1/3 Porthmissen Farmhouse and garden
walls to front


Farmhouse and garden walls to front. Probably C18, extended in the early C19. Stone
rubble, slate hung on front and side elevation with rag slates. Steeply pitched
slate roof with gable ends to front range and with double gable end to rear. Brick
end stacks.
Plan: Original plan uncertain. The existing house is of a double depth plan with
central entrance; the 2 principal rooms to front heated by end stacks with stair to
rear of passage. The kitchen was accommodated in a wing to rear left, heated by an
end stack and dairy in a parallel wing to rear right. A straight joint on the rear
elevation and right hand side elevation indicates that the rear right hand wing which
contained the dairy, is probably a circa early C19 extension.
Exterior: 2 storeys and attic. Symmetrical 3-window front with central C19 gabled
stone rubble porch flanked by two 6-pane horned sashes. Three 6-pane horned sashes
to first floor. Rear elevation unaltered with stair window near centre and line of
pigeon holes above dairy on left.
Interior: Not inspected.
Garden wall to front of house . Circa C19. Stone rubble garden wall with gate-piers
enclosing garden to front of house, rising to right and left and screening the farm
yard to the right.
