5/4 Eastbrook Farmhouse
-
- II
Farmhouse. Probably mid C17. Plastered stone rubble, maybe with cob; stone rubble
stack and chimneyshaft, now extended with C20 brick; concrete tile roof, formerly
thatch.
Plan: 3-room plan house facing south-east. The small left end room is unheated and
may have been a dairy originally but has since been converted to an entrance hall
with the main staircase. An axial stack serving back-to-back fireplaces is set
between the two main rooms. The centre room was probably the original kitchen and
the right end room was the parlour. There is a lobby entrance in front of the
stack. Outshots to rear of the former kitchen and dairy may be integral. Main
house is 2 storeys and 2-storey C20 extension to rear of right room.
Exterior: irregular 5-window front of early C20 casements with glazing bars. The
main front doorway is right of centre and now contains a C20 door behind a
contemporary gabled porch. Secondary doorway at left end also contains a C20 door
behind a contemporary porch. The plaster on the front is incised as ashlar. Roof
is gable-ended. To rear the roof is carried down over the early outshots and there
is here a Cl7 oak 4-light window with chamfered mullions.
Interior: only a limited internal inspection was available at the time of this
survey. The centre room has a soffit-chamfered crossbeam with pyramid stops and the
right room crossbeam has rough soffit-chamfers. Both fireplaces are blocked by C20
grates. The roof was not available for inspection.
Although the house was modernised in the early C20 the work appears to have been
superficial.
