Town Farmhouse


Farmhouse. C17 or earlier origins, C19 remodelling. Cob on stone rubble footings,
colourwashed and plastered. The C19 remodelling at the east end colourwashed stone
rubble brought to course with weatherboarding to the first floor. Slate roofs gabled
at ends, rendered stack at left end, C19 stone stack at left end of remodelled block.
The C17 3 room and passage plan probably had the hall stack backing on to the
passage. The passage and lower end have since been modified as a farmbuilding
adjoining at the left end. The hall projects out to the front at the right and is
now entered directly in the angle between the front wall and the projection. In the
C19 the inner room was rebuilt with a higher roofline but preserving an old doorway
between the C17 hall and the inner room. A rear right wing is also C19 and half-
hipped to the rear.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2:2-window front, the front elevation of the C19 remodelling
at the right (east) end flush with the front wall of the hall projection but with a
taller roofline. Colourwashed slate-hung stone porch with a pyramidal slate roof in
the angle of the hall projection which has a first floor gabled dormer. Fenestration
of the hall block 2- and 3-light casements, 2 panes per light. The C!9 4-pane sashes
and 1 ground floor C20 3-light window.
Interior The hall has exposed ceiling beams of large scantling. The C20 grate is
said to conceal an earlier fireplace with.granite jambs. 2 ovolo-moulded C17
doorframes, one with a good C17 batten and stud door. Roofspace not inspected but
may be of interest. Group value with the Church and Lower Farm (qv).
