Pethins and garden wall to front
House and garden wall to front. Probably mid C17 partly remodelled in early C18.
Stone rubble, hung with asbestos slates on front and left hand elevations. Bitumen
coated steeply pitched slate roof with hipped ends and hipped end to stair projection
on rear. Stone rubble end stacks with brick shafts.
Plan: Two room and cross passage plan with dog-leg stair to rear of passage. The
left hand room was probably partitioned off in the C18 forming a parlour on the front
and a very narrow dairy to rear.
Exterior: Two storeys and attic. Symmetrical 3-window front. Central C20 doors
with C20 open porch with hipped slate roof. C19 2-light casements to left and right.
Three 2-light casements on first floor, partly replaced in C20 following earlier
pattern. Rear elevation with stair projection rising above eaves. Stone rubble
garden wall to front with granite coping. The wall was rebuilt in the C20, but
retains a C19 iron gate on right and remains of C19 iron railings.
Interior: Wide cross passage. The right hand room has heavy deeply chamfered beams
with straight cut stops spanning the whole depth of the house suggesting that it was
originally a single depth plan. In the left hand room these beams have been boxed
in. The fireplaces are blocked by a C20 grate and by a Rayburn stove. The circa
late C17 or early C18 dog-leg stair has a central timber newell rising from ground to
attic providing extra strength. The heavy turned balusters vary in design at each
stage, those to the first stage having been removed. Turned newels with small flat
bun finials. C19 and C20 doors on ground and first floor and simple plank doors to
attic. C18 roof structure.
