Farmhouse associated with a planned farmstead. Mid C19 (newspaper cutting of 1855

floor and late C20 PVC French windows in original openings to ground floor.
Original porch to left of centre is of granite with pillars at the front and
pilasters at the rear which have moulded capitals, moulded cornice above. Probably
original panelled door which has had the top panels replaced by glass. The rear
elevation is very unaltered with 4 windows asymmetrically placed which are C19 small
paned 2- and 3-light casements. Original 6-panel door to right of centre.
Interior: The kitchen has an open fireplace with roughly dressed square granite
lintel and jambs. Surprisingly plain staircase which has open string, wreathed
handrail and stick balusters which also take the place of newels. The right-hand
principal room has 2 original arched recesses which have moulded pilasters and flank
the chimney breast. The original chimneypieces have been removed or the fireplaces
blocked.
This is the farmhouse to a planned mid C19 farmstead (q.v.) situated immediately to
its rear.
