5/86 Kippings Cross Farmhouse
House. C17 origins, remodelled and refronted in the circa late C18/early C19.
Originally framed construction, the front elevation rebuilt and stuccoed, the
other elevations brick and tile-hung, the rear elevation with stone rubble
footings; peg-tile roof to the front of the ridge, slated to the rear; stone
and brick stacks with rendered shafts.
Plan: The house faces east. Double depth plan with principal heated rooms to
left and right at the front, flanking a central entrance passage containing
the stair. Rear service rooms, the rear left room heated under a 2-storey
lean-to. The plan form may be largely that of the C17, the rear brickwork
suggests that a pre C19 outshut has been raised to 2 storeys.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Almost symmetrical 3-bay front with a plinth and roof
with sprocketted eaves, gabled at ends. Central projecting enclosed porch
with pilasters with capitals, a moulded cornice and an outer doorway with a
basket arch; half-glazed C19 or early C20 front door. Platband at first floor
level. 2 ground floor 12-pane sash windows, probably early C19. 2 first
floor left hand windows probably late C18 12-pane sashes with margin glazing,
first floor window right 16-pane early C19 sash.
Interior: Some remains of the C17 fabric are visible including wall posts to
the framing of the rear wall of the main block. The right hand front room has
served as a kitchen at one time and has a massive open fireplace with a bread
oven. The left hand front room has a chamfered crossbeam. Circa early C19
stair with a turned newel post and stick balusters. Re-used C17 panelled door
on the first floor which also preserves a late Victorian tiled chimney-piece.
