GV II*

Farmhouse. Probably C17 with alterations into C18. Dry stone or thin
coursed rubble, stone slate and asbestos roofs. Two-cell house attached
on its left side to barn (qv) and on its right side to stack, 2-cell
service area and further cart shed and stable. One storey and attic,
2 windows. Ground floor has 2 C19 6-paned casements to left hand side and
a late C19 12-paned sash to right of entrance; above each casement is an early
C19 4-paned casement under a raking top dormer. Entrance through right side
of planked c1900 porch and late C19 ledged door; second entrance through
ledged C18 door into lobby adjacent to barn. To right hand side of house
but attached is former wash house and brew house, cart shed and stable;
the last has a small 2-light window and the first 2 each have an evenly
spaced late C18 - early C19 ledged door. Interior: principal room has
plank and muntin screen to left, bacon cratch attached to closely set joists
above and to right a late C19 cast iron range. C19 straight stairs rise
from the rear corridor of left cell which is defined by a post-and-rail
partition. To the right of the hearth through chamfered doorway a front
corridor leads past main entrance giving access successively to kitchen and
dairy, the three spaces being separated by a longitudinal and a transverse
plank and muntin screen. The corridor leads into the wash house and brew
house which contain a C19 bread oven to rear left and a copper to rear right;
in the right hand wall is a diamond-mullioned 4-light window overlooking the
cart shed and side door to stable which contains 2 loose boxes. The rear
upper floor of the kitchen and dairy part has in a half-dormer a diamond
mullioned window and the roof trusses of the same area have iron straps on
their A-frame trusses. The building and attachments form an exceptionally
good example of an early farmhouse which has barely changed for over a
century.
