5/60 Goulds Leary Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Principally early C17 but extended at left end probably in C18, the
lower (right) end partially rebuilt in C19 with further alterations throughout circa
1970. Stone rubble and rendered cob with some brick at right end. Thatch roof,
hipped at left end, gable end to right. Axial brick stack backing onto passage and
brick shaft to rebuilt stone rubble stack with brick dressings and projecting bread
oven at right end.
Plan Probably originally a 2 room and cross-passage plan with hall to left heated
by axial stack backing onto cross-passage. The cross-passage formerly contained an
internal winder staircase to the front just to left of entrance doorway, but this
was removed in the C20 alterations and a staircase introduced running up beside the
lower wall of the cross-passage by taking in part of the lower end. The gable end
wall of the latter was rebuilt in the C19, so the stack may well be an insertion of
that date. The hall, until the C20 alterations, was divided at its upper end by a
partition creating a small inner room (formerly used as a fowl house) but the even
spacing of the ceiling beams and the fact that none show signs of original morticing
suggest this partition was itself a later insertion. Beyond the hall, the former
stables with loft over have been taken into form part of the dwelling, but they are
clearly a later, probably C18 addition to the original core as evidenced by the
straight joint to the front wall and the solid wall rising to the apex of the roof
between them and the hall. Dairy extension to rear.
2 storeys. 5 window range. Late C19/C20 two and 3-light casements. Lean-to thatch
roof to porch. C17 ovolo-moulded inner door surround.
Interior Roughly dressed stone jambs to hall fireplace which has cloam bread oven
and roughly chamfered lintel with run out stops. Hollow-step stopped, chamfered
cross ceiling beams and bressumers. The thick cob partition between cross-passage
and lower end, which has scroll-stopped bressumer and ceiling beam, suggests the
latter may itself have been rebuilt in the mid to late C17. Double rebated ovolo-
moulded fireplace lintel brought from Hele Manor, Barnstaple and reset here in C20.
Roof trusses entirely C18 or early C19 with pegged trusses and lapped collars. No
sign of smoke-blackening.
