7/3 Beckaford Farmhouse
- II

Farmhouse. Mid C17, much altered in C19. Granite rubble walls, rendered at rear
and sides. Chimney stacks rendered. Slate roof gabled at either end.
3-room and either through or cross-passage (no rear doorway at present) plan with
axial stack to hall backing onto passage. Gable end stacks at either end. Much
rebuilding in C19 when the eaves were raised although the original plan was
preserved. Room above lower end converted to store, external stairs at rear since
2-storey. Regular 4-window south-east front, late C20 2-light casements. Passage
doorway to right of centre with large C20 stone porch and glazed door. Similar
door to right into lower room.
Interior: the only original feature visible is the hall fireplace which has a
slightly cambered ovolo-moulded wooden lintel with run-out stops and monolithic
granite jambs, chamfered with ball stops. Late C18/early C19 pegged roof survives.
Although little can be seen of the original C17 house, the plan is preserved
despite alterations and the surviving fireplace is of a surprisingly good quality.
It is possible that more original features exist which are now concealed.
