14/06/84 West Stonehouse Farmhouse and
attached garden wall
(Formerly Listed as:
Stonehouse Farmhouse and Barn to
Farmhouse. Probably late C17, much altered and extended at
both ends in C18 and C19; altered. White-painted rubble, the
centre portion random, with quoins, and the outer portions
coursed, also with quoins; stone slate roof. Single-depth
plan, 1+1+1 bays.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, 1:1:1 windows. The doorway is immediately
left of the vertical joint between the 1st and 2nd bays,
protected by a light wooden porch; to the left of this the 1st
bay has one square window on each floor to the left (8 and
6-pane top-hung casements); to the right the centre bay has a
6-pane top-hung casement at ground floor and a similar but
smaller 4-pane window offset to the right at 1st floor, with
the lintel of a former 2-light mullioned window, and the 3rd
bay has one similar top-hung casement on each floor. Gable
chimneys, and ridge chimney at junction of 2nd and 3rd bays.
The left gable wall has a top-hung casement on each floor near
the rear corner, and 2 cruciform tie-plates at eaves level.
The right-hand gable wall has a doorway protected by a roof
carried over from a lean-to outbuilding at the rear corner.
Approx. one metre in front of the house, and attached to the
west corner, is a low rubble wall which has a gateway in line
with the front door, and to the right of this incorporates the
dressed lintel of a former round-headed 1-light window, with a
panel containing crudely-formed and only partly legible raised
lettering "C I[?] [?] 1710".
INTERIOR: altered, but thick stone lateral partition walls
indicate that the centre was formerly a 1-unit 2-storey
dwelling (c.f. Basil Busk, qv, Blands, qv, Blea Beck, qv,
Roantree, qv, Low Ground, qv etc), a type which appears to
have been characteristic of this dale in the later C17.
Forms group with barn approx. 5m north (qv).
