4/150 Townsend House
Previously listed as
10.11.55 Corner Farmhouse


House, formerly several cottages, with cross wing parallel to street, and
main range running to rear. Front elevation is dated 1622 and it seems likely
that this dates the rear range also. Coursed rubble throughout, and 2 storeys.
Street front is of two bays, with a 2-light ovolo moulded mullioned window to
each floor to left and a two storey canted bay window with coped gable above,
corbelled out on ornately moulded kneelers, and containing three mullioned lights
to each floor. In the apex of the gable, the date with the initials WS and WP.
Stone tiled roof. Left hand gable is coped. Stone base to brick stack to right.
Rear wing is also of two storeys, with a blocked doorway in the angle, with a
chamfered timber lintel, now a window, a blocked stone window and a 2-light
window with hollow chamfered surround formerly mullioned and with a hoodmould.
New porch and windows in lower end, and above. Brick stacks on right hand gable
and behind doorway. New roof covering. Rear backs on to farmyard and contains
1½ stone mullioned windows with ovolo moulding. A single storey stable or byre
continues the line of the house along the street, coursed rubble with Welsh
slate roof.
