3/86 Yardworthy Farmhouse

Farmhouse with adjoining stables. Probably C18, enlarged and refurbished in mid C19.
Granite stone rubble with large dressed granite quoins, plastered to the front;
granite stacks topped with C20 brick; slate roof (formerly thatch).
Plan and development: L-shaped building with the main block facing south-south-east,
say south. The original house is the 2-room section at the left (west) end and then
it had a right end stack to the larger room. Now these 2 rooms have been knocked
together. In the mid C19 the house was extended to right (east). A new staircase
and entrance hall were provided against the back of the stack and a parlour beyond
with an end stack. A straight join between the 2 builds shows to rear. At the same
time a stable block was built projecting forwards at right angles from the left
(west) end. Irregularities in the walling may suggest that this was a rebuilding of
an earlier block. 2 storeys.
Exterior: irregular 3-window front, the right 2-window section of horned 12-pane
sashes and the left 1-window section of C20 casements with glazing bars. Main front
doorway a little right of centre contains a C20 plank door and a segmental fanlight
containing C19 radial pattern of glazing bars. The head of the fanlight is made from
a single piece of granite. Secondary door at the left end contains a C19 plank door
behind a C20 porch with monopitch roof of corrugated iron. The inner side of the
stable block has a central stable-type door flanked by granite buttresses and a fixed
pane window each side. Row of pigeon holes over the right window. Both roofs are
gable-ended. The rear of the main block shows that the roof of the older section was
raised when the house was extended.
Interior has plain carpentry detail. Roof not inspected.
