Larcombe Farmhouse and
4/3 adjoining outbuilding to
north east and garden
wall to east.


Farmhouse and adjoining outbuilding. Circa early C17, remodelled in circa
early C19. Local slate rubble. Slate roof with gable ends and red clay
ridge tiles. Rear lateral and gable end stacks with rendered brick shifts
and old turned clay pots.
Plan and development: Overall L-shaped plan. The main rage is the original
house, probably of 3 room and through or cross passage plan, the lower left
end room heated from a gable end stack; the hall has a lateral stack at the
back and the inner right-hand room has a gable end stack. It is believed
that the internal arrangement has been altered, probably in the early C19
when the house was remodelled and extended with a small wing added to the
rear of the lower left-hand end and a farm building at the higher right-hand
end projecting forwards and farming an L-shaped plan.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window east front. All C20 4-pane
sashes, except for the ground floor right-hand window which is a circa early
C19 16-pane sash end the wide ground floor window to the left which has a
dressed stone hoodmould, a chamfered timber lintel with ogee stops and a
later C20 4-light casement. Doorway to left of centre with an early C19
fielded panel door, the bottom panels flush and reeded; a C20 glazed porch.
Rear elevation was not inspected.
Projecting from the front of the right-hand end a circa early C19 farm
building, also of dressed slate rubble but its hipped roof has been mostly
clad in corrugated asbestos; under the eaves on the inner face there are
same probably reused hollow-chamfered stones used as a wall-plate. The
inner face of the farm building has a C19 plank door and C19 3-light
casement above and to the right 2 large blocked doorways.
There is a Cl9 low boundary wall on the other 2 sides of the front garden,
slate rubble with pitched slate rubble capping and a pair of gate-piers at
the front with slate caps and a C20 wrought-iron gate.
Interior not inspected.
