Higher Weare Farmhouse

Farmhouse and adjoining barn. Probably C16, remodelled C17 and altered and extended circa late C18 or early C19. Cob rear wall, largely rebuilt in stone rubble, partly plastered. Corrugated sheet steel roof with gabled and half-hipped ends. Gable-end and axial stacks with brick shafts.
PLAN : 2 rooms and central through passage, both rooms heated from gable end fireplaces. Since the partition on the left side of the passage is a plank and muntin screen, the room to the right has a framed ceiling and there are said to be smoke-blackened roof timbers, it has been suggested that this ceiling and the passage were inserted into an open hall, and that the low end of the house to the right was subsumed into the barn adjoining at right angles on the right, which forms an overall L-shaped plan. Outshut added at rear [N] of house.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys. Almost symmetrical south front. C19 3 and 2-light casements with glazing bars; central doorway with 6-panel door, top panels glazed; plank door on right. Outshut at rear. Barn projecting at right angles on right [SE] with half-hipped end clad in corrugated sheet steel; opposing doorways on front and back and doorway to left on west front.
INTERIOR: Left [W] room has chamfered cross-beam and chamfered bressumer over blocked fireplace with large recess to left with small blocked window in gable end. Right-hand [E] room has chamfered framed ceiling and large fireplace with timber bressumer and oven; inserted straight staircase. Circa early C19 joinery including panelled doors and corner cupboard. Rear blades of two side-pegged jointed cruck trusses, some smoke-blackening to purlins and ridgepiece. Barn has staggered tenoned purlin roof trusses augmented by scissor braces; 2 bays with inserted loft.
