Hacra Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Probably later C17 (court-cupboard dated 1678);
extended, and altered in late C18 or earlier C19. Coursed
rubble with quoins, the front white-washed; stone slate roof
on 2 levels. Two-unit plan on north-south axis, facing east,
with a full-height rear outshut and a 1-unit extension at the
south end.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, 1+3 windows. The earlier 3-window portion
has a small lean-to porch offset left of centre, with a
doorway in the left side and a re-located round-headed 1-light
window in the front wall and a similar window in the
right-hand side; a rectangular 6-pane sash to the left and a
similar but slightly smaller window to the left of that (in
the position of a fire-window); 2 small oblong 6-pane sashes
offset right above these; and one similar window on each floor
to the right. All these sashes have vertical glazing bars
only. This portion has chimneys at both gables, that to the
left coupled with a chimney to the extension, which has a
doorway to the left, a small recessed 9-pane window to the
right and a 6-pane sash at 1st floor (like the others). Rear
has remains of some earlier windows, including a blocked
chamfered stairwindow and a 2-light mullioned window above and
to the left of this, now lacking the mullion.
INTERIOR: the former housepart (to left), now sub-divided by
an inserted partition, has a pair of stop-chamfered axial
beams tenoned into the bressumer of a former smokehood, and
the original lower-end partition (now in passage) incorporates
a fine built-in court-cupboard with 3 tiers of cupboards, the
top tier set back and elaborately carved with scrollwork,
under a carved mantel which is lettered "I:C:A" "1678". At the
rear of the main range is a sunk dairy which has stone
shelving all round and a small well in the floor.
Forms a group with barn approx. 15m east (qv).
