Farmhouse. Circa mid C17, enlarged and altered early C18/circa 1700, with C19 and
C20 alterations. Granite, first building in random rubble with granite dressings,
early C18 addition in coursed and roughly squared rubble to front, random rubble to
rear and gable end; partly rendered, with brick and cob. Asbestos slate roofs with
gable ends, hipped at junction between the 2 wings, with brick gable end stack to
each wing.
Originally 3-room plan, with 2 rooms to right of passage. and 1 to left; probably
originally a cross passage. Hall heated by rear lateral stack with stair tower to
right of stack, end room to right heated by gable end stack, and with end entry. The
room to left of the passage was an unheated dairy. Probably circa 1700, a 2-storey
wing of 2-room plan was added to the front of the passage, with a new entrance to the
front right. At about the same time a lean-to was built around the stair tower to
the rear and at the right gable end of the original house. There is a later lean-to
at the rear of the addition, and the stair in the addition may be slightly later;
repairs were made to the end wall over the dairy in cob and brick. Forms overlap T-
plan with early range to right and wing to left.
2 storeys, early range has two 16-pane sashes at ground floor with chamfered granite
lintels, C20 6-pane light and 8-pane light under eaves. The gable end has stepped
stack and single storey rubble lean-to, with C20 2-light casement to side in former
door opening with roughly hewn granite lintel. The wing has C20 French window and 2-
light casement at first floor, panelled door to right with overlight and slate hood,
2-light casement above. Gable end in random rubble. At the rear of the original
main range, there are C20 lights at ground and first floor of the end room; behind
the hall, the stair tower with pitched roof and single storey lean-to attached with
large granite quoins. External stack to right with curved oven at base. To right, a
4-pane sash at ground floor and C20 light above. The rear of the dairy has a 9-pane
light with timber lintel at ground floor and 6-pane light under eaves. End of the
original wing has large granite quoins, upper part of wall above dairy rebuilt in cob
and brick, end wall rendered at upper level, with C20 casement at ground floor, roof
hipped. The rear of the addition is concealed by a single storey lean-to along the
whole range with a 2-light casement to rear and side with timber lintel.
Interior : In the gable end wall of the early range is a 4-centred arched granite
doorway, possibly re-set at the time the front passage doorway would have been closed
by the addition. The addition has 1 room to outer end and straight stair, divided to
left and right at the top, with an early C18 2-panelled door leading to the end room
at first floor. The roof over the early range has straight principals crossed at the
apices and pegged; the roof over the addition is of earlier date, with steep
principals resting on the wall tops, of the early C18. The stair tower has a wooden
newel stair.
