2/98 West Raddon Farmhouse
Large farmhouse and adjoining cottage. Late C15 - early C16 with C16, C17, C18 and
C19 modernisations and extensions. Rendered cob and stone with some brickwork;
stone and brick stacks; slate roof (formerly thatch). Core of 3-room and through
passage plan. Inner room to west (left of front) rebuilt in C16 as cross wing
projecting front and rear with projecting lateral stack on left side. Volcanic
stone lateral stack projects to rear of hall (partly rebuilt in brick). Former
gable stack to right service room now divides main house from C18 partly - brick 1-
room cottage. Now 2 storeys throughout. 6 window front of uniform C19/C20 2-light
timber casements, 8 panes per light, with glazing bars. 6-panel door in centre
behind porch with slate monopitch roof. Cottage door on extreme right. Interior
largely result of late C18 and C19 modernisations, e.g. hall with boxed-in beams
and C19 wainscotting. Many early features must be hidden. Parlour wing is
probably C16 with deep-chamfered and stopped cross beams. Original volcanic stone
passage doorway (2-centred arch with moulded surround) has been reset in angle of
wings to rear. Roof renewed through but over hall and lower end the remains of
smoke-blackened, side-pegged, jointed cruck roof trusses survive, the tops cut off
below collar level. An important early farmhouse with many hidden features and
structural elements. Domesday manor. C16 home of Thomas Westcote who wrote Views
of Devonshire in 1567.
