6/7 Crosses Hole Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Possibly late C16, with later additions and alterations. Random rubble
chert; gable end roof with concrete pantiles. Originally a 3-room, through-passage
house plan, the service end to the right and adjoining this (on the same alignment)
a former byre now converted into part of the house. A later (and smaller) extension
to the higher end. Rear service end heated by former end stack; hall stack backs
onto the passage (which is now blocked to the rear) all the stacks have brick shafts
The house is of jointed cruck construction stacks. 2 storeys.
Exterior Front: 4 window range. All windows mid to late C20; 4 half dormers; 2 and
3-light casement windows to ground floor. Rear catslide over outshut.
Interior: service end with largely rebuilt fireplace and deeply chamfered axial
ceiling beam with rounded stops. Short stretch of plank and muntin screen between
service end and passage. Hall fireplace with plain chamfered lintel, the sides of
the hearth composed of single stones. Intersecting chamfered ceiling beams to hall
forming 5 panels. Between the hall and inner room is a plank and muntin screen;
chamfered unmitred muntins visible to inner room side; the hall side with a later
screen attached with scratch moulding. Roof with 2 jointed crucks. Commander
Williams believes that a blocked opening in the closed truss between inner room and
hall was a solar window overlooking an originally open hall, which must always have
been heated by a fireplace. The other truss (at the higher end) was part of a half-
hip structure, a building method more frequently encountered in Somerset than Devon.
(Roof space not inspected; Commander William's report is dated July 1984).
