3/4 Collytown Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Probably C17 with C18 addition, modernised in C20. Rendered rubble
walls. Gable ended slate roof which has decorative ridge tiles. 3 rendered rubble
stacks: one axial, one lateral stack at rear of left-hand side, one lateral stack at
rear of parallel block.
Appears originally to have been 2-room-and-through-passage plan with a rear lateral
stack to smaller left-hand room possibly the kitchen and axial stack backing onto
passage to right-hand room possibly the parlour. A parallel heated block was added
at the rear of the right hand room probably in the C18, for service purposes.
Modernised in circa early C20 when original features are likely to have been
concealed, passage was blocked and staircase inserted.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window front of C20 3 light casements with small panes,
ground floor right hand window has 4 lights. C20 plank door to right of centre
under doorhood supported on posts. Rear parallel block extends partly to the right.
Small outbuilding attached to the front of the house at right angles towards the
right hand end.
Interior: Right hand room has chamfered cross beams with bar and hollow step stops.
Modern grates in both principal rooms may conceal original open fireplaces.
Despite later alterations this house preserves a relatively traditional exterior and
is likely to conceal more early features internally.
