783-1/1/16 (East side)
25/06/73 Stannanaught Farmhouse


Farmhouse, now house. Dated 1714 at 1st floor; altered.
Coursed sandstone rubble, graduated stone slate roof. L-plan
formed by a single-depth 3-unit baffle-entry main range with a
receding crosswing to the right and an added outshut in the
angle. Two storeys and 3 windows; doorway to left of the
centre bay, with a thin lintel, set-in wooden doorcase and
board door, and above the door a moulded datestone lettered
1714/ R.S.S.; wooden cross-window sliding sashes at ground
floor, small-paned 2-light sliding sashes at 1st floor (except
that in centre which is altered), and a cross-window to the
staircase between the 2nd and 3rd. Ridge chimney in line with
door. Rear has some similar sliding sashed windows. INTERIOR:
private survey in 1987 recorded a baffle entry with timber
spere to the housepart and traces of former firewindow in the
former rear wall (but no surviving evidence of an inglenook
bressumer); parlour in rear of wing, with fireplace, and
another fireplace in chamber above; and good contemporary
staircase with closed string, turned balusters and moulded
handrail. HISTORY: built for Robert Stannanought (d.1729); a
very late example of a fundamentally C17 plan-form, probably
the latest in this area.
(Private Report and Survey: Miller G: 1987-).
