Cheriton Farmhouse

(Formerly listed as Flays Farmhouse)


Farmhouse. Late C17 or C18, remodelled in the mid C19. Plastered cob on stone
rubble footings, the front is rebuilt with Flemish bond brick; stone rubble and brick
stacks topped with C19 brick; thatch roof gabled at north end and hipped at south end.
Plan: 3-room farmhouse facing west and built down the hillslope. Downhill at the
right (south) end is a large kitchen. Next to it is the dining room and an axial
stack between serves back-to-back fireplaces. Between the parlour and dining room
is an entrance lobby (or widened passage) and it contains the main staircase. The
left (north) end room is a parlour with a projecting gable-ended stack. Only
limited access to the interior was available at the time of this survey and is
hidden behind C19 plaster. Nevetheless it seems likely that the house is late C17
or C18. 2 storeys.
Exterior: irregular 4-window front of C19 casements with glazing bars, those on the
ground floor have low segmental brick arches over. The front doorway is left of
centre and it contains a part-glazed C19 6-panel door under a contemporary flat hood
with a shaped timber brackets.
Interior: shows mostly the results of the mid C19 modernisation and most of the
joinery dates from this time. The chamfered axial beam in the dining room is the
only hint of an earlier structure here. However the roof was not available for
inspection at the time of this survey. It might be earlier.
Cheriton Farmhouse has had little modernisation since the mid C19.
