4/120 South Barwick Farmhouse
- II
Farmhouse. Circa early-mid C17 with C19 alterations. Rendered cob walls. Hipped
thatch roof. 2 axial brick stacks, one to main range one to front wing, and rear
lateral stack of rendered rubble.
Plan: 4-room and through-passage plan with wing at front of right-hand end. The
main range appears to be all integral but with so few early features exposed this
cannot be verified and it is possible that the left-hand end is an addition. The
wing in fact exhibits the most recognisably early features - probably mid C17 - and
as this is presumably a later addition the main range could be circa early C17. The
room to the left of the passage is heated by an axial stack, that to the right by a
rear lateral stack and the inner room of the wing is also heated by an axial stack.
The outer room beyond it is an outbuilding. The house was modernised in the C19 and
a small rear addition made behind the right-hand end which was made 2 storeys in the
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front of early C20 small-paned 2-light
casements on the first floor and late C19/early C20 4-pane sashes below apart from
mid C20 metal frame casement to the right. C19 6-panel door with flat doorhood to
right of centre. Long lower wing projecting from right-hand end with C19 plank door
at right-hand end. Outer face of wing has 3-light C17 ovolo-moulded wooden mullion
window on ground floor.
Interior: room to right of passage has substantial plastered ceiling beams. C17
ovolo-moulded wooden doorframe in wing. Roof-space not inspected but only 1 pair of
substantial straight principals visible on first floor which may be C17, otherwise
timbers probably replaced in C19 or C20.
