7/158 Nos. 1, 2 and 3 Michell's
Farmhouse divided into 3 cottages. Circa early C17, modernized in the C20 after a
fire; No. 3, at the right end, is probably a converted outbuilding. Colourwashed

end stack with ashlar Beerstone set-offs, 2 axial stacks, the right hand stack
probably originally the right end stack of the range.
Plan: Single depth range, the left hand and centre probably originally a 3 room and
passage plan house, lower end to the right 2 rear wings at right angles to the main
range. Interior of No. 1 only inspected, this is thoroughly modernized and the
other 2 cottages are said not to have exposed carpentry. No. 3 is said to be
brick, a converted outbuilding.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 7 window front. A C20 gabled porch to No. 2 has
an outer doorway on the left return and an inner door with a moulded C17 timber
doorframe, possibly the original front entrance to the cross passage. Nos. 1 and 2
have good C17 stone mullioned windows with ovolo-moulded mullions and hoodmoulds to
the ground floor: 2 3-light first floor windows, 2 ground floor 4-light windows and
1 ground floor 3-light window. A 4th ground floor mullioned window has been
truncated by the porch to No. 3 which has 4 first floor C20 2-light casements with
glazing bars and 1 smaller ground floor casement to the right.
Interior: No. 1 inspected, interior modernized. The first floor ceiling timbers
are said to be C20.
Roof: Said to be C20, a replacement following a fire.
A good exterior: the stone mullioned windows are an unusual survival.
