SS 50 NW
3/15 Lake farmhouse and adjoining
- outbuilding to South

Farmhouse and adjoining outbuilding which is original house. Older part may be
early C16 if its screen is original. The present house is probably C18. Rendered
rubble and cob walls. Present house has gable ended thatch roof, outbuilding has
corrugated iron roof. Rendered rubble stack at right gable end of house.
Plan: original house now outbuilding - of 2 or 3 room-and-through-passage plan,
lower end to the left. The hall has a stack at its higher end, if there were an
inner room beyond, it was rebuilt as the present farmhouse. The lower end from the
evidence of the screen was divided into 2 service rooms. There is no evidence of
whether there was an open hall or not as the original roof timbers of this part are
all C20 but it could be inferred from the early date suggested by the screen. The
present house was added probably in the C18 at right angles to the original house at
the higher end of the hall and is of 2-room plan with central entry hall.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2 window front of 3-light metal frame casements.
Late C20 plank and glazed door to left. Long outbuilding wing projecting from left-
hand end which has a 2 window front. Right-hand 1st floor window is C17 4-light
chamfered wooden mullion window. C20 3-light casement below. C19 plank door at
left end to right of centre. Loading hatch above left-hand end.
Interior: former house, now outbuilding has heavy chamfered and hollow step-stopped
cross beams in right-hand room. Open fireplace with chamfered wooden lintel. At
lower side of passage is remains of early C16 good quality plank and muntin screen
from which the planks have been removed. It has a moulded headbeam and moulded
muntins. 2 shouldered-head wooden doorframes, also moulded.
