3/2 Batelease Farmhouse
- II
Farmhouse. C17, possibly earlier, refurbished in mid C19. Plastered cob on rubble
footings; stone rubble stacks topped with C19 brick; slate roof.
Originally a 3-room-and-through-passage plan house facing south-west with former
service room at left (north-west) end. Rear passage now blocked by stairs and
former inner room has been reduced in height and status (now a workshop). Left
end stack to former service room, large projecting rear lateral stack to hall and
axial (now appearing like end stack to hall) stack backing onto hall to former
inner room. Secondary 2-storey outshots across rear. 2 storeys.
Symmetrical 3-window front to main house (former service room, passage and hall)
comprising a variety of late C19 and C20 casements, the later ones without glazing
bars. Central part-glazed C20 door. Gable-ended roof. Inner room now has
monopitch roof and front has a late-C19 casement with glazing bars.
Interior shows C19 plaster, chimney pieces and joinery, except the workshop/former
inner room where stone rubble fireplace has soffit-chamfered and scroll stopped
fireplace and same finish to surviving half beam. Rest of main house appears to
preserve C17 layout and therefore early features probably survive behind C19
plaster. Roof of C19 king post trusses.
