PETER TAVY CUDLIPPTOWN

- Farmhouse at SX 522 788
Farmhouse. C17 origin much altered in C19. Granite and slate rubble walls. Slate
roof at 3 levels, lowest at left end where it is hipped, gabled at right end. 2
axial stacks - inserted one to left is rendered brick, right-hand one is rendered
rubble. Rubble stack at right gable end.
Plan: likely originally to have been longhouse and still preserves shippon at lower
left end, formerly with through-passage, hall and inner room to its right. In C19
passage was blocked and given a chimney stack separating shippon from house. Main
entrance then inserted into hall. A puzzling aspect of the plan is the lower
roof level wing at right angles projecting from the higher end, which contains
remains of early windows - either these have been re-used or it is a fragment of an
earlier building, which is now used for storage.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2 window front. lst floor windows and ground
floor. Left-hand window are circa late C19 2- and 3-light casements. The other
ground floor windows are mid C19 casements of 3 and 2 lights. Gabled brick and
glazed circa late C19 porch to left of centre. The shippon at the left end is
considerably lower with a wide opening on its front wall and has an outshut built
against its higher end. Projecting from the right-hand end is a lower wing, one of
whose windows has a 2-light granite mullion head and dripmould above. A similar
window head is built into the wall to its left. At the rear of the hall is a
rectangular stair projection.
Interior inaccessible at time of survey but believed to have been modernised in late
C19 or early C20 with earlier features covered up.
