3/30 Denbow Farmhouse


House, formerly the principal rooms of the former farmhouse. Late C17, divided off
from the kitchen and former barn, now known as Denbow Thatch (q.v.), circa 1980.
English bond locally-made brick; brick stacks and chimney shafts; slate roof.
2-room plan house facing south-east and attached to right (north-eastern) end of
Denbow Thatch. Each room, both ground and first floors, are served by projecting
rear lateral stacks still with their original diagonal chimney shafts. Between the
rooms is the entrance hall and main stair. The present house occupies the principal
rooms of the former farmhouse. It is 2 storeys with attics in the roofspace and a
Surprisingly asymmetrical 3-window front with a plain plat band at first floor
level. The windows are C19 replacement mullion-and-upper-transom casements with
glazing bars, 3 lights at the right end, the rest 2 lights. Those on the ground
floor and the doorway left of centre have segmental arches over. Doorway now
contains a C19 6-panel door and overlight with glazing bars. 2 gabled dormer
casements with glazing bars to the attics. The roof is hipped each end and on the
front only is an eaves cornice with a series of regularly-spaced plain brackets.
The rear has the external cellar door and 2 blocked stair windows.
Interior was modernised in the C19 but apparently only superficially so. The right
room has late C17 bolection-moulded wainscotting. The chimneypieces are C19. The
original dogleg stair has a closed string, square-section newel posts, heavy turned
balusters and a moulded flat handrail. Roof not inspected but is believed to be
Denbow is an attractive and apparently little-modernised late C17 brick farmhouse.
