8/98 Lower Goodameavy Farmhouse


Farmhouse. C17 possibly with some earlier fabric, considerably altered in later
C20. Granite rubble walls, partially rendered, with some large granite blocks
incorporated in the former shippon. Gable ended asbestos slate roof. Large stone
rubble lateral stack at rear, the shaft of which has probably been rebuilt in C19.
Rendered, probably stone rubble, axial stack and brick shaft at right of right-hand
At present the building has an L-shaped plan with a long shippon - very recently
converted to accommodation - running downhill at right angles to the main house
which originally probably had a 2 or 3 room-and-through-passage plan. It is
possible that the shippon represents the remnant of an earlier longhouse, the house
part of which was replaced in the C17 by another structure (the present house)
running at right angles from the higher end. This later section now consists of 2
larger rooms at either end - the left-hand one heated by the rear lateral stack, the
right-hand one originally unheated - with a small heated room at the centre and the
stairs in a projection to the front of it. The proportions of these 2 right-hand
rooms may have been altered in the C20. The shippon has now been converted to
accommodation and incorporates the stair projection at its higher end.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 1 window front with long shippon, projecting to front of
right-hand end. Late C20 casements, 2-light on the 1st floor 3-light on the ground
floor, with small panes. Entry in left-hand gable end under lean-to porch. The
former shippon has window to left of centre. At the lower end are 3 granite formed
slits, 1 are the 1st floor. At this end also are some massive rough granite
grounders and quoins.
Interior has no early features visible.
