10/78 Home Farmhouse
Farmhouse, now divided. Late C18. Red brick with plain tile roof.
L-plan. 2 storeys and gable-lit attic over basement; 3 storeys at rear
of front range. Moulded eaves cornice. 2 brick stacks behind front
ridge and brick ridge stack to rear. 3 bays; boxed glazing bar sashes
with gauged-brick heads. Segmental-headed basement windows. Central
door with 6 raised and fielded panels (top 2 glazed), 2-part rectangular
overlight and flat hood on shaped brackets. Left-hand gable end
with segmental-headed attic glazing bar sash, 2first-floor blind windows
and ground-floor blind window to right. Segmental-headed blind attic
window in right-hand gable end with inserted 2-light casement. 2-storey
addition to right with integral brick end stack, first-floor segmental-
headed 2-light wooden casement and ground-floor segmental-headed 3-light
wooden casement. Interior not inspected. A map (still kept at Berwick)
made of Berwick House (q.v.) and its surroundings in 1760 by Thomas Ansell
shows a house on the site of Home Farmhouse, marked as "The Tennants House".
It appears to be of an early C18 date (Berwick House is dated 1731),so the
present building, assuming the accuracy of the map, must have replaced the
earlier one sometime after 1760. Shropshire Libraries map collection
(photocopy of Berwick map).
