11/113 Bowling Green Farmhouse


Farmhouse, now house. c1700 on older site; altered and extended early C19
and mid-C20. Brick, partly handmade, on chamfered sandstone plinth; hipped
shallow-pitched slate roofs with overhanging eaves and rear stacks. Two
storeys and cellar, partly with three-course band between storeys. Three
bays; central bay is narrow and breaks forward slightly; windows have
cambered heads and moulded architraves; outer bays have 20-pane sashes on
ground floor and 16-pane sashes on first floor; central first floor window
replaced by C20 glazed double doors in enlarged opening. Central entrance
has square moulded flat canopy on slender tapered columns, wide panelled
pilasters, panelled reveals and soffit and half-glazed double doors. Above
the canopy is an ornate wrought iron balcony. Interior: noted as having
retained its C19 ceiling mouldings and dog-leg staircase. Adjoining the
left side elevations are the truncated remains of an original large external
chimney with offsets. Large range projects to rear left. The left and
central bay of the front range and the left part of the rear range is all
that survives of the older house. The right bay was added in the C19 to
provide a symmetrical front elevation and at the same time the roof was
altered and reduced in height and the rear range was extended. The farmhouse
was originally part of the Grafton Manor (qv) estate.
