6/10 Dowhills Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Circa early C18 with some C19 alterations but possibly a remodelling of
an earlier house. Stone rubble with a slate roof, gabled at ends; right end stack, 2
rear lateral stacks.
Plan: Single depth main range, 3 rooms wide with an entrance into a passage
containing the stair to right of centre. A fourth room at the left end is in use as
a store. The plan form suggests a house of pre 1700 but visible details are C18 or
C19. Rear lean-tos are probably C18 or C19 additions.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 8 window front with regular fenestration and a
remarkable pronounced curve on the front elevation to left of centre. C19 gabled
rustic porch of split logs to right of centre, additional doorways into right hand
room and into store room at left end. Louvred opening first floor left, adjacent
window a sash, other fenestration of probably C20 casement windows with glazing bars.
Interior: Large open fireplace at right end with bread oven, lintel replaced and
evidence of rebuilding of jambs; right hand room has deeply-chamfered cross beam with
runout stops. The other fireplaces are plain but earlier jambs and lintels may
survive, plain cross beams to 2 rooms to left of entrance, 1 diagonally positioned in
accordance with the curved front wall. Brick partition wall to left of stair is
probably C19. Some C18 joinery to the first floor. Alterations, including
reslating, in progress at time of survey (1986).
On a prominent corner site.
