1/44 Pitt Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C17, considerably altered probably in C19. Rubble walls rendered at
rear. 2 tall rubble stacks, one at left gable end and lateral stack at front, both
have dripcourses. Slate roof to house, corrugated iron to attached barn, gabled at
either end.
Originally probably 3-room and through/cross passage plan, possibly screens passage,
with front lateral fireplace to hall and inner room heated by gable end stack. At
some stage right-hand lower end was converted into barn.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front with mid C20 metal frame casements of 1 and
2 lights on first floor and 2 late C20 wood casements to ground floor with diamond
'leaded' panes, 3-light to left, 2-light to centre. C20 concrete and glazed leanto
porch to right of centre and to its right is plank door to barn.
Interior: hall fireplace has chamfered, slightly cambered, wooden, lintel with
hollow step stops. Chamfered cross beam with bar and hollow step stops. At lower
end of hall is another beam which has had a wall inserted beneath it and the same
has happened at the lower side of the passage suggesting that there were originally
screens there. In the barn below the passage it can be seen that the dividing wall
is cement blocks. The barn has 3 heavy cross beams roughly chamfered, one of which
rests on a chamfered wooden corbel at the front.
