(Formerly Listed as:
Mire House and barn to north-east)
Farmhouse, with added cottage, now all one dwelling. C17,
altered and remodelled in mid to later C18, with additions
(including cottage). Roughly-coursed mixed rubble with quoins
(front outshut painted white), graduated stone slate roof with
blue slates in the top courses. Linear single-depth plan on
east-west axis facing north, with additions to front and rear:
2-unit house (probably formerly with end baffle-entry) with
added rear outshut containing staircase and dairy, plus 2
service bays added at east end and front outshut added to
these; cottage added at west end.
EXTERIOR: 2 low storeys, 1:2:1 windows, with quoined vertical
joint to cottage. The front of the main range, remodelled in
the C18 to achieve a symmetrical effect, has a
segmental-headed doorway in the centre, with rubble voussoirs,
a fielded panelled door and an almost semicircular canopy on a
pair of long shaped brackets (now supported by added posts).
Left of the doorway are remains of a former mullioned window,
broken by a segmental-headed 20-pane hornless sashed window
with rubble voussoirs, right of it a small 4-pane sashed
window, and at 1st floor 2 similarly small sashes (12 and 4
panes). Corniced ridge chimneys at junctions with additions to
left and right. To the left a full-height lean-to (covering a
former 2-light mullioned window at 1st floor) has a doorway to
the right, a renewed 2-light casement to the left and a
round-headed 9-pane fixed window in the re-entrant side.
Cottage to right has narrow doorway and 9-pane fixed window
(with one opening pane) just above. East gable has flat-roofed
C20 addition; west gable (of cottage) has through-stones on 3
levels and 2-light mullioned window on each floor. Rear: wide
full-height outshut (covering most of original main range and
part of addition to east) has 2-light flush-mullioned window
near east end; various small sashed windows to all 3 portions.
INTERIOR: ground floor has 3 lateral beams, the 1st boxed, the
2nd with mortices of former joists and an inserted beam over
it, and the 3rd has mortices of a muntin-and-plank panelled
partition which has been re-located eastwards; "cat-malison"
cupboards attached to 1st beam and to top of panelled
partition, and numerous bacon hooks in ceiling to left of 1st
beam; large C18 stone fireplace in left room (thus formed),
built-in cupboard in rear wall with fielded panel doors, and
the top of a similar cupboard over a bureau of later date
built into alcove to left of fireplace; 2 pairs of gun-rings
in ceiling of kitchen; dog-legged stone staircase with 2
turned balusters per tread and moulded handrail; 2 C18
principal-rafter roof trusses with collars of light scantling
