Hallowell Farm

(Formerly listed as: Hallowell Farmhouse)


House formerly farmhouse. C17 possibly with earlier origins. Lime-washed rubble
walls. Gable ended slate roof with crested ridge tiles and corrugated asbestos roof
to right-hand addition. Brick shaft to left gable end, projecting rendered rubble
stack with offsets to right-hand gable end with brick shaft. Large projecting
rendered rubble lateral stack with oven projection at rear.
Originally 3-room-and-through-passage-plan, higher end to right, with hall heated
by rear lateral stack and inner room by gable end stack; lower room to left may
originally have been unheated. Modified internally in C18, possibly at this stage
the rear door of the passage was blocked. Probably C18 and C19 barn extensions
added respectively at left and right-hand ends.
2 storeys. Regular but not symmetrical 6 window front with 3-window extension to
right and barn to left. All late C20 aluminium framed casements except for first
floor left-hand window which is 2 light C20 wood casement and ground floor window
left of centre which is C19 2 light casement with small panes. Gabled C20 porch to
left of main section with C20 plank door. To right of centre is C20 plank door
under gabled porch hood. Attached at left-hand end is lower C18 barn extension
which has wide shouldered doorway with wooden lintel and slit opening above and to
the right of it. At right and end is a further barn extension probably C19, now
converted to domestic accommodation with 3 regularly spaced C20 2-light casements on
ground floor which have brick arches, slit opening on first floor towards either
end. Attached at the end of this is a taller building originally possibly a stable
now also converted.
Interior: Behind the left-hand porch the C17 front doorway survives with square-
headed ovolo-moulded wooden frame which has worn bar stops. The left-hand, lower,
room has 3 chamfered cross beams with indistinct, probably hollow step stops. Two
2-panelled C18 doors survive on the ground floor. The right-hand/inner room has a
probably C18 corner cupboard with arched opening and dentilled cornice. This room
has a simple coved plaster cornice likely to be contemporary. Original fireplaces
have been blocked but may still survive. Roof trusses not inspected but according
to owner trusses over main house are sawn timbers, those over the barn extension are
pegged, probably C18/C19 timbers.
