5/70 Bubhayne Farmhouse
- II
Farmhouse. Probably mid to late C17, extended and partially rebuilt by John Farrant
in 1897 (datestone). Roughcast rubble flint with some cob; gable end slate roof.
The original plan is not absolutely clear; probably a 4-room, cross passage plan
house, the service end to the left of the passage, and the principal room (or hall)
the middle of the 3 rooms to the right, heated by an axial stack that also serves
the lower-status room immediately to the right of the passage. Internal end stack
to service end. The right-hand room was partially rebuilt when the house was
extended in 1897. Both stacks with brick shafts. Winder stairs in turret at rear
of passage. 2 storeys.
Exterior. Front: 7-window range; all casement windows are C20. Gabled C19 porch
to passage. The right-hand corner has rusticated quoining. Rear retains 1 early
C19 3-light casement window, 8 leaded panes per light. Later C19 and C20 casements
Interior: the service end, divided into 2 smaller rooms (presumably kitchen and
dairy) by an axial partition (now dismantled; the mortices of the muntins are
visible on the axial ceiling beam); fireplace with stopped chamfered lintel. The
rear winder stair to the rear of the passage may retain early carpentry; there was
possibly a second similar stair forward of the main axial stack leading off the
principal room which has 3 chamfered cross ceiling beams with step stops. Roughly
chamfered cross ceiling beam to the room between hall and passage. 2 nice pieces of
late C17 joinery survive : a fielded panel door in the hall, and a cupboard in the
chamber above, with tripartite fielded panel front and a little cornice of turned
balusters (possibly not in-situ). Otherwise, C19 joinery, including internal
panelled shutters. C19 roof.
