5/193 Lower Badworthy including
outbuilding adjoining
- north east

- II

House, formerly a farmhouse, and adjoining outbuilding. Probably C17, largely
rebuilt in circa early C19.. Granite rubble. Asbestos slate roof with hipped higher
end, gabled lower end with Welsh slates. Formerly probably slate hung at front,
remains of slate hanging in panels below first floor windows. Rendered lateral
stack rising from rear wall. Former end stack at ridge at higher end. Probably
originally a three room and through passage plan with internal rear lateral hall
stack and later end stack heating inner room. But plan much altered in early C19
including the entire rebuilding of the lower end and extensive rebuilding and
heightening of higher end, insertion of a doorway into front of inner room and
the addition of an outbuilding with loft above at higher end. Two storeys. Regular
five window range. C19 three-light casement with glazing bars and flat stone arches.
Left hand first floor window originally loft loading door, the doorway below has
slate canopy on large granite cantilevered corbels. The main front doorway to
left of centre with slate canopy. Right hand end doorway into lower room. All
doorways have C20 doors. Right hand lower end doorway into shippon and external
stone stairs to loft loading door above. Rear wall has little fenestration but
has narrow window to side of lateral stack which was probably originally a stair
window. Interior not fully inspected. Rear lateral stack in former hall has lintel
roughly chamfered with run-out stops end surprisingly of timber and not granite.
Small higher end fireplace with rough unchamfered granite lintel suggests this
stack is later insertion and that inner room was probably unheated originally.
Present front doorway enters lobby in higher end room. Position of stairs uncertain.
Early C19 panelled window shutters to front ground floor windows.
