North Furzehill Farmhouse, with
walls and pinnacles to entrance
Farmhouse. Late C16, later modifications. Rubble, painted to
front and gables, tile roof. A 3-room cross-passage plan with
heated outer rooms; the upper end, to the right of the
passage, is at a higher level than the lower; at the lower end
is a small rear wing, originally of 1 storey, raised to 2 in
the C20. Garage to left added 1993-4.
2 storeys; 4-window range. Irregular fenestration, all C18 or
C19 casements, with 4 or 6 panes, to wood lintels. At first
floor is a small 2-light, then beyond a break in the wall,
three further 2-light, those to the right at a higher level.
The ground floor has a 3-light with rough stone drip-course,
in the set-back part of the wall, then a C20 two-light and a
further C19 flanking the doorway, with C20 door. Each gable
end has a stack, that to the right stepped, in stone, and to
the left the same, but the upper part in brick; this gable
steps back beyond the stack. The eaves slopes down to the
left, following the slope across the site, and providing a
deeper soffit over the recessed wall. The right gable has a
small single light, and the back has a C20 glazed door to the
upper room, and 2-light beyond. There is a swept-down roof to
right of centre, merging with the later gabled wing.
INTERIOR: considerably modified, especially at the ground
floor, but many historic elements remain. The upper room has a
wide fireplace with late C16 ovolo-moulded and stopped
bressumer; the first-floor room above has a crude pegged
A-frame roof, with 2 purlins and diagonal ridge purlin. The
lower room also has a fireplace with deep bressumer beam, and
a cloam oven. The upper level has trusses with curved feet
(characteristic of an early date) and a pegged collar, with
rough scarfed purlins; there were formerly pegged rafters.
There is an early framed partition above and below the collar
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: flanking the main entrance are 2 dwarf
walls, carrying on their outer ends remains of square stone
pinnacles with gablet faces; these are said to have come from
the former chapel (qv) at South Furzehill Farmhouse (qv).
