Farmhouse. C17 and late C19. Thin bedded slate-stone rubble, slate roofs to
clay tile ridges, stacks raised in brick. Was a 3-room cross-passage plan with
2-storey gabled porch and external stair turret. In late C19 the section to
left of porch rebuilt; also a range added parallel with main block at back, and
wing at right angles, back right. Two storeys: to left of porch a 2-light case-
ment over French doors, both to brick segmental arches. Wavy bargeboard. Porch
has 2-light casement above plain string course over arched opening with small
hollow mould edge; to the right are two 3-light casements and a French door,
formerly also a casement. First floor has three 3-light casements with glazing
bars. The right return, built into the slopes of the churchyard, is plain, with
a big stone stack raised in brick; the corner is in part corbelled out. The
back wing joins at ridge level to show a half gable. The left end returns plain
to a gable with wavy bargeboard and small brick stack. Ridge stack to right of
cross-passage. At the back the curved wall of the stair turret has a small
deep-set 2-light casement, wing has a 16-pane sash over 3-light casement to wood
lintel, a 2-light, and plank door; to right a 3-light glazing bar casement over
2-light with horizontal bars. Interior: stone floor to cross-passage, now
blocked at the back; inner door to porch has basket-handle, arch is plank and
fillet with nail-head. Parlour to right has 3 boxed beams, and in cross
corridor is a cupboard recess with fluted pilasters and Greek key embellish-
ment. Heavy transverse beam also to kitchen. Early stair is big spiral, in
wood; at its top is a peaked-head doorway into the corridor. The Victorian
addition has a straight stair with heavy newels, running parallel with back
wall. Roof trusses in the early section are pegged, with cambered ties, and
unusually close-spaced. An early photograph in the house shows the building
before the Victorian transformation, when there was a tripartite sash to the
left of the porch. The farm is in an important position on the approach to the
Church of St Andrew (q.v.).
