848-1/2/14 Marwoods Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C17 or possibly earlier. Rendered cob walls; steep asbestos roof with projecting eaves; brick lateral stack at rear; brick axial and end stacks to part on right.
PLAN: 3-room plan on the left with original hall to the centre of this; 2-room range added in the C17, or remodelled, right of this, and of deeper plan at the front; pantry and dairy outshut added in the C18 at rear.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys; 2:2-window range. 3 early C19 3-light casement windows with glazing bars and centre-opening lights, otherwise later casement windows with horizontal glazing bars only. Doorway left of right-hand range within late C20 conservatory.
INTERIOR: has been little altered and has old plaster surfaces in most rooms, many of the deep chamfered C17 crossbeams are also plastered over. In the hall and room left of the hall the beams are boxed in. The hall has a very large C17 fireplace with a wooden shelf on brackets over. In the room left of the hall is a very uneven fireplace wall arrangement provided for use as a washhouse.
There is a muntin and plank screen right of the hall and there is a small lobby taken out at the back of the hall giving separate access to a pair of doorways which lead from this into the pantry and dairy; old planked doors and there are 2 original windows lighting the outshut. The room right of the hall has a winder stair turret at its rear which retains its original window.
The plan form of the fireplaces in the right-hand part of the house suggest a C17 date. Later features of interest include a cast-iron grate with hobs in the room right of the hall. 1st floor and roof structure not inspected but said to be old, possibly original.
Marwoods Farmhouse retains much character and interest, particularly internally where it has the rare unspoilt atmosphere of a house that has not been altered in recent times.
