4/196 Satterleigh Barton

Barton Farmhouse. Probably late C17/early C18 refashioned in late C19. Painted
rendered stone rubble and cob. Slate roof with gable end to right and half-hip to
front wing at left end. Rebuilt brick stacks to centre rear and to right end and
ridge brick stack to front wing.
Plan. Overall L-shaped plan. Main range consists of three room and through-passage
plan, but with additional entrance stairhall between the 2 right-hand rooms. Dairy
and salting house to left of through-passage at left end, and a single principal
room to each side of entrance stairhall, that to left heated by rear stack, that to
right with gable end stack. An axial passage to the rear of these 2 rooms and
staircase, but with no access through to them, connects with the through-passage and
was probably originally for service use. Front wing to left end, formerly single
large kitchen, now divided into 2 rooms shares the massive stack with the salting
room at the left end of the main range. This suggests that the original late C17 or
early C18 range may have consisted of a 3-room and cross-passage plan, the lower
end to right, of stairhall, the 'hall' to left heated by--the rear lateral stack, and
a large parlour at left end which was later divided, when the large kitchen wing
was added, into the salting-house, dairy and through-passage, the partition between
the later two cutting through two C17/early C18 chamfered scroll-stopped ceiling
2 storeys. 3-window range achieving symmetry to right-hand end of main range, all
late C19 fenestration, 3 light casements to each floor, 6 panes per light to upper
storey 8 panes per light to ground floor, flanking a 2 light casement, 6 panes per
light above C20 porch, with gabled roof and late C19 4 panelled inner door.
Bellcote to centre straddling the ridge with hipped roof surmounted by weathervane,
and ogee-shaped bell-openings to each of the sides of the square base. C19 plank
door at left end of main range close to the angle with the front wing with 6 paned
window above. Front wing has 3 window range to inner face, all 2-light casements 8
panes per light except central ground floor window which has 6 panes per light.
Interior: Entirely late C19/early C20 internal joinery including 4 panelled doors
and staircase. All the beams are boxed in those to 'hall' are intersecting, except
to dairy and through-passage which has two cross ceiling beams, chamfered and
scroll-stopped, that towards front on one arris only.
The bell and mechanism are intact in the roofspace but not in situ. Roof structure
has wide-span trusses with straight principals, lapped collars and staggered
