5/160 Solland Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Early C17 possibly with medieval origins, altered in C19. Rendered cob
walls. Thatch roof gabled to left end hipped to right end. Slightly projecting
rendered rubble stack at left gable end with brick shaft, brick axial stack and
projecting rubble and granite ashlar lateral stack at rear with brick shaft. A
brick stack adjoins it.
Plan: 3-room-and-through-passage plan with lower end to the right possibly extended
at the higher end. Hall stack backs onto the passage, lower room heated by rear
lateral stack. The house was probably extended at the higher end in the C18 or C19
when an untreated wing was also added to the rear of it. In the early - mid C19 a
passage was created between the hall and inner room and stairs put into the rear
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4 window front of circa early C20 small-paned 2
and 3-light casements. To left of centre is C19 6-panel door with rectangular
fanlight above. In front of the right-hand end of the house a cob wall has been
built enclosing a small courtyard and a C19 4-panel door opens from the house into
it. At the rear a wide wing projects from the right-hand end with a cob leanto to
its left.
Interior: hall has a framed beamed ceiling but the beams are cased in plaster. The
higher end wall has a section of C17 panelling which would have formed a rack to a
bench. C18 roof structure which is of simple pegged A-frame type but the existence
of one apparently smoke-blackened common rafter by the hall stacks suggest that a
medieval roof preceeded it.
