(Formerly listed as Cattespool
23.4.52 Farmhouse)


House. c1640, extended late C17 with some late C20 restoration. Timber-
frame with rendered infill on sandstone plinth, extended in ashlar with
tile roof. H-plan, lateral stack to hall range (aligned east/west), through-
passage to west end. South front: two storeys, with attics to wings lit by
2-light casements; first floor: three windows: 4-light and 3-light casements,
4-light square oriel to right; ground floor: mainly 4-light casements,
entrance to left of hall range through lean-to timber-framed porch with
C17 door; ashlar extension to left is of one storey with attic lit by a
gabled dormer. Framing: unpainted, three square panels high with straight
tension braces to first floor, close-studding to ground floor. Interior:
numerous exposed ceiling beams chamfered and stopped; fireplaces with stone
lintels; a number of windows retain C17 sliding shutters. It is very
unusual in this area for a house such as this to have retained the untreated
texture of the framing. (BoE, p 277; Stephen Price, "Standing Buildings in the
