2/81 Lower Verwill Farmhouse
Farmhouse, unoccupied at time of survey (January 1986). 1738 by datestone, with
early C19 alterations. Unrendered stone rubble, the facade finely dressed and
brought to courses. Slate roofs with gable end stone rubble stacks, that to left
with drip, and stone rubble stack with offsets and drip to rear service wing.
Integral L-shaped plan, with principal heated room to each side of entrance hall
containing staircase to main range and right angled kitchen wing to rear of right-
hand room. Dairy outshut to rear of main range and stair turret, added probably in
C19, to rear inner wall of rear service wing.
2 storeys. 3-window range. Symmetrical 12-paned horned sashes. Central 6 panelled
door. Service wing has 2-light casement, 8 panes per light over plank door to left
of a 2-light casement, 2 panes per light and a single 4-paned window with chamfered
timber lintels. Datestone at left gable end inscribed I Charley 1738.
Interior: entirely unspoilt early C19 interior fittings including 4 panelled doors
throughout, C19 chimneypieces to chambers and to the 2 principal rooms, that to left
with reeded surround, stopped at the corners with roundels. Integral cupboards with
panelled doors flank these 2 fireplaces. Panelled internal shutters to facade
windows. Chamfered unstopped cross ceiling beam to rear kitchen wing which has
timber lintel to fireplace containing bread oven with cast iron door. C18 moulded
plaster cornices to central chamber and to staircase landing ceiling.
This is a house of some distinction for the area in the quality of its construction
and for its completely unspoilt character.
