- II

House. Originally farmhouse. Circa mid C17 with later C19/C20 additions. Local
stone rubble walls with some granite dressings. Gable ended slate roof. 3 rubble
stacks, one at right-hand gable end, one axial and one stack at gable end of wing.
Plan: originally had 2 rooms plan possibly with central passage. The right-hand
room was heated by a gable end stack, the left-hand room by an axial stack. In the
later C17 a 1-room wing was added in front of the left-hand room heated by a gable
end stack. In the C19 a large dairy was built at the left end of the original
house. Some internal alterations were made when the house was modernised in the
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2 window front with wing projecting from the left end which
also has 2 windows. The right-hand range has C19 2-light small-panel casements and
a C20 panelled door to the left. The wing has C20 1- and 2-light small paned
casements. Its 1st floor windows are dormers. Attached at the end of the wing is a
long c.mid C19 shippon which has a C20 glazed door to the right and a wide doorway
to its left with a dressed granite segmental arch. Loading hatch above and
ventilation slits.
Interior: the 3 C17 fireplaces survive, of varying forms. That in the right-hand
room has a chamfered wooden lintel, with probably hollow step stops. The central -
room fireplace is more elaborate with an ovolo-moulded wooden lintel and roll-
moulded granite jambs. The fireplace in the wing is granite framed and roughly
chamfered. The roof trusses are straight principals and relatively recent.
