2/160 Tinten Manor Farmhouse
House. Circa late C16. Probably partly rebuilt in C18. Stone rubble with granite
quoins. Slate roof with gable ends and lower slate roof with gable end to rear wing.
'Brick end stack on left, brick rear lateral stack and projecting rendered stone
rubble end stack on right. Brick end stack to rear wing.
Plan: Original plan uncertain. The front range on south west probably comprised a 3
room and cross or through passage plan with passage entrance to left of centre. The
lower left hand room (on north west) heated by an end stack, the hall probablt
originally heated by a rear lateral stack and the inner room on right by a projecting
end stack., In circa mid C19 a stair was inserted in the passage, possibly replacing
an earlier stair and in circa C19 or C20 the partition between the hall and inner
room was probably removed. The wing to rear of the inner room on the east appears,
although partly rebuilt, to have late C16 or early C17 origins; 1 room and passage
plan with the room on right (north east) heated by an end stack and the entrance on
left, entering a passage which runs parallel to the rear wall of the main range and
gives access to a service outshot which was added in the C19 across the rear
elevation of the rear wing. As full interior inspection was not possible the
chronological development of the house is uncertain. It is however, possible that
the rear wing is circa late C16 or early C17 and that the front range was partly
rebuilt in the C18. C15 remains were recorded in Kelly Directory of 1935.
Exterior: 2-storeys and cellar. Regular 4 window south west front with dressed
stone arches to ground floor windows. Wide large 16-pane hornless sash on left,
dressed round arch to entrance to left of centre, with fanlight and partly glazed
door with C20 glazed porch in front. Hornless 16-pane sash and late C19 or early C20
tripartite sash to right. First floor has hornless 16-pane sash to left and 3 late
C19 or C20 4-pane sashes. C20 rendered porch on right hand gable end. Rear wing
with lower 2-storey range which has a blocked opening and straight joint near the
centre of the front elevation. C20 brick porch.
Interior: Partition between hall and inner room removed and fireplaces altered.
Entrance to rear wing has a circa late C16 door of 2-ply construction with strap
hinges terminating in fleur-de-lys. Chamfered ceiling beams to passage beyond.
First floor and stair not accessible at time of inspection (1986).
