4/148 Lower Suffenton Farmhouse


House. Circa early C17. Rendered stone rubble. Rag slate roof with gable ends and
gable end to rear wing. Brick shafts to end stacks.
Plan: The original plan is uncertain. The house is of overall 'T' shaped plan with
front range on east of 2 room plan and wing to rear of centre. The front range
comprises a larger room on the left (south) heated by an end stack with cloam oven
projection and a smaller room on right (north) which may originally have been
unheated. The rear wing has the entrance at the angle with the front range to east
and a room to the rear (west) heated by an end stack. The house may originally have
continued to the west with a second range possibly forming the higher cross wing to a
house of overall 'H' shaped plan, the higher west wing having been largely demolished
with only the lower front wall on south surviving in the form of an outbuilding. The
house would therefore have originally faced south, built along the slope, the present
front range on east having originally been a service wing at the lower eastern end
and the present rear wing having been remodelled, originally the hall and through
passage. The west (higher) side of the passage partition has been removed and the
lower right hand (east) side of the passage is formed by the thick wall between the
central and east range. The rear entrance of the through passage is slightly off set
with a projection beyond, incorporated into an C18 outshot, which may originally have
been a stair turret.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2 window east elevation with C19 3-light casement
on left and C20 window to right. 2 circa C19 casements on first floor. Rear wing
with C20 lean-to porch on right, C20 window to left and 2 C20 windows above. Lean-to
outshot to left probably incorporating base of front wall of demolished cross wing.
Interior: Front east range with partly blocked fireplace in left hand room. Slate
flag floors. Interior partly remodelled in C19 but remains unspoilt. First floor
and roof structure not accessible.
