Hayne Farmhouse and garden walls
and railings to the south


Farmhouse including stone garden walls with iron railings. 1837 (datestone)
incorporating parts of a circa late C17 building. The 1837 range stone rubble
brought to course with ashlar dressings; slate roof with deep eaves, gabled at ends;
end stacks with brick chimney shafts. The earlier building, adjoining at the left is
whitewashed rendered cob with a lower slate roof hipped at the left end with an axial
Later alterations have obscured the original plan of the late C17 house, part of
which was probably adapted as service rooms when the 1837 range was erected
incorporating a fireplace and some walling of the right-hand end of the earlier
house. The early C19 plan is 2 rooms wide, 1« rooms deep with a wide central passage
leading into a full height rear stair hall. A rear right turret with a hipped slate
roof is not tied into the main block and was probably a circa mid C19 addition for a
washroom or flushing lavatory. 2 storeys. 3-bay symmetrical front to the main range
with a central flat roofed stone porch with ashlar stone piers of square section tied
into stone rubble porch walls below a timber cornice. The 6-panel front door has a
panelled soffit and rectangular fanlight with hexagonal glazing bars. Fenestration
of contemporary 16-pane sashes except ground floor window left which is a tripartite
sash with small panes; 18 over 24 to the central light and 3 over 4 to the flanking
Interior The main range has a grand central stair hall with a fine open well rear
stair with a landing, stick balusters and a ramped handrail wreathed round a barley
sugar iron post with a finial. Good contemporary joinery throughout including doors
with panelled soffits. Decorated plaster wall frieze to ground floor room rear
right. Ground floor room front left has a stone floor, renovations in progress at
time of survey (1985) have exposed a circa late C17 fireplace, the 1837 timber
chimney piece is in the possession of the owners. Access to the washroom turret is
from the stair landing only, a drain from the ground floor of the turret leads out to
the rear of the house. C19 king post and strut roof trusses to the main range, the
earlier range has circa late C19/early C20 roof trusses.
The low stone wall with iron railings and a gate to the garden in front of the house
ramps up to the house on the right return.
The 1837 range is of a high quality for its type in the region and the design is
unusual in that the window of the principal room in an otherwise symmetrical front
appears to retain the earlier distinction between the hall and the rest of the house.
