3/192 South Forder Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C16 or C17, thoroughly modernised and new crosswing built circa 1970.
Plastered granite stone rubble; granite stacks with granite chimney shafts; thatch
roof. The extension is also plastered and built of regular snecked blocks of
unknown material and roof here too is thatched.
Plan: originally a 3-room-and-through-passage plan house facing south-east and built
down a hillslope. The inner room at the uphill left end has an end stack and the
hall has an axial stack backing onto the passage. Newel stair turret projecting
from front towards lower end of hall. Since no internal inspection was available at
the time of survey it is not possible to determine the development of the house
although it seems likely that it begun as a late medieval open hall house. Circa
1970 a 3-room plan crosswing was built across the lower (right) end projecting
forwards and back. Now 2 storeys although the former inner room appears to be
Exterior: irregular 3-window front of C20 casements of various sizes, most with
glazing bars. Similar rear fenestration and both passage doors are C20
replacements. The main block roof is gable-ended and the circa 1970 crosswing is
half-hipped each end.
Interior was not available for inspection at the time of this survey. Although the
circa 1970 modernisation was obviously thorough the irregularity of the fenestration
might indicate the retention of much of the early fabric.
