3/105 Sheephouse Farmhouse


Farmhouse now house. C17 origins, later wing dated 1894, considerable modifications
in C20. Limestone rubble but coursed and squared stone in late C19 unit, stone
slate roofs. Earliest block runs north-south, but cross wing, to half-hipped
gable probably added soon after forming an L-plan to which a small one room
unit added in late C19; since then two flat-roofed C20 additions. Overall
plan evolution not clear. Two storeys: west front, facing river valley has,
left, 2-light chamfer mullion casements with hoods; coped gable with kneeler
stones and small square stack over plaque with date. Then half-hipped gable
with 2-light over 3-light C20 stone casements; on right return a 2-light the
same. Right wing has three 2-light casements to upper floor, that over door
ovolo-mould C18, then C19 similar and C20 chamfer mullion; at ground level
a C19 2-light ovolo mould and a 2-light C20 chamfer mullion. All with hoods.
Left is 4-centred arch with stopped chamfer to part-glazed C19 door, under
flat stone hood on stone brackets. Return, right has four 2-light C20 chamfer-mould
casements; coped gable and small truncated square stack. The roof of this
early unit is slightly higher than remainder, and tumbles in to a small hip.
Main entry is now by a C20 door in infill block on north-east corner.

Interior substantially modified, has good C17 four-centred stone fire surround
with moulded mantel shelf in southern-most bedroom; 2-light wood mullioned
gable window within roof space at junction of 'L'; intersecting chamfered and
stopped beams at ground floor south room which also has large open fireplace
with stone cheeks and later timber bressumer. A second smaller fireplace in
cross wing with solid stone cheeks.

Although much modified, with mostly replacement windows and unsympathetic pointing
to stonework, this still retains the core of a historic structure.
