SX85SW East Hartley Farmhouse
2/1 including front garden
area wall to north


Farmhouse. Circa early C17 or earlier, extended and remodelled probably in
C18 and remodelled again in circa mid C19. Local slate rubble, partly slate
hung at rear. Corrugated asbestos or steel hipped and gable ended roofs.
Large lateral stack at the rear with massive stone shaft and set-off. Brick
left hand gable end stack.
Plan: The original early C17 or earlier house had a 2 or 3-room and through
passage plan, its lower end to the left (east south east) heated from a
gable end stack. The hall has a lateral stack at the back with an integral
stair turret. To the right of the hall there might have been an inner room.
It was probably in the C18 that the house was remodelled, a kitchen with a
gable end stack was added to the right-hand end with a service wing of the
front forming an overall L-shaped plan. The through passage was widened to
form a stairhall in the C18 or in mid C19. The house was again remodelled
in circa mid C19 when outshuts were built on the inner and outer sides of
the service wing and a porch was added at the front.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front and projecting wing to
right. Circa late C19 or early C20 16-pane sashes Doorway to left of
centre with late C19 6-pane door and later C19 gabled brick porch with
segmental arch. The wing to the right has 2 16-pane sashes on the first
floor the right hand without horns and a C19 single storey lean-to outshut
below in the angle with the main range. A stone raking buttress at the left
hand end of the front of the main range. The rear probably continuing an
integral stair turret. The higher right-hand and has a massive projecting
stack, its shaft truncated and a large oven with a carbelled stone roof, on
the other side of the stack a small single storey outshut.
Including front garden area wall. Probably C19, low slate rubble overall
with gate - piers at the centre in front of the front door, C20 wrought iron
Interior not inspected but a circa mid C19 staircase was observed. The
staircase has stick balusters and a turned newel. The hall fireplace is
said to have a replaced lintel and there is apparently a newel staircase
beside the stack. The ceilings are apparently, high and there are no-
exposed beams.
