Farmhouse. Circa early C17, late C20 rear wing. Stone rubble, whitewashed and
plastered, C20 tile roof gabled at ends, gable end stone stacks. The original plan
may have been 3-room and through passage with a 2-storey porch, the hall heated
from an end stack on the wall opposite the passage. Disturbance to the right gable
end wall suggests that an inner room has been demolished. The lower end may have
been inheated originally and used as a shippon or storage with loft over a first
floor entrance at the rear, blocked with cob infill was discovered during C20
alterations and was probably a loft entrance. In the C19 a stair was inserted in
the through passage, stair removed in the late C20 when a rear wing was added to the
house. 2 storeys. 3 window approximately symmetrical front with a gabled 2-storey
porch in the centre with an outer doorway under a timber lintel. C20 fenestration
the windows being 2-light casements with glazing bars except for the window to the
former hall, ground floor, right which is a similar 3-light casement.
Interior Exposed joists in the porch which continue in the former passage. No
partition between passage and hall. The hall has a large fireplace with a chamfered
lintel with ogee stops. Exposed joists in the hall are roughly-chamfered with some,
runout stops surviving. The lower end room has a small fireplace with a timber lintel
and rough exposed joists. Roofspace not inspected. In the early C20 a slate roof
was replaced by thatch and in the late C20 the thatch was replaced by tiles and the
roof timbers replaced.
