Grantland Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Early C17 with possibly earlier core, renovated in 1984. Plastered cob
on rubble footings; rubble stacks with C20 brick chimney shafts; reused C19 slate
roof of 1984 (originally thatch). Altered 3-room-and-through-passage plan house
facing south-east with inner room at right (north-east) end. Rear lateral stacks
to hall and inner room and end stack to service room. C18 kitchen wing to rear of
service room rebuilt and enlarged in C20 and C20 extension to service end. 2
storeys. Frontage curves forward slightly. Irregular 5-window of C20 casements,
some with glazing bars, and including a canted bay window at right end. C20 glazed
door left of centre to passage and another right of centre to inner room. Roof is
half-hipped to right. Gable-ended to left.
Interior preserves much early C17 work. Both hall and inner room are floored with
chamfered and late step-stopped crossbeams. Hall-inner room partition is an oak
plank-and-muntin screen with chamfered muntins, step-stopped high to accommodate a
bench. Massive volcanic stone fireplace in rear wall has plain chamfered oak
lintel and an inserted brick side oven. Hall-passage screen has been removed but
screen survives - an oak plank-and-muntin screen with the muntins finished with
chamfers and step stops to passage. On the lower end room side the muntins are
enriched with central full height recessed panels and have ovolo-mouldings with
step stops. Service room also has unstopped moulded crossbeam. The rubble
fireplace has a replacement timber lintel. Service room of obvious superior
quality and presumably was used as a parlour. On first floor close-studded frame
partly exposed over lower passage screen. Another is suspected over hall-inner
room screen. Roof pitch has been altered to take slate roof but rear lower
sections of original trusses remain indicating original A-frame distribution and
form. Rear block includes one side of massive C18 brick kitchen fireplace
including a large oven.
