5/84 Dunthrop Farmhouse
Farmhouse, probably a manor house. Late C17, altered and extended. Coursed
squared limestone with ashlar dressings; Welsh-slate roof with ashlar stacks.
Small E-plan house with rear stair wing and later additions. 2 storeys plus
attic. Present entrance front, with chamfered plinth and moulded first-floor
string, is the former rear, and has the tall gabled stair wing in the centre
with a 2-light stone-mullioned transomed window at each floor. Of the former
symmetrical arrangement of tall single-light stone-transomed windows, the 3 at
first floor to left of the wing survive; elsewhere are blocked windows and
fragments, but there is a later larger window at each floor. Right end wall had
two 2-light transomed windows at each -flour with single-light windows in the
gable, but some of these are now blocked or altered. Original entrance front
retains the central 2-storey gabled porch projection, with a round-arched stone
doorway containing a later fanlight below a 2-light transomed window; also the
larger end projection to left, with single-light transomed windows; but the
single- and 2-light windows between them are blocked at first floor and covered
by an early lean-to extension below. Right wing is larger and has later windows,
except a small gable window, but may also be an early alteration. Steep-pitched
roof has gable parapets and 3 stacks with paired shafts. 2 C18/C19 single-storey
service ranges are attached to end of main range. Interior not inspected.
