3/73 Stancombe Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Circa later C17 and early C19. Front range has stuccoed walls, exposed
slate rubble walls to rear wing. Hipped slate roof to front, gabled to rear wing.
Brick stack at rear gable end and one at either end of front.
Plan: the older part of the house is at the rear and it is likely to have been
truncated by the building of the new front so it does not survive in its entirety.
It consists of 3 rooms with a larger heated one at the centre and a passage
between it and the room in front which leads to a newel stair. The front block
has 2 principal rooms with a central entrance hall which leads to a staircase
behind the right-hand room.
Exterior: 2 storeys with attic to rear wing. Symmetrical 5-window front of late
C20 facsimile tall 12-pane horned sashes. Central roundheaded doorway with early
C19 6-panel door which has a semi-circular fanlight above. Contemporary or
slightly later C19 verandah along the front supported on wooden pillars. Rear
wing has C19 leanto along outer face. On inner face are late C20 small-paned
casements and a C17 studded plank door to left of centre.
Interior: rear wing has roughly chamfered cross beams, one with hollow step-
stops, in main room. Timber newel stair has a short section of C17 balustrade at
the top with heavy moulded handrail and turned balusters. On the 1st floor is one
C18 fielded 2-panel door and a contemporary cupboard also with fielded panel doors
and H-L hinges. The front part of the house has panelled shutters and moulded
plaster cornices to the 2 ground floor front rooms.
