9/64 Cutmadoc Farmhouse

Farmhouse, now two houses. Probably early - mid C17, with additions of later C17,
and later additions probably of circa C19. Divided as two houses circa mid C19 with
few later alterations. Slatestone and granite rubble with granite dressings. Partly
rendered. Slate roof with ridge tiles and gable ends ; one slightly crested hand-
made ridge tile surviving. Gable end stacks with rubble shafts.
Plan: 2-room and through passage plan. The hall is to left, heated from a gable end
stack. The lower end is to right, also heated from a gable end stack. In circa late
C17, a parlour wing of one-room plan was added to the front of the lower end room,
heated from a gable end stack. Probably circa early C19, a small unheated addition
was made to the rear of the lower end, as a dairy. Probably in the late C19, the
house was divided ; a door was inserted in the front of the lower end room, and a
straight stair was inserted in the front of the lower end room ; this with the
parlour wing, became a separate house. In the upper end a room was inserted in the
rear of the passage, and a single storey addition was made to the rear of the hall,
heated from a gable end stack.
Exterior: 2 storeys, asymmetrical 3-window front, with the parlour wing projecting to
front right. The passage doorway has granite surround, chamfered, with segmental
arch and C20 plank door. C20 single chamfered granite light to left and 2-light
chamfered granite window with casements to end left. To right there is a plank door
with glazed panel and pitched hood, leading into the lower end room. 2-storey gabled
wing to right, the gable end has a large 2-light chamfered granite mullion and
transom window, blind, the stack rising above. The inner side of the wing has at
ground floor a 3-light chamfered granite window with casements. First floor 2-light
C20 window. The dairy is a lean-to with plank door and single light. The rear of
the upper end has 2-light C20 casement at ground floor with chamfered granite lintel
remaining ; 2-light C20 window at first floor. To rear kitchen wing is single
storey, with hipped roof at the junction to the main range and gable end stack with
brick shaft to end. 4-pane sash at the left side and door at the right side.
Interior: The lower end room to right is ceiled; the stair is inserted along the
front of the room, and one chamfered ceiling beam remains. Very large fireplace at
the gable end, with straight chamfered lintel and jambs, reduced in size for the
insertion of a range. The windows are hollow-chamfered on the inside. The rear
dairy has a slate shelf. In the front wing, there is a C19 cast iron grate in the
gable end fireplace. The foot of one roughly hewn beam is visible at first floor,
roof not inspected. The upper end room has C19 ceiling beams.
The gable end of the front wing, with a blind window, is unusual in a farmhouse of
this date, as an architectural treatment of what would otherwise have been a blind
