2/3 East Down Farmhouse

Farmhouse. C17 or earlier core, C19 alterations, C20 renovations. Colourwashed and
rendered, probably cob on stone rubble footings, some brick, slate roof hipped at
left end of main range, gabled at right end, front left wing gabled at end. Axial
stack, end stack to main range, slightly projecting gable end brick stack to front
The original plan was probably 2 rooms and through passage with the hall stack
backing on to the passage. The front left wing, adjoining the hall is probably also
C17 in origin but may have been a later kitchen addition and has been partly rebuilt
in brick. Disturbance to the right return wall of the inner room suggest that it has
either been rebuilt or possibly the range extended further.
2 storeys. 2-window asymmetrical front to the main range with a front wing to the
left and a C20 porch in the left-hand angle between the wing and the main range. The
front door into the through passage has a wide open-fronted porch with a sloping
slate roof carried on stone cheeks, (the rear through passage door is blocked under a
timber lintel). C20 2-light casements with glazing bars, the first floor windows
under raking roofs rising slightly above the eaves line.
Interior Open fireplace to the hall with stone jambs and a plain timber lintel,
chamfered ceiling beam. The wing has a chamfered cross beam and exposed joists.
Roofspace not inspected but may be of interest.
