SS 60 SW
5/39 Shilstone Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C17, possibly with earlier origins, late C20 extension. Plastered cob
walls. Gable ended thatched roof. 2 brick stacks, 1 axial and 1 at left-hand gable
end, 1 projecting rendered rubble stack at gable end of wing.
Plan: L-shaped plan - may have started as 3-rooms-and-through-passage, lower end to
the left, with hall stack backing on to the passage. Probably in circa late C17 the
higher end was remodelled as a 1-room plan wing projecting to the front and heated
by ane end stack. In the early C19 the house was modernised and in the C20 an
extension was added at the rear.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2-window front with equal-sized wing to the
right. 3 and 4-light C19 casements on first floor with early C19 16-pane hornless
sash on ground floor to the left. To its right is contemporary 6-panel door with
doorhood above supported on wooden brackets. Wing has similar 16-pane sash on first
floor and C20 3-light casement below. Thatch rises in eyebrow over first floor
window. At the gable end of the wing is a blocked window opening on each floor. At
rear of house is C20 1-storey addition.
Interior : Inaccessible at time of survey but likely to contain original features
such as beams, open fireplaces and possibly an early roof structure although these
may have been concealed by C19 modernisation and there may also be good quality
early C19 joinery.
