Listing Text

5/264 Grange Farmhouse

Farmhouse. Early C18, altered and extended C19. Coursed limestone rubble with
some ashlar dressings and some wooden lintels; Stonesfield-slate and Welsh-slate
roofs with stone-and-brick stacks. 3-unit plan with long rear wing, extended to
4 units. 2 storeys plus attic and 2 storeys. 4-window front of main range, with
a rubble storey band, was altered early C19 from a 5-window arrangement and now
has 12-pane sashes at first floor and sashes of 12, 16 and 12 panes at ground
floor, bay 3 replacing 2 narrower bays. Only the ground-floor window in bay one
retains an ashlar flat arch with projecting keyblock, but traces of others
remain in the walling. Doorway in bay 2 has a 6-panel door in an elaborate C19
wooden porch, and above it the window is blind. 2-storey C19 section to left
probably incorporates earlier walling at ground floor, but now has a 2-light
casement above a pair of sashes. Right end wall has pairs of windows at ground
and first floors plus a gable window; most are blocked but some retain 2-light
casements. Returning from it, the 5-window rear range, originally single storey,
has varied casements of several dates. Rear of main range has a wide gabled
projection incorporating the stair, and has a broad lateral stack at the
junction of ranges with a moulded stone string above the rubble base. Gable wall
of rear wing has a smaller similar stack. Interior: mostly C19 details. The farm
is near the site of the deserted village of Nethercote.
