19/02/93 Prowses Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Probably C16. Rendered cob with stone rubble
plinth; water reed thatched roof; stone end stacks including
external stack to left. 2-room plan plus lean-to possible
extension on the right and former probable cider loft at rear
left rebuilt 1993-4 as domestic wing.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys plus lean-to on the right; 3-window range
with doorway approximately central to the 2-storey part. Old
planked door; 1993-4 casement windows.
INTERIOR: has original smoke-blackened purlins and some
rafters above an otherwise probable C18 roof structure.
Room on the left has large partly-blocked C17 fireplace and a
broad-chamfered oak crossbeam.
Room right of entrance hall has a hollow-chamfered oak
crossbeam and probable re-used head of C16 former muntin and
plank screen as end beam on the right; C17 fireplace with
later oven and re-used chamfered oak beam (with blocked joist
sockets) as replacement lintel.
Prowses Farmhouse has the superficial character and appearance
of an C18 house, but as with many Devon houses, on closer
examination there is evidence for a much older fabric.
