5/92 Coombe Farmhouse and adjoining
- outbuilding to west
- II
Farmhouse. Circa mid C17 possibly with earlier origins with C19 addition.
Plastered cob walls. Gable ended thatch roof, corrugated iron to outbuilding.
Brick axial stack offset from ridge and projecting plastered rubble stack with brick
shaft at right gable end.
Plan: originally 3-room and through passage plan but lower end to the left rebuilt
as shippon in C18. Hall stack backs onto passage. Inner room remodelled probably
in C19 to form a small parlour at the front and a dairy at the rear. C19 outshut
added behind hall and higher end.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front. The right-hand windows on each
floor are late C18 or early C19 horizontal sliding sash windows of 18 panes - an
unusual survival. Central first floor window is 3-light circa early C20 small-paned
casement, 1 light C20 casement to its left. Late C20 top-light-opening single pane
casement at centre on ground floor. C20 plank door to its left. To its right is
small pointed arched head niche probably a bee-bole. Outbuilding at left-hand end
projects slightly with door at centre and first floor loading hatch to its right.
Interior: hall has fireplace with roll-moulded granite jambs and chamfered wooden
lintel with jewel and hollow stops. Similarly decorated closely-spaced
insubstantial cross beams. Roof trusses probably C19 - feet of insubstantial
straight principals visible on first floor.
