4/110 Fursdon Farmhouse
- II

Farmhouse. Circa early C17 possibly with earlier origins, altered and extended in
C19. Rendered cob and rubble walls. Roof is thatched to left-hand part, hipped at
the end, slated to the right-hand part with higher eaves and gabled at the right
end. 2 brick stacks, one axial and one at right gable end. Projecting rubble
lateral stack to rear.
Plan: 3-room and through passage plan originally, lower room to the left, heated by
rear lateral stack. Hall stack backing onto passage. In the C19 the house was
extended at the higher end by an extra room and the hall and inner room refronted
with the eaves raised either at this stage or in the C20, when the thatch was
removed from this end. Later C19 and C20 extensions were made at the rear.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front, the right-hand part has a
symmetrical 3-window front of C20 2 and 3-light casements with C20 glazed door at
its left-hand end and part-glazed door at centre. The left-hand thatched part has
an early C20 2-light casement on the first floor and a later C20 3-light casement
below to left and 1-light window to right. C19 plank door to passage beyond.
Interior: hall has framed ceiling of intersecting moulded beams. The remainder of
the interior was not accessible and an early roof structure may survive.
