3/87 Great Hackworthy Farmhouse

- II

Farmhouse. Early C17 or earlier origins, partial rebuilding of the circa early C19.
Whitewashed rendered cob; slate roofs gabled at ends; left end stack and axial stack
to main range, gable end stack to rear wing.
Rear courtyard plan, the courtyard partly made up of outbuildings. The main range of
the house is a 3 room and through passage plan, the hall stack backing on to the
passage with a former stair projection with blocked window to the rear of the hall, a
narrow unheated inner room to the right and a heated lower end room to the left. The
lower end appears to have been largely rebuilt in the early C19. A C17 rear right
kitchen wing adjoining the inner room forms an L-plan. The other 2 sides of the rear
courtyard consist of outbuildings, a brick building parallel to the main range and a
2-storey range parallel to the kitchen, which includes a granary. Part of this range
has been converted to house accommodation and the courtyard is entered below a room
over the gateway. Although the dateable features of the main range and kitchen wing
are early C17 it is possible that the fabric of the main range is earlier in origin.
2 storey main range. Asymmetrical 5-window front with a change in roof line to the
left of the axial stack and a left of centre front door into the through passage with
a gabled porch carried on timber posts. The left-hand end of the range has 16-pane
hornless sashes of the early C19 and a tall narrow stair window to the right of the
front door. The right-hand end of the house has 3- and 4-light casements, 8 panes
per light except for ground floor window right, lighting the inner room, which is a
3-light timber ovolo-moulded mullioned window with iron stanchions. The rear door of
the through passage, facing the courtyard, has a good timber ovolo-moulded C17
doorway and an adjacent projection which formerly contained a stair. The kitchen
wing has a timber mullioned window of the early Cl7on the ground floor facing the
Interior The hall fireplace has a C20 grate said to conceal an earlier lintel and
jambs; chamfered cross beam with step stops. The kitchen wing has a massive partly-
blocked gable end fireplace with a timber lintel that extends the entire width of the
room, chamfered cross beam with step stops, exposed joists and a cream oven now
concealed beneath an inserted stair. A second C19 stair has been inserted in the
through passage. The room above the hall has a C17 door with strap hinges and a
small cupboard in the thickness of the wall with butterfly hinges.
No access to roofspace at time of survey (1985).
A number of early C17 features including an early C17 kitchen.
