4/115 West Castick Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Probably C17 origins, altered in circa mid C18 and extended in circa
1850s. Stone rubble. Slate roof with gable ends. Stone rubble rear lateral stacks
with brick shafts.
Plan: Original arrangement uncertain. The house has an overall 'L' shaped plan with
earlier range to right containing the entrance which leads into a remodelled later
C19 stair hall, large room, probably the hall, heated by a rear lateral stack and
smaller probably inner room beyond to right heated by a rear lateral stack. It is
possible that this inner room may be a circa late C17 or early C18 addition. To left
of the entrance is a circa mid C19 cross wing of 2-room plan with large principal
room on front heated by a side lateral stack. It is possible that this cross wing is
either a remodelling or on the site of an earlier range.
Exterior: Two storeys. Asymmetrical 1:2:1 window front with entrance to left of
centre and gable end of cross wing projecting forward on left. Circa C18 6-panel
door with raised and fielded panels in open porch, the round columns renewed in the
C20. Two C18 2-light casements to right lighting putative hall, now the kitchen and
two corca C18 3-light casements directly above. To right, set slightly back with a
straight joint on the front elevation is the entrance into the putative inner room.
To left, the cross wing has a double C19 6 over 9 pane sash on ground floor and C19
tripartite sash on first. On the rear elevation there is no straight joint between
the putative hall and inner room.
Interior: Hide entrance hall with circa mid C19 stair. The hall to right is
particularly large. The floor is partly of granite flags and partly slate (now
covered over). The fireplace is partly blocked but appears massive. C18 2-panel
doors and plaster ceiling. On the left hand side of the fireplace a small room has
been partitioned off and there is a feeding hatch to enable food to be passed into
what was probably a sick room (information from tenant). The inner room has a partly
blocked fireplace. In the cross wing the ceilings are considerably higher and there
is a C20 grate to the principal fireplace reusing circa C17 granite jambs taken from
the small outbuilding to north east (q.v.). First floor and roof structure not
There is a late C16 granite winder stair which stands now detached in the garden to
the right of the house.
