1309/4/476 HORSEBROOK


Farmhouse. A circa late C18 or early C19 remodelling and extension of an
earlier probably C17 house. Plastered stone rubble. Asbestos slate roof with
gabled ends. Projecting gable and the right hand stack rendered, the left
hand stack exposed stone rubble; axial stack to left of centre, its shaft in
front of the ridge is rendered.
Plan: The existing house has a long 4 room single depth plan conprising a
room to the right heated from a gable end stack, a wide entrance hall to the
right of centre with a stair projection at the back, a parlour to the left of
centre heated from an axial stack and a room at the left end heated from a
gable end stack and with direct entry from a doorway at the front; there is
an outshut at the back of the right hand room. The right hand room was the
kitchen of the original C17 house until the house was remodelled and extended
in the late C18 or early C19 forming a wide entrance hall with a rear stair
projection in place of the passage and a parlour to the left of the entrance
hall. The room at the left end is probably a late C18 or early C19 extension
to provide separate accommodation. The remodelling also included the addition
of a kitchen outshut at the back of the right hand room allowing the latter to
be used as a parlour. The eaves were probably raised at the same time and the
front refenestrated with sashes.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window range, the right hand end of the
front is set back slightly. Circa early C19 16-pane sashes. Small C20
casement to the left of ground floor. Principal doorway to right of centre
has C19 flush panel door, the top panels glazed and a circa late C19 porch
with scantle slate hipped roof supported on C20 wooden posts. Another doorway
at the left hand end has a painted granite lintel.
Rear elevation: The main roof is carried down over the outshut to the left
with a rectangular stair projection in the angle to its right which has an
early C19 8-pane casement on the first floor and a C20 casement on the ground
Interior: The large fireplace in the right hand room has a chamfered timber
lintel with straight cut stops, dress slate rubble jambs and 2 ovens built of
corbelled slate. Room to left of the entrance hall has a late C18 or early
C19 chimneypiece with a moulded architrave and cornice mantelshelf. The
staircase across the back of the entrance hall is in the projection and
has a late C18 or early C19 balustrade at the top with stick balusters and
chamfered square newels. Some early C19 interior joinery survives including
panelled doors.
Roof: The centre and right hand half of the roof has collars halved, lapped
and pegged to the faces of the principals; one of the collars is an earlier
principal reused having a mortice for a threaded purlin.
Including front garden area wall and gate; circa early C19 low stone rubble
wall with rounded corners at the ends and stone rubble square-on-plan gate
piers to the right of centre, in front of the house doorway, with C19 wrought
iron gate with a curved brace and scrolled top rail.
