3/77 Troy Farmhouse
- II

Large farmhouse. Early C18, altered and extended C19. Coursed squared limestone
with wooden lintels: brick; Welsh-slate roofs with brick stacks. L-plan. 2
storeys plus attic. Right bay of 5-window front is of narrower rubble and may be
of earlier origin. All bays have 3-light casements to both floors except bay 3
which has a 2-liqht window above a glazed door; there is also a small window to
right of bay 4. Roof has 5 gabled roof dormers with C19 bargeboards, and has 4
stacks with paired shafts. Lower wing returns on right with further casements.
All openings an both ranges have chamfered lintels. Rear of main range is partly
obscured by a C19 brick wing. Interior not inspected. Recorded on the site from
C16 and probably on the site of a C15 manor house. Has an ancient turf maze in
the grounds.
