1/163 East Shallowford Farmhouse
Farmhouse, formerly a longhouse. C16 or earlier; probably extended at right-hand
end and rear wing added. Solid, roughcast walls, probably of granite. Asbestos-
slated roof, half-hipped. Old roughcast chimney with thatch weatherings on ridge at
left-hand end of old house-part. Small rendered chimney towards right-hand end of
ridge. Large rendered chimney on gable of rear wing. Plan consists of through-
passage with hall and inner room to right; former shippon (now living
accommodation) to left. To right of inner room a service room, possibly a dairy; to
rear, leading out of hall, a room with fireplace, possibly a parlour. 2 storeys.
House-part 3 windows wide, the left-hand window (in front of hall) projecting
slightly. C19 casements with glazing-bars. To left of house-part 2 doorways, one
to through-passage and the other presumably to the former shippon. Doorways have a
single wide porch with pent roof; open front, stone side-walls, the right-hand wall
with built-in seat.
Interior: Hall has chamfered upper-floor beam with bar-stops. One end, rather
curiously, is buried by the C16 chimneystack. Wide fireplace with granite jambs,
chamfered wool lintel with run-out stops, the left end chamfered beyond the jamb; a
small chamber seems to have been inserted to left of fireplace. Above the lintel a
relieving arch, the semi-circular space beneath filled with 2 specially-cut pieces
of granite. Back of fireplace to passage is of granite ashlar, but without the
cornice and plinth usual on Dartmoor. Good plank door at rear of passage, re-faced
on outside. Rounded stair turret with stone steps at rear of hall. Rear wing
fireplace has plain granite lintel. Upper storey not inspected.
