2/13 Hole Land Farmhouse

- II

Farmhouse. Circa late C16 extended in the C18 or C19. Whitewashed rendered cob on
stone rubble footings, thatched roof gabled at ends, brick end stacks to main range,
projecting stack with rendered shaft to end of wing.
The present plan is a single depth main range, 2-rooms wide, dating from the circa
late C16, the rooms both heated from gable end stacks with a newel stair to the rear
of the left-hand room. A front right wing, also heated, is an C18 or C19 addition.
The development of the house is not entirely clear (no access to roofspace at time of
survey , 1985) but it may have been a 2-room house with a hall/kitchen at the right
end and a parlour at the left end with additional accommodation provided by the added
wing in the C18 or C19. The left-hand stack of the main range appears to be an
insertion or rebuilding.
2 storeys. Irregular front: 1 window to the left-hand end, 2 windows to the wing
with the present entrance directly into the left-hand end of the main range with a
glazed C20 porch with lean-to roof in the angle between the main range and the wing.
The thatch eaves are eyebrowed over the first floor main range window which is a 2-
light casement, 6 panes per light. Ground floor window to left of porch is a 2-light
casement, 2 panes per light; similar window to first floor of wing: ground floor
window in wing is a 4-pane sash.
Interior The right-hand room has a deeply chamfered circa late C16 cross beam with
step stops and a second smaller unchamfered cross beam, suggesting the possibility of
some rebuilding at the right end of the main range. The fireplace is blocked but a
large timber lintel is still visible. A chamfered doorway, probably originally
external, leads into the wing. The left-hand room has a deeply chamfered cross beam
with a step stops, one stop appears to have been truncated by the fireplace which has
a reused timber lintel.
No access to roofspace at time of survey (1985) but large purlins visible upstairs
suggest that an early roof structure may exist.
An evolved house of circa C16 origins, particularly attractively sited in the
