House, formerly a farmhouse and adjoining shippon. Circa C17 or earlier remodelled
in C18 possibly 1772 when shippon was built. Granite and local metamorphic stone
rubble. Asbestos slate roof with gabled ends. Rendered gable end stacks with
tapered tops and slate weatherings. Probably a 3-room and through, or cross passage
plan originally, possibly the lower end originally a shippon which was rebuilt at
right angles (dated 1772), and stair hall formed between hall and inner room. It is
therefore now a 2-room plan with central stair hall with porch to front entrance,
and shippon converted into living accommodation. 2 storeys. 3-window range. C20
2 and 3-light casements with glazing bars. First floor 2 hipped half dormers.
Doorway slightly to left of centre with plank door and open-fronted granite porch
with slated raking roof. Reused stone in jambs of porch with illegible date and
initials. Large shippon dated 1772 projecting as cross wing at lower right-hand end
with hipped roof. Converted in C20 to extend living accommodation. Steps to former
loft doorway on inner face. End wall has doorway with date 1772 on jambs, at lower
ground level, with C20 oriel above. Interior: wide staircase hall with reused
fielded panel dado, later framed stairs at rear, and closely-spaced roughly
chamfered ceiling beams. Plastered stud partition to smaller left-hand room at
higher end with gable end fireplace with granite jambs, right-hand jambs has deep
chamber and timber lintel concealed by C20 hood. Solid wall between former hall and
stair hall. Step down to larger lower room, the former hall, with lower end fire-
place with monolithic granite jambs, later brick arch and oven in the back. Former
hall ceiling replaced in C20, but retains chamfered timber lintel to front window.
Roof: some of the earlier roof trusses over the higher end survive, with halved and
side-pegged apices.
