5/17 Westbrook


Former farmhouse, subdivided into 3 tenancies. Circa late C16/early C17 with some
C20 modifications. Stone rubble and cob, whitewashed and rendered ; slate roof,
gabled at ends (formerly thatched) ; end stacks and axial stack to the main range,
end stacks to rear wings, axial stack at junction of main range and rear right wing.
Plan: U Plan with a 3 room and through passage main range, (lower end to the left,
hall stack backing on to passage) with rear left and right wings at right angles to
the main range. The rear left wing is domestic, the rear end of the right wing
formerly functioned as an outbuilding before domestic conversion. The house is
terraced into the slope of the land with steps down to the wings from the main range
and down from the rear courtyard to the level of the barn (q.v.) which forms the
fourth side of the courtyard and may originally have been part of the accommodation.
A single-storey lean-to adjoining the left end of the main range is probably C17
(mullioned window). The overall plan form indicates a complex high status house.
Exterior: Good survival of early external features with numerous late C16 and C17
windows, many with square leaded panes. 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front
with the front door to the passage to left of centre with a moulded doorframe and
plank and cover strip front door. Mullioned 3- and 4-light ground floor windows, the
hall and inner room windows with stone hoodmoulds and label stops. First floor
window left mullioned with square leaded panes, other first floor windows include 2
probably C18 casements with square leaded panes. The rear elevation has a moulded
doorframe to the rear passage door, plank and cover strip door and 1 first floor and
2 ground floor moulded mullioned windows. C17 windows to the courtyard elevation of
the rear left wing, C20 porch and door from wing into courtyard. Various C20
casements on the courtyard elevation of the rear right wing which is entered on the
side away from the courtyard. Steps and terrace walling from courtyard to rear
passage door and up into the courtyard between the wings are included in the listing.
Interior: Hall and inner room not inspected at time of survey (1986) but likely to
contain features of interest. The passage has a probably early C19 arched door into
the lower end room which has roughly-chamfered cross beams and a large kitchen
fireplace with a chamfered lintel. Chamfered stopped cross beams and an open
fireplace with a chamfered lintel to the rear left wing, chamfered scroll-stopped
cross beam to the front room of the rear right wing.
Roofspace not inspected at time of survey but early roof timbers may survive.
An important house with a wealth of late C16 and C17 features.
