House. Probably late C17 or C18, remodelled and extended in circa mid C19.
Throughout stone rubble and cob. Slate roofs with crested ridge tiles, 3
hipped spaces at the front and gable-ended range at rear. Side stacks on
front range and gable end and rear lateral stacks on back range, all south
rendered shafts.
Plan: The original house is the 2-room plan range at the back, the left
hand room heated from a lateral stack at the rear, the right hand room has a
gable end stack, and between the 2 rooms there is a straight staircase and a
doorway at the front which now leads to the front range. The front range
was added in the mid C19, providing 2 principal rooms and a stairwell
between at the centre.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Almost symmetrical 3-window west front, restored 2-
light casements with margin glazing bars, those on ground floor are French
casements, centre first floor late C19 or C20 4-pane sash. Central doorway
with panelled double door with original panes and moulded architrave; glazed
canopy on large ornate wrought-iron brackets. The right hand (south) side
has C20 conservatory. The left hand side facing road has 2 16-pane C19
sashes to left and C19 glazed and panelled door to left of centre. Rear
elevation not inspected.
Including wall on left hand end of front on north side of front garden;
rendered stone with weathered coping, rendered square gate-piers with
pyramidal caps and good C19 ornate cast-iron gate.
Interior: Most of the C19 joinery is intact and some of the C18 joinery
survives including 2-panel doors and a plank partition beside the staircase
in the back range. In the front range a mid C19 open-well open string
staircase with stick balusters and moulded mahogany handrail wreathed over
the newel. The left hand front room has a marble chimneypiece with reeded
pilasters (probably imported from another house). The front right hand room
has a wooden reeded pilaster chimneypiece with a C19 cast-iron grate and a
pilastered elliptically headed alcove. Both front rooms have panelled
window shutters. In the back range there are thin ceiling joists and the
left hand gable end stack has a renewed granite lintel and in the rear
lateral stack a rebuilt fireplace with a C2O range.
The roof over the back range has reset lapped collars and principals and the
front range has a pegged softwood structure.
