House, former farmhouse. C16 and C17 with probably later extensions, modernised
circa 1980. Plastered granite stone rubble; granite stacks one with granite ashlar
chimneyshaft; thatch roof, replaced with slate to rear.
Plan: Long building built across the hillslope facing south. The original part
appears to be a 3-room-and-through-passage plan house at the left (west) end.
Unheated inner room at the extreme left end. The hall has an axial stack backing
onto the passage and a stair turret projects forwards. The service end room has a
rear lateral stack. To right of this are 2 or 3 more rooms, the right end one now
converted to a garage. Since no interior inspection was available at the time of
this survey it is not possible to outline the historic development of the house
here. Nevertheless it probably originated as some kind of open hall house. Now 2
Exterior: Irregular 7-window front of C20 casements, most with glazing bars. The
passage front doorway is well left of centre and now contains a C20 glazed door.
The roof is half-hipped to left and hipped to right.
Interior was not available for inspection at the time of this survey but is
suspected to include some good C16 and C17 features.
Haycroft is one of a number of attractive listed buildings in Murchington.
