Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

Good example of 18th century farmhouse with later dower wing, with unusual floor plan, and courtyard of early 19th century outbuildings.[1]

The house emulates the polite architecture of Georgian fashion but with a continuing local character. Shown on the Richmond Map of 1795.

The five-bay, two-storey house is constructed in granite. There is a slate roof with a pair of dressed granite chimney stacks and three early dormers with 12-pane sashes. The front door is of an early 19th century six-panel pattern, and a later Victorian Gothic gabled porch.

The original floor plan is unusual for its rear, gabled staircase wing extension, as houses of this period usually contain the staircase within the rectangular plan form. This is of particular interest as it shows the transition from the rectangular plan common throughout the 18th century to the deeper more spacious plans which evolved in the 19th century.

The interior of the house in 2004 retained its original layout and many early fittings including a very fine mahogany staircase.

The 1930s kitchen extension attached to the north-west corner of the house is of no interest. Integral to the site is a collection of early 19th century farm outbuildings forming a courtyard to the north of the house.
