TIVERTON

SS91NW LURLEY
848-1/1/90 Fulford Farmhouse

II

Farmhouse. C17. Render on rubble; steep concrete tile roof;
C17 rubble rear lateral stack to rear left of centre and C17
rubble axial stack right of centre, brick end stack on left.
PLAN: long 4-room plan with original hall left of centre.
Parlour is presumed to be at far left, based on evidence of
remains of large window to rear wall, but later in the C17
appears to have become the kitchen, and the large fireplace
was later fitted with an oven.
There is, however, the problem of the function of the other
heated room right of the hall, which has perhaps equal claim
to have had the function of a parlour.
The other room, now reduced to a single-storey building, far
right of the house, has no fireplace but possibly this was
removed when a wide doorway was cut into the end.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys; long 5-window range with C20 windows in
openings that had been adapted for sashes. There are 2
doorways, both with gabled porches, towards left and right,
and there is a buttress right of the left-hand porch. To front
of single-storey part at far right is a C17 chamfered oak
doorway with rare moulded planked and iron-studded door. Left
of the doorway is a C17 or early C18 3-light window with
central iron casement.
At left-hand end is an external chimney breast with a
quadrant-plan oven projection on its right. Original rear wall
(now within outshut rear of kitchen) has 2-light remains of
original chamfered mullioned window with probable king mullion
on its right. Right of window, and cut through former window
position is a later C17 chamfered oak doorway containing a
another rare moulded planked and iron-studded oak door.
INTERIOR: retains many C17 features of interest including:
floor structures with chamfered and tongue stopped beams, all
rooms with crossbeams except for room right of hall, which has
a central axial beam. There are 3 fireplaces: kitchen
fireplace to left-hand room; volcanic stone lateral hall
fireplace (reduced in width when fitted with oven) and
complete parlour fireplace with pyramid stops, right of the
hall. Roof structure has tie-beam trusses and is presumed to
be C18.
The architecturally modest exterior of this large farmhouse
belies its considerable internal interest and completeness.
