14/06/84 Green Farmhouse
(Formerly Listed as:
Green and Barns, one to SE, one

Farmhouse, now house. Probably mid C18, but perhaps
incorporating some earlier fabric; altered. Mixed random
rubble with quoins, the front white-washed, graduated slate
roof. Double-depth double-fronted plan plus lean-to dairy to
rear of right-hand half and lean-to peat-house attached to
right-hand gable wall.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and attic, 2 windows, almost symmetrical;
with a stone-slate band over the ground floor (interrupted by
the porch). The ground floor has a low but broad gabled porch
(added) with a square-headed open doorway offset left, a slate
drip-band over this, side-benches and an inner doorway with
C19 panelled door. Each floor has 2 almost square flat-arched
sashed windows, those to the left 8-paned (and the right-hand
jamb of that at ground floor overlapped by the porch) and
those to the right 6-paned, all with rubble voussoirs. The
roof has gable chimneys and gable copings (without kneelers).
The left gable wall has through-stones on 2 levels, a
stone-slate band at eaves level and a C20 porch near the rear
corner; the right-hand gable wall has a square attic window
blocked with stone slate. The rear has 2 altered windows to
the rear left room, a low stair-window in the centre and a
small window below this, and two 4-pane tilting casements at
1st floor; large part-sunk lean-to dairy with corrugated sheet
INTERIOR: front right room has axial beam and small C18
built-in cupboard with shouldered fielded panel; left front
room has fielded plank partition and 2 lateral beams with
small chamfer; rear right room has damaged court-cupboard
dated 1596 (probably ex situ); kitchen in rear left room has
remains of bread oven.
