Farmhouse now private house. Probably early to mid C17, extended to rear in mid C17
and remodelled in circa 1700. Stone rubble with granite quoins. Rag slate roof with
gable ends and brick end stacks. Rear wing on left with gable end and brick end
Plan : Original plan uncertain. The rear wing has circa mid C17 details and the
front range circa late C17 or C18 plasterwork and panelling. However, the granite
quoins on the left hand gable end indicate that the front range predates the rear
wing and there is a thick stone wall between the 2 ranges. Front range of 2 room and
central entrance plan, heated by end stacks; probably originally with cross passage
and stair accommodated in projection to rear. Wing of 1 room plan to rear of left
hand room heated by gable end stack. In circa late C18 an outshot extension was
added to the rear of the right hand room and the outshot was remodelled to form a
continuous range, incorporating the stair projection to the rear of the front range,
the right hand gable end was probably also rebuilt.
Exterior : 2 storeys, partly with cellar. Symmetrical 5 window front with dressed
stone segmental arches to ground floor openings. Renewed C20 12-pane sashes.
Central entrance with C18 6-panel door which has been widened. Rear wing to left has
pair of C20 metal frame windows and pair of late C19 6-pane sashes above, both with
bowtell-moulded timber lintels.
Interiors : Front range has complete early C18 moulded plaster cornices on ground
floor with moulded oval ceiling panel and central floral motif to right hand room.
The right hand room also has an early C19 hob grate, the chimneypiece replaced in
C20. Raised and fielded panel above the fireplace and 2 circa early C18 china
cupboards to right and left. Left hand room has C18 raised and fielded cupboard
doors. Slate flag floors. Circa mid C20 stair. Bedrooms of front range have
complete circa late C17 or early C18 plaster cornices of ovolo and cyma recta section
and cyma recta section. The left hand bedroom has a bolection moulded chimney-piece
and the right hand bedroom early C18 raised and fielded panelled cupboard doors. The
rear wing has chamfered floor joists with straight cut stops and the bedroom above
has a chamfered timber lintel to the fireplace. Roof structure replaced in late C19
and C20.
Unspoilt farmhouse with unusually complete early C18 detailing. In close proximity
