Tree Farm
- II
Two cottages, now farmhouse. Late C18 or early C19. Rendered rubble, brick
stacks, slate roof; attached end unit with clay tile. Probably built as two
'handed' cottages, a small, lower unit added at right end and carried part-way
round back; main building has a gable entry to the left end, and back slope of
roof sweeps down over wide centre section including staircases. Two storeys,
2+2 windows, all original 16-pane sashes in exposed boxes, and some early glass;
centred to each pair of windows a 6-pane flush door, that to left under flat
hood to moulded edge on shaped wooden brackets, and to right under a propped
pent slate hood. Both set on 3 steps to height of slight plinth. Small modil-
lion eaves cornice, gable stacks, and large centre ridge stack; further small
brick stack, centre eaves at back. At left end a lean-to outbuilding sweeps
round corner to ventilating plank door, and plank door in gable of main buil-
ding; at right end a lower 2-storey unit with two 2-light casements at each
level, 2 with glazing bars, and central 6-panel flush door. Hipped end with
gable stack. Back has various 2-light glazing bar casements, including one each
end to landing level. Interior not inspected, but likely to be little modified;
ground windows have original panelled shutters. The building holds an important
location on a right-angle bend entering the village from the west, and is a rare
example in Aveton of an unaltered vernacular structure.
