Nos.256-264 (Even)


Farmhouse, formerly with attached barn and shippon, now all
one dwelling. Dated 1687 internally; extended, altered,
rebuilt and recently restored. Sandstone random rubble (and
some C20 brick now faced with rubble), stone slate roof.
PLAN: irregular and unorthodox plan resulting from alternate
rebuildings at various dates, consisting of a 2-unit domestic
range in 2 builds, with the former barn attached and
projecting to the left.
EXTERIOR: the house is 2 low storeys, 1:1 windows, with a
quoined vertical joint between the C17 portion and the
addition to its right; the former has a double-chamfered
mullioned window of 3+3 lights at ground floor with a
king-mullion and a hood-mould (and the left end slightly
overlapped by the added farm building), and a 4-light window
above with chamfered flush mullions; the addition to the right
has a doorway abutting the junction and one altered 3-light
casement on each floor to the right, all these openings with
plain surrounds. Ridge chimney at the junction (i.e. the
former gable). Immediately inside this addition the original
gable wall of the C17 portion has a doorway with chamfered
surround; and its interior has a rectangular stone fireplace
with lintel dated 1687, chamfered beams of dubious
authenticity; and a thick interrupted lateral partition wall
which is probably related to an earlier phase in the
development of the plan.
The former barn range has been much altered (with brick
outshuts to the front now clad in rubble) but has a
segmental-arched opening at the rear.
INTERIOR not inspected.
