SX 28 SE
2/196 Innyside Farmhouse
House. Probably late C16. Stone rubble, rendered on front elevation. Slate roof
with hipped end on left and gable end on right. Stone rubble axial stack near centre
and end stack on right.
Plan: 3-room and through passage plan with ground sloping down to right. Lower end
on right heated by end stack. Hall heated by axial stack backing onto passage and
inner room originally a dairy. Small circa C16 or C17 projection to rear of hall and
C19 outshut to rear of passage and lower end.
Exterior: Two storeys. The house is built down the slope with the ground rising to
left. Asymmetrical 5-window front. C19 or C20 part glazed door in C20 gabled porch
with 2-light casement and outshut extension to right. To left, C19 3-light casement
and probably C19 1-light casement lighting hall. Beyond to left is a small stone
quatrefoil window which was unglazed. Above on first floor four C19 and C20 2-light
casements and 1-light casement to right. Attached on the lower right hand end is a
barn of stone rubble with corrugated asbestos roof and C20 windows. On the rear
elevation of the house is a small projection of single storey to rear of the hall,
lit by a 2-light mullion window.
Interior: Through passage with stair inserted in left hand side. The lower end has
an open fireplace with unmoulded surround. C17 chamfered ceiling beams which are
fairly large, and wany but roughly cut and unstopped. The partition between the
dairy and hall has been removed. Both rooms have fairly slight chamfered ceiling
beams. The axial hall stack appears to have possibly been inserted. The hall
fireplace has a hollow chamfered granite surround. In the rear wall is a small
projection, lit by a two-light mullion window. This appears too small to be hall bay
although it is on the higher side of the hall, which is a characteristic position for
the area. Alternatively it may have been a stair turret, the stair now gone.
On the first floor a C17 chamfered timber lintel to the fireplace directly above that
of the hall, the left hand jamb rebuilt. There is a second fireplace backing onto
this heating the chamber on the lower side.
The roof structure reuses earlier material; the roof was probably raised by about 1.5
metres in the early C19 and now has an A-frame roof with lapped and pegged and nailed
apices and collars. The blades appear blackened and sooty although there are no
mortice holes at the apices or for earlier collars and the purlins appear to have
originally been trenched.
