9/270 Higher Sutton Town Farmhouse

Farmhouse. Circa late C17 with C18 and C19 extensions. Rendered and painted stone
rubble and cob. Thatched roof with hipped ends, the thatch continued down over an
outshut extension on the left hand end. Rag slate roof to single storey lean-to
outshut across rear. Brick shaft to axial stack on left and stone rubble end stack
on right.
Plan: Three room and cross or through passage plan with ground sloping down gently on
right. Entrance near centre with circa C20 framed stair inserted in passage. Larger
hall-kitchen on higher left hand side of passage, heated by end stack. Small
unheated room on lower right hand side of passage, probably originally a dairy with
small, possibly parlour beyond to right, heated by end stack. This arrangement
appears to be original and there are stone rubble cross walls up to first floor
level, on the higher left hand side of the passage and between the unheated room and
parlour to right. Circa C18 or C19 single storey service outshut added across rear
and circa C19 lean-to extension added on left hand end.
Exterior: Two storeys. Regular 1:3 window front with C20 windows in slightly widened
openings. C19 part glazed door with Cl9 or C20 porch near centre, flanked by two C20
windows. Three C20 windows on first floor. Circa C19 extension on left with C20
windows on ground and first floor. The thatched roof has been continued down over
the left hand end to about 1 metre above ground level.
Interior: Heavy unmoulded closely set floor joists in hall-kitchen. Other ceilings
plastered. Fireplaces blocked by later grates.
Only hall-kitchen and passage inspected at time of survey (1987).
