Farmhouse. Late C16-early C17; hall bay of mid C17, altered circa 1880, with some
C20 alterations. Granite and slatestone rubble, granite dressings partly rendered.
Slate roof with gable ends, rear lateral stack to left and gable end brick stack to
right.
Plan: The house is now of 2-room plan, but originally probably would have extended by
one room to the left end. Originally probably a 3-room and through passage plan;
with the lower end room to left, the passage, hall and inner room to right. The hall
is heated by a rear lateral stack, the inner room by a gable end stack. In the mid
C17, the hall was extended by the addition of a projecting bay including the rear
lateral stack. Probably in the late C19, the lower end was demolished; the lower end
gable wall was rebuilt with quoins to the front and without quoins to the rear. The
passage door was blocked, and a window inserted; a new doorway was made, giving
access to a small hallway between the hall and the inner room, and a straight stair
inserted between these 2 rooms. The site of the original stair is not clear. Also
in the C19, a doorway was formed from the rear right of the hall bay, to give acces
to an unheated single storey outshut, which served as scullery/dairy. It is unusual
that the hall bay is to the rear of the house; it may be that the house has been re-
oriented, and was originally approached from what is now the rear. The site of the
original opposing door to the passage is clear, but the door surround has been
removed, so the original orientation is not clear.
2 storeys, ground floor has pointed arched doorway to left, blocked, with small 16-
pane sash inserted of eary C19. To right, two 2-light 3-pane C19 casements, one with
timber lintel and one with granite lintel; C19 4-panelled door with overlight. To
end right, similar 2-light casement. At first floor there are 3 similar casements
under eaves. The left side is rebuilt, with quoins to front but not to rear;
rendered. The right side has buttress of C19, and quoins to front. The rear has a
single storey outshut behind the inner room, with C20 6-pane light to rear and C20
door to inner side. To right, the hall bay has a ground floor 3-light window with
granite surround, chamfered, with 2-centred arched heads to lights. The stack is
external, with a brick chimney, and a curved oven, probably a late addition, to the
right side; this would have been added when the hall became a hall/kitchen. To the
right, the former rear passage doorway, blocked, with 4-pane sash inserted and plain
granite lintel.
Interior This was much remodelled in the late C19. In the inner room, C19 ceiling
beams alternate with beams from the original build, which have step stops. In the
hall, the fireplace to the rear lateral stack has been rebuilt. The walls between
the hall and the entrance hallway, and the inner room, are both stud partitions.
