Higher Slade Farmhouse)


House, formerly a farmhouse with outbuilding to rear. C17,

MATERIALS: rubble slate (whitewashed to front); part Welsh
slate part synthetic slate roofs.
PLAN: the house is now a 2-room, through-passage plan with
narrow dairy and services to the rear and a further unit to
the left, now a garage with bedroom over. The house is likely
originally to have been a conventional 3-room cross-passage
plan with the services to the right of the passage. Storage
wing to rear forming an L-shape plan overall. The house lies
across the slope of the hill under three roof levels. One
terminal and one ridge stack.
EXTERIOR: 2-storey front: irregular fenestration. Two
small-paned casement windows to the right of the passage with
one casement and one blocked window above; to the left, two
12-pane horned sashes with a large gabled dormer above
containing a 3-light casement. Garage door to left. Casements
to both returns. External bake oven to right. Rear wing much
patched, some brick.
INTERIOR: solid masonry full-height partition walls to either
side of passage. Right room has one chamfered and stopped
ceiling beam and C20 fireplace that retains bakeoven.
Left-hand room fireplace (backing onto through-passage) also
has bakeoven, otherwise much altered. Roof space of house not
inspected. C19 A-frame roof to rear wing.
