7/67 Chelsea Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Mid-late C17 with C19 and C20 extensions. The C17 section is plastered
cob on stone rubble footings; stone rubble stack topped with C19 and C20 brick;
thatch roof. The C19 section is brick with a slate roof and the C20 is plastered
blockwork with concrete tile roof.
Plan and development: the old farmhouse has a 3-room lobby entrance plan and faces
south-west. The centre and left rooms are separated by an axial stack serving back-
to-back fireplaces. The lobby entrance is in front of the stack. The right room is
smaller and unheated. It was probably a dairy or buttery originally. It is set at
a slightly different angle from the rest of the house. To right of the C17 house is
a C19 1-room plan extension. This was probably built as an agricultural outbuilding
and was converted to domestic use in the C20. C20 service extension on the left
end. Farmhouse is 2 storeys.
Exterior: 1:3:2-window front of mostly C20 casements with glazing bars. However the
centre portion includes a C19 16-pane sash and, first floor centre, a C17 oak-framed
window with chamfered mullions. The original lobby entrance front doorway is left
of centre alongside a raking brick buttress and it contains a part-glazed C20 door.
To right a second front doorway has been inserted into the original buttery/dairy.
It contains a C20 door behind a contemporary rustic porch with thatched gabled roof
and trellis sides. The C19 brick section has a symmetrical 2-window arrangement
around a central doorway which also contains a C20 door. The main roof is gable-
Interior was not available for inspection at the time of this survey but is said to
contain original C17 carpentry detail
Feniton is an attractive little village containing a good group of listed buildings
