4/60 Menadarva Farmhouse
including rear courtyard
1.12.51 (formerly listed as Menadarva)

Farmhouse. C17 and early C18, altered. Whitewashed uncoursed killas rubble
with granite quoins and dressings, slurried scantle slate roof. L-plan formed
by main range on north-south axis, with rear wing at south end. Two
storeys; the conventional front to the east, which has a plain doorway in
the centre, one sashed window at ground floor and 2 above, is of less
interest than the west side, facing the courtyard. This has an added gabled
porch in the angle with the wing, a square 2-light casement to the left,
with a chamfered lintel, another window beyond an attached yard wall
further to the left, and 3 low windows at 1st floor, all 8-pane sashes with
lay bars only, and that in the centre with shallow double-chamfered
surround. The courtyard side of the wing has a plain doorway to the right,
a square 2-light sashed window to the left and a blocked window above;
its gable wall has a small 2-light chamfered mullion window at ground
floor and a square 8-pane sashed window above; its south side has a
formerly similar mullioned window at ground floor, now lacking the
mullion, 4 tiers of pigeon holes at 1st floor. Further to the right the end
wall of the main range has a 1st floor band, and a very large chimney
stack with chamfered cap and small upper stage of brick. Hipped
roof.Interior: mostly altered, but contains a fine panelled parlour with
raised bolection-moulded panels above and below a dado rail, bolection-
moulded corniced fireplace and overmantel panel, and matching architraves
to doors. The courtyard on the west side of the house is paved with small
cobbles in geometrical patterns.
