BERE FERRERS
SX 46 NW
2/8 Helstone Farmhouse
-
- II

Farmhouse. C17 with possibly earlier wing, considerably modernised in circa mid
C19. Rubble walls, rendered at rear and slate hung to first floor at the front.
Gable ended slate roof. Projecting rubble stack at each gable end, those to left-
hand end and rear wing are rendered. Projecting rendered rubble lateral stack at
rear.
Rear wing with gable end stack and adjoining stair projection may represent the
oldest part of the house to which a 3-room-and-through-passage plan building was
added at right angles to the higher left end in the C17. This had lower room to
left;inner and lower rooms heated by gable end stack and hall heated by rear lateral
stack, possibly with stairs in a projection adjoining. The house was considerably
modernised internally probably in the mid C19 when original features such as beams
and open fireplaces are likely to have been concealed and the rear of the passage
blocked.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4 window front of mainly 3 light, small paned casements.
1st floor window left of centre is 2 lights, this window and the one to its right
are C18 with H-hinges and the old glass surviving. The other windows are probably
C19. To left of centre is small C20 slate roofed porch with double glazed doors and
C19 part glazed door behind. At the rear to the right of the lateral stack is a
small rectangular projection probably for a staircase though it is unclear whether
it is original or not. There is a similar projection on the outer face of the rear
wing adjoining the stack.
Interior not inspected,believed to have the visible early features. No access to
roof space.
This house preserves an attractive traditional exterior and is likely to conceal
some early internal features.
