4/39 Lower Dunscombe Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C18, possibly a remodelling of an earlier house. Colourwashed and
rendered ; asbestos slate roof, gabled at ends, lower roof at right end corrugated
asbestos; left end stack, rear lateral stack with tall shaft, end stack to rear right
The main range is single depth with 2 principal heated rooms to the left of a through
passage and an unheated room at the right end under a lower roofline. The centre and
left hand of the main range is 3-storey with a projecting rounded stair turret on the
rear wall adjacent to the stack that heats the centre room. The rear door of the
through passage gives access to a single storey kitchen. The position of the stacks
and the general arrangement suggests that this was a pre C18 3 room and through
passage plan, the lower end to the right, remodelled in the C18 when the hall and
inner room were given an additional storey but the lower end was left at its original
height. The date of the rear right kitchen addition is unclear.
3 storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window front with regular fenestration; wide plank and
stud front door at extreme right leading into through passage. Ground floor window
left, 2-light casement, 8 panes per light; 1 from left, 2-light casement, 6 panes per
light; to left of front door 9 pane fixed window. 3 first floor 2-light casements, 6
panes per light; 3 first floor 2-light casements, 2 panes per light.
Interior: The principal room has a C20 grate, possibly concealing an earlier
fireplace, wide newel stair with timber treads in rear turret. 2 first floor C18 2-
panel dodrs and 2 C19 iron gates and C19 chimneypieces. The newel stair extends to
the 2nd floor which is unheated and was presumably used for servants.
A late vernacular farmhouse of unusual design. The survival of old casement windows
and the rear stair turret are particularly attractive features.
