House. Probably C16 or earlier, remodelled in C18 and with some C19
alterations. Roughcast stone rubble and possibly some cob. Plain tile roof
with hipped ends, lower left end has lower eaves. Rendered axial and 2 rear
lateral stacks with slate weathering and yellow clay louvred pots.
Plan and Development: Probably originally a 2 or 3 room plan, the lower
(east) room to the left is divided axially with a kitchen at the back heated
from a rear lateral stack and an outhouse at the front with a front doorway;
there is a short cross-passage from the front to the kitchen. The hall's
axial stack backs on to the kitchen and passage. There might have been an
inner room heated from the rear lateral stack at the upper end. In the C18
the house was extensively remodelled and extended by one unheated room at
the higher right end. The putative inner room was divided to form a small
Parlour at the back and a small entrance hall at the front, from which a
straight staircase rises to the right. An axial passage partitioned from
the front of the former hall leads from the new entrance hall to the lower
left end. This axial passage is lined with cupboards at the front. The
eaves were raised and the roof entirely rebuilt also in the C18.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Long asymmetrical 3-window north-front with C19 and
C20 2-light casements with glazing bars. Doorway to right of centre with
C19 flush panel and glazed door and C19 wooden lattice porch. Doorway
towards left end and wider doorway to its left, both have C19 plank doors.
Left hand (east) end wall has 2 C20 casements with glazing bars and slate
sills. Right hand end has circa late C19 casement on first floor and 2
other C20 casements and mounting block. The rear (south) elevation is
asymmetrical, breaks forward on left by lateral stack and another lateral
stack on right. Circa late C18 or early Cl9 2 and 3-light casements with
small panes.
Interior: Much of the C18 and early C19 joinery survives. Good set of 2-
panel doors in partitions around entrance hall. Parlour behind has small
C19 chimneypiece. Cl9 fitted cupboards in axial passage. Panelled window
shutters of early C19. Kitchen at lower end has fireplace with brackets to
mantle shelf. Straight staircase has shaped split balusters to balustrade
at top. First floor has complete set of C18 fielded 2-panel doors and good
dentilled chimneypiece in hall chamber.
Roof: Is circa C18 with halved lapped and pegged collars on face of
straight principals. Remaining blade of truss by hall stack might be
