House. Mid to late C18, probably remodelled in the early C19. Early C20 alterations
and additions. Rendered, probably over stone rubble. Gable-ended scantle-slate
roof. Rendered end stacks.
Plan: Two-room central-entrance plan with integral end stacks (facing south-east).
Wing projecting at rear of left-hand end, also with integral end stack. Early C20
alterations included the addition of the verandah to the front (probably
incorporating some late C19 material), the widening of the ground-floor front windows
and the addition of a short wing to the west. Garden wall adjoining left-hand end of
house, enclosing roughly square kitchen garden. Two-storey house.
Exterior: Plinth, plat band and parapeted gable ends. Symmetrical 3-bay front; early
C19 sixteen-pane glazing bar sashes and ground-floor tripartite glazing bar sashes
(early C19 sixteen-pane sashes widened in the early C20), all with stone cills.
Central doorway has C19 five-panelled door with beaded wooden frame, semi-circular
overlight and staff-moulded reveals. C18 bolection-moulded stone sundial above door
(minus gnomon) with painted inscription (probably C20): "NOTHING MATTERS HALF/AS MUCH
AS YOU THINK IT DOES". Glazed lean-to verandah supported on fluted cast-iron columns
with scrolled captials and barleysugar twisted bases, and with low cast-iron railings
to front. Tall margin-light glazing bar sash to rear, lighting staircase.
Kitchen garden walls. Roughly squared stone rubble and cob. Wrought-iron gateway in
south side, with wooden lintel, and 2 gateways in right-hand (east) side, one with
boarded door.
Interior of house not inspected.
An old photograph (Beaford Archive), probably taken in the early C20, shows the house
before the alteration of the ground-floor windows and before the addition of the
verandah and the short wing to the left.
