2/109 Pitt and adjoining outbuildings
Former farmhouse, adjoining cider house and outbuilding adjoining at rear. Early
C17, possibly a remodelling of an earlier house, C20 renovations. Whitewashed
rendered cob and stone ; thatched roof, hipped at left end, replaced with slate over
cider house; main block with rear lateral stack, one projecting front lateral stack
with a granite shaft one internal front lateral stack with a brick shaft.
Plan: The main block is a single depth 3 room plan arrangement, formerly with a
through passage, lower end to the left, the hall heated by the front lateral granite
stack with a rear newel stair in a projecting turret. A dairy adjoining the inner
room at the right end and part of the cider house block which adjoins the dairy at
right angles to the front have been absorbed into the house. 2 outbuildings adjoin
the rear of the lower end at right angles to the main block, one has been converted
to domestic use.
Several phases of alteration and remodelling the lower end stack is probably an C18
or C19 addition, the partition between the passage and hall has been removed, the
front door to the former passage has been replaced by a window and the house is now
entered on the left return into a former outbuilding.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2 window front with 2 ground floor 2-light timber
casements with glazing bars, no first floor windows, entrance to former passage to
left of projecting stack. The inner return of the cider barn has a doorway into the
barn, 1 ground floor 2-light casement with square leaded panes and one 1-light
window. The rear elevation or the main block has a rounded projecting stair turret;
the left return has 1 first floor and 1 ground floor casement : the front door leads
into a former outbuilding adjoining at rear left.
A lower-roofed adjoining onbuilding is probably a former cartshed, open-fronted with
granite monoliths but partly infilled with stone rubble.
Interior: The hall retains a chamfered stopped cross beam and open fireplace with a
chamfered granite lintel and jambs and a brick-lined bread oven. The putative inner
room has a probably C19 fireplace and good panelled door of the late C17. The lower
end fireplace may also be C19. Newel stair with timber treads and risers leading off
main heated room.
Roof: Variety of roof trusses. A-frame trusses over inner room probably C19. Over
the hall and inner room the 2 late C17 trusses have curved collars halved and pegged
on to the principals; 3 C17 side-pegged jointed cruck trusses survive in the cider-
house range, one with a strengthening piece in the apex.
