Bay Ness Old Farmhouse

Farmhouse now used for storage. Probably 3rd quarter of C17 with C18 and later
additions. Roughly-tooled coursed sandstone, of large size in old part; with
plinth. Pantiled roofs (except for some modern concrete tiles on wing) with
stone ridge, copings and kneelers; brisk stacks, one rendered. L-plan formed by
projecting right wing. Farmhouse faces west into farmyard and is partly built
into hillside behind. 1-storey, with attic at right, 3bays, the right bay
partly hidden by wing. Between 2 left bays the through-passage entrance is a
stable door in widened opening under chamfered lintel with false voussoirs. A
C20 lean-to, using old materials, projects from centre bay and holds boarded
door with small window to left. In left bay a 3-light chamfered stone-mullioned
window with cill and lintel and internal splay. Similar window in second bay
concealed by lean-to. Very high pitched roof with C20 raking dormer at right
and rendered right end stack. C18 wing, added in 2 phases, has fixed light at
junction with old house, blocked door and modern window on inner return; small
cellar window below, (ridge stack and modern dormer). Coal/boiler house added
at end. Right return shows modern casements, one inserted in narrow-chamfered
gable-end doorway. Blocked 2-light mullioned window to rear. Interior: the 2
left bays have been converted for barn use, open to the roof, perhaps when the
wing was added. Very long, curved principal rafters rest on ties and are linked
by pegged collar. Spurs support common rafters which rest on outer edge of
walls; there is no wall plate. Right bay, now the dairy, has a ceiling of big
chamfered beam and wide chamfered joists. The C18 parlour has its original
beams and fireplace; a further room was added a little later. That part
converted to barn seems not to have been heated, and is now separated by a brick
