4/34 Oldcastle Farmhouse



Farmhouse, now holiday farmhouse. Late C17 - early C18. Part timber-framed
on stone plinth over left-hand side cellar, stone end walls, brick left hand
gable, brick gable window heads and surrounds, brick quoins to end stacks, tiled
roof with brick verges; local type external stone chimney with off-sets and
detached shaft to centre of rear. 2 storeys and attic, 4 bays; contemporary
regularly placed cross casements in iron with lead cames to both floors; those
to the left being higher; entrance into second bay from the right, under gabled
hood supported by a pair of consoles decorated in acanthus leaves, through
a contemporary six-panelled door. Framing: 6 panels high from plinth to
eaves; in the front 2 right hand bays there is wall-framing only in the top
panel, the remainder being trompe-l'oeil framing over render. Interior: 4 flight,
contemporary dog-leg staircase with fat balusters; big wooden lintol to fireplace
inside external chimney. The left hand ground floor room has a much higher
ceiling than the rest indicating a possible extension at this end (but roof not
inspected), yet the artificial framing of the right hand side indicates re-
building there too, the unifying features being the similar end walls and
continuous panels below the eaves.
