- Road Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Late C16-early C17 origins, extensively refurbished and enlarged in mid
C19. Plastered cob on exposed rubble footings; stone rubble stacks topped with
C19 brick; slate roof.
South-east facing main block has an altered 3-room-and-through-passage plan with
inner room at right (north-eastern) end. Inner room has end stack, hall has axial
stack backing onto passage and service end room has rear lateral stack. From each
end mid C19 service blocks project at right angles and on left end is a C20
extension. Service end rear block has end stack. 2 storeys.
Regular but not symmetrical 4-window front of mid C19 sashes. On the first floor,
left of centre and over the door, is a 20-pane (8/12) sash. The rest are 25-pane
(10/15) sashes and those on ground floor have late C19-early C20 external plank
shutters. The doorway now contains a C20 door behind a contemporary gabled and
slate-roofed porch. Low pitch roof is hipped each end. The outshot contains
casements some with glazing bars. Both rear blocks are gable-ended.
Interior: shows mostly C19 joinery detail and plaster but some earlier features are
exposed in the main house. The service end room has a late C16-early C17 hollow
chamfer and ovolo moulded crossbeam with no stops and the contemporary stone
fireplace in the back wall has a soffit-chamfered and step stopped intel. The
hall has a C17 rubble fireplace with a cambered, soffit-chamfered oak lintel
resting on oak pads. Other early features probably survive behind later plaster.
Roof of Cl9 king post trusses throughout.
