5/53 Stack House


House. Circa mid C17 or earlier, remodelling of circa 1700, eaves raised 1938.
Colourwashed rendered cob on stone rubble footings, asbestos slate roof gabled at
ends, end stacks and axial stacks sited to the front of the ridge.
A 3 room and through passage plan house, the hall stack backing on to the passage,
the lower end room probably a kitchen, a heated parlour at the higher end. In circa
1700 a rear right projection was added for a dog-leg stair, this may originally have
been gabled but in 1938 was brought under the same roof as the main range. Much of
the internal joinery dates from 1700. The rear left lean-to may have been added as a
service room to the kitchen in the C18.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 5-window front with a chamfered cambered stone doorway into
the through passage to the left. Most of the windows are 2- and 3-light C20
casements with glazing bars, the hall window to the right of the doorway is a circa
late C18/early C19 3-light casement, 8 panes per light and the first floor 2-light
casement above may be coeval. Ground floor window right is a tripartite sash, 6 over
6 panes.
Interior The through passage plan survives intact, the passage has a slated floor
and 2 chamfered 1/2 beams, stops may be concealed behind the wall plaster. The C20
grate to the hall may conceal earlier features. The house has a good set of circa
1700 2-panel doors, some with HL hinges, a coeval 6-panel door leads from the hall to
the circa 1700 stair which has a ramped handrail and turned balusters. The hall
window-seat with a panelled back survives, the inner room has a moulded plaster
cornice. The remains of a granite mullioned window exists in the garden. The
internal joinery is a particularly attractive feature of the house.
