5/165 Foxworthy Farmhouse
Farmhouse, formerly a longhouse. C16, or possibly earlier, with C19 and C20
additions at rear; porch probably added in late C17 or early 18. Former barn at
left-hand end may be an early addition. Granite rubble; porch of granite ashlar.
Thatched roof, half-hipped. 2 old granite stacks with flat, simple caps, on ridge
to left of porch. Plan has through-passage with 2 rooms, probably former hall and
parlour, to left; beyond that is a former barn now converted to living
accommodation. Former shippon to right, now occupied by a single large room. 2
storeys; single-storey additions. Older house-part 3 windows wide, including
porch. All windows C20, including 2 inserted in former shippon. Porch is 2-
storeyed with round-arched doorway having voussoirs, well cut but of uneven sizes.
Inside, an old stone-flagged floor and, on the left, a stone bench; above this a
recess, possibly a blocked slit window. To left of porch a shallowly projecting
stair turret. Slit window with dripstone in rear wall of former barn.
Interior has hall fireplace backing on to through-passage (no architectural detail
on passage side). At rear of passage a round-arched doorway matching that in the
porch. Fireplace has chamfered granite lintel and jambs; oven in back with curved
stone head and stone shelf in front. To right of it, splayed entrance to stair
turret (stair removed). In rear wall, its head rising slightly above present upper-
floor level, is an old 2-light wooden window, blocked in externally; the lights are
mere slits, absolutely plain and with flat heads. Stone wall with old recesses
divides hall from parlour; latter has gable-fireplace with hollow-moulded granite
lintel; jambs are later. Floor-beams and roof-timbers all rebuilt C19 and C20.
Present owner reports that Mr Walter Chaffe recalls seeing cattle in what is
regarded as the shippon end.
