2/125 Stone Farmhouse

Farmhouse. C16 origins. C18 and C19 alterations. Rendered colourwashed stone, some
cob, scantle slate roof gabled at ends, rendered lateral stack on front, brick shaft
at right gable end, further brick shafts to rear. The original plan may have been a
rear courtyard house, the rear range now in use as a barn and a 3 room and through
passage house at the front. The front range is now a 2 room and through passage plan
with a rear right wing which adjoins the barn above a cart entrance. A separate
dwelling at the higher end, demolished in the C20, may have been the inner room. The
front range is now 2 span and it is likely that a rear outshut has been raised into a
2-storey block. The roof of the front range has been raised at the higher end of the
through passage. 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front with irregular
fenestration. C16 moulded arched stopped granite doorway has blind trefoils carved
in the spandrels below a square-headed hoodmould with 1 round, 1 square label stop.
Doorway retains old gudgeon hooks. Massive front lateral stack with set-offs.
Blocked opening at ground floor left; 3-light C19 casement, 6 panes per light, to
left of stack; similar 2-light casement to right of stack; 8-pane sash to right of
doorway. 4 first floor windows, all 3-light C19 casements, 6-panes per light.
Interior 1 circa mid C16 truss survives in the rear right wing, with chamfered
principals with curved feet, diagonally set ridge and 1 tier of threaded purlins, 1
purlin surviving. The truss has virtually failed and concrete block wall has been
built to support the roof. Roof timbers elsewhere are said to be more recent.
Slates throughout are fixed to rafters with wooden pegs. The fireplace to the front
lateral stack is partly blocked and may conceal earlier features. In the late C15
the Stone heiress married Harris of Radford in Hooe.
