7/223 Yarde Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Late C16 or C17, with early C19 and C20 additions and alterations.
Partly of plastered cob, and partly of unrendered brick, all on stone footings, and
all with thatched roof, gabled end to wing, the main range left hand end brought down
as a catslide over C20 extension. Formerly a 3-room, through-passage plan, the lower
end wing rebuilt in brick in the early C19. Lower end originally heated by rear
lateral stack, the parlour heated by end stack, both of which have been dismantled;
hall heated by rear external lateral stack with brick shaft, and set-offs. An all-
brick external end stack to wing. 2-storeys.
Front: C20 fenestration to original cob part (which is supported by a single
buttress); the gable end of wing to right has no windows to this elevation, but the
C19 brickwork extends 1 bay along the main range, with one 12-pane hornless sash
window to each floor. Roof ridge rises steeply to join higher level of wing.
Rear: stair turret to right of external stack; C19 and C20 casement windows with
sash windows to early C19 extension. Right-hand side of early C19 cross-wing
presents a symmetrical early C19 brick front 2-window range with modillion cornice,
all tripartite sash windows, unhorned, 4:12:4 panes with some crown glass.
Interior: chamfered lintels to hall and parlour fireplaces; screens could survive
between hall and parlour, and hall and through-passage. Parlour chamber with simple-
moulded plaster cornice; 3 planked doors to upper rooms with chamfered door-frames
with moulded bases, these look C16. 1 jointed cruck visible in upper room; the roof
is all clean, trusses halved, crossed and pegged at apex. Collars halved and pegged.
A 3-light chamfered window survives in the roof space but now abuts the parlour end
stack; its original function is not clear.
