- II

Farmhouse. C16 or C17, with C19 additions. Solid, rendered walls of stone or cob.
Slated roofs with clay ridge-tiles; the right-hand rear wing has handmade ridge-
tiles with low crests. Main range has 3 ashlar granite chimneystacks with tapered
tops and thatch weatherings; one stack in each gable and one on ridge, off-centre
to left (heating the original hall). The hall stack has a larger cap than the rest
and looks older; both it and the left-hand stack have added brick shafts. 3-room
and cross-passage plan with stack backing on to passage; storeyed entrance-porch at
front. 2 rear ranges, probably later additions, at right-angles to hall and lower
end; the range behind the hall probably late C16 or C17, the other range (containing
the kitchen) late C19. The stack in right-hand gable has a strong projection and
has a further projection possibly designed for a staircase, on rear side. 2
storeys. 4-window front. Windows have C19 wood casements with old glass; most are
of 3 lights with 3 panes per light, but the 2 right-hand ground-storey windows are
of 2 lights with 4 panes per light. C19 6-panelled door, the 2 lowest panels flush;
2-pane fanlight. Gabled, solid-walled porch with stone seats on either side with
heavy wood tops and plank backs. Glazed door between the 2 right-hand ground storey
windows; 2 flush panels below, 4 glazed panes above, 2-pane fanlight. Walled
garden to right of porch has 2 pairs of C19 granite gateposts with ogee caps; the
pair nearest the porch have a contemporary round-arched gate of strip iron with
intersecting tracery in the head. Interior: present character mainly good quality mid C19, but fireplace in lower room
has a chamfered wood lintel disguised by a C19 surround. Gable-fireplace in second-
storey right-hand room has wooden chimneypiece of circa 1700 with bolection-moulded
architrave, pulvinated frieze and cornice; good mid C19 decorated cast-iron grate.
Roof of main range rebuilt late C19. Roof of rear wing behind hall probably late
C16 or C17 with plain principal rafters, notched at apex; disused mortices for
collars and threaded purlins. Early beams, fireplaces and possibly a screen likely
to be concealed under plaster. Farmyard, largely rebuilt in late C19 by H T Eve,
retains a barn with cob gable wall containing 2 slit windows, these having thick
rectangular wood frames.
