4/35 Buskin Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C16 with C17 addition and C19 alteration. Rendered cob walls. Gable
ended slate roof formerly thatched. 3 stone stacks - 2 axial, constructed of
granite ashlar with brick shafts. Rendered projecting rubble stack at right gable
Plan: 3-room and through-passage plan which may originally have been open to the
roof but lack of access to it makes this uncertain. Both the lower room (to the
left) and the hall have axial fireplaces backing on to the passage. The inner room
is heated by a gable end fireplace. In the C17 an outshut was added at the rear of
the hall. A stair was added in a projection adjoining it in the C18. In the C19 a
cross-passage was created to the staircase at the higher end of the hall.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 5-window front of C19 2 and 3-light casements,
C20 to the right on the ground floor. Part glazed door to left of centre with
shallow area projection to right of centre. At rear is outshut at centre with a 2-
light chamfered wooden mullion window (now blocked) in its left-hand higher end
wall. Partly blocking this is the stair projection.
Interior: Hall has a framed ceiling of chamfered beams, some witn pyramid stops
making 6 panels, interrupted by inserted wall at higher end. Inner room has
chamfered cross beams. Fireplaces have been blocked.
The plain exterior of this house belies an interesting interior with high quality
hall ceiling and other early features likely to be concealed.
