garden walls

- II

Farmhouse. C17, remodelled in the C18, C19 and C20. Granite and elvan rubble with
granite dressings.
L-plan main roof with 2 dressed granite stacks over the gable ends and brick axial
stack near the ridge angle.
Plan: overall irregular U-shaped plan plus stair outshut filling most of the space
between the short arm of the U and the main front range. In the late C17 or early
C18 the plan was probably 2 large reception rooms at the front with central cross
passage leading to stair hall between (passage towards left since circa early C19)
and with circa late C17 kitchen wing behind the left hand room and later C18 wing
dairy returning from the rear right of the kitchen parallel to the main range. In
the C19 the kitchen wing was divided to make a 2 room plan, a doorway and extra
windows inserted in the left hand wall (facing a planned farmyard), the dairy wing
roof was heightened and a lean-to was added to the right hand gable end.
Exterior : 2 storeys. Slightly irregular 3 window south-south-east front partly
rebuilt in the C19. Probably in the C18 a symmetrical 5 window front with central
doorway. Present doorway towards left and fitted with circa early C19 6-panel door
with flush-beaded panels (except 2 later glazed top panels) and overlight. Circa
early C19 12-pane hornless sash to first floor left of middle otherwise 12-pane
horned copies. Straight joint to first floor left and irregular joints around
putative original doorway position and flanking the right hand windows are clues to
interpreting the form of the earlier but not necessarily original front.
The left hand side wall also has various joints of former alterations to create a 3
window front with a doorway towards the left. C19 4-panel door with 4-pane overlight
and horned sashes.
Interior not inspected but the right-hand room has some fielded panelling and an
elaborate chimneypiece in C18 style with paired columns and a hunting scene carved in
the frieze.
