Listing Text

3/150 South Wilborough Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C17, probably with earlier origins, with C18 and C19 additions.
Rendered rubble/cob walls. Hipped thatched roof. 3 rendered rubble projecting
stacks : one at right gable end has brick shaft; large lateral stack to front at
centre and at rear of left-hand end. Brick shaft at gable end of rear wing.
3-room and through-passage plan lower end probably to left. Lower room heated by
rear lateral stack, hall by front lateral stack and inner room by gable end stack.
Dairy wing added probably in C18 at rear of inner room. C19 outshut behind hall.
2 storeys with attic over right-hand end where the ground level drops. Asymmetrical
4-window front. On ground and first floor to left are 3-light late C19/early C20
casements with glazing bars. C19 panelled and part glazed door to their right under
shallow slate doorhood which also extends over small C19 single light window to its
right which has small panes, and iron stanchion bars. The lateral stack projects to
its right. Beyond it all the windows are late C20 2-light casements without glazing
bars. To right of centre is C20 inserted plank door which is under a corrugated
iron roof which projects at the front forming a porch and extends over a small pump-
house. At the right-hand gable end on the second floor is a 3-light late C17/early
C18 wood mullion window with square section mullions which have beaded edges. At
the rear the dairy wing projects to the left with a C19 outshut to its right beyond
which is the gabled chimney stack projection.
Interior: the inner room has a roughly chamfered axial beam. The hall has a
chamfered cross-beam with no discernable stops. There is a bench along the inner
end partition of the hall which has an C18 wall cupboard above it with an arched
fielded-panelled door. In each main room the original fireplace has been blocked.
The dairy retains its slate slab floor. Roof trusses not inspected but according to
owner consist of rough straight principals with lapped and pegged collars, probably
C18 or C19.
To include limestone rubble garden wall projecting at front from the house with 2
square rubble gate piers; immediately in front of the house is a cobbled area. At
the rear immediately behind the left-hand gable end is a rubble gate pier with ball
finial which gives access to the farmyard.
This farmhouse is likely to conceal original internal features behind later
alterations and despite the modern windows it retains a relatively traditional
exterior and forms a remarkably unaltered group with its farm buildings.
