5/24 Bowden Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C17, mostly rebuilt after a fire circa 1880. The older part is
plastered cob on stone rubble footings, the C19 build is plastered stone rubble with
brick dressings; stone rubble stacks topped with C19 brick; thatch roof.
Plan: T-shaped building. The main block faces south. It is entirely C19. It has
a 3-room plan with 2 axial stacks and the entrance hall with the main stair is
between the centre and left rooms. 1-room plan rear wing projecting at right angles
left of centre. This is all that remains of the C17 farmhouse. It has a gable-end
stack. 2 storeys.
Exterior. Regular but not symmetrical 5-window front of C20 casements without
glazing bars. Front doorway is left of centre and contains a C19 4-panel door
behind a gabled and slate-roofed porch. Roof is hipped each end.
Interior not inspected but is said to include a good deal of C19 joinery and other
detail. A C17 soffit-chamfered axial beam was seen in the rear block.
This farmhouse is attractively sited in a valley overlooked by Castle Drogo (q.v.).
