10/106 West End Farmhouse
26/11/51
- II
Farmhouse. c.1700, extended late C18/early C19. Limestone ashlar and coursed
rubble with some wooden lintels; old plain-tile roof with rebuilt brick stacks.
3-unit plan with end outshut, extended to L plan. 2 storeys plus attic.
Symmetrical 5-window ashlar front, with rusticated quoins, plinth and storey
band, breaks forward in the middle 3 bays, below a tall parapetted gable
containing an oculus; the projecting kneelers return as a stone cornice over the
wide flanking bays. Central doorway, with panelled door, has a wide plain
architrave with double-stepped keyblock below a flat canopy on shaped brackets.
The window above is blind. All windows are of 2 lights and have ovolo-moulded
surrounds, retaining central mullions at first floor. End gables contain similar
attic windows. Rubble outshut to right is roughly contemporary. Rear has a large
stone lateral stack with many offsets, and has stop-chamfered lintels. Rear
wing, returning on right has been shortened. Interior: winder stair at first
floor; some plank doors and a wooden latch; butt-purlin roof with heavy rafters.
Most roof timbers and some window mouldings show signs of being re-used
materials.
