. There is a circa late C19
single storey range of outbuildings adjoining at the rear of the original service
2 storeys. Symmetrical 1:1:1 bay original front, right, and 1:1 bay addition in
similar style, left. The original front has a single storey gable-ended porch and at
either side is a shallow gabled-ended 2-storey projection. The porch has a central
doorway with double partly glazed doors and the tall windows over breaks the eaves
and has a stone gable. Except for this narrower window over the door, with single 4-
pane horned sash, all the windows are in wide openings with circa late C19 paired 4-
pane horned sashes. The addition, left, has 2-storey gable-ended projection far
left, and gable-ended porch, right, remodelled in the C20. The masonry of the
original part is coursed and the masonry of the addition is brought to course. All
the gables, both front, rear and ends, have projecting verges with shaped wooden
barge boards.
The other elevations are rubble with granite dressings and retain their circa late
C19 horned sashes.
Interior not inspected.
This principal farmhouse on the Clowance estate is attractive on all elevations and
virtually unaltered since circa the late C19.
