7/23 Home Farmhouse
(formerly listed as
21.3.88 Home Farmhouse [former
Asterton Farmhouse])


Farmhouse. Probably C14 or C15, remodelled and extended c.1580-1620 with
later additions and alterations. Random uncoursed limestone rubble concealing
timber frame; slate roof, tall central axial ridge chimney with dripstones
and capping. Originally an open hall of 2½ bays, the house has been converted
into a baffle entry type c.1580; probably a little later it was extended
by single bays to the east and west, and the whole stone clad. 2 storeys;
irregular fenestration, 2 casements to first floor (one C19, one C20), 3
to ground (all C20); 2 entrances, one beneath stack, one to right, both with
C19 cambered brick heads. 2 exposed wall posts, a small staircase window
and a projecting bread oven to the rear. Interior Retains one true arch
braced cruck with considerable traces of smoke blackening; this has been
truncated by the massive late C16 stack (large beam to fireplace beneath);
also on the first floor the original west wall displays a Queen post truss,
probably dating to the re-building of the house c.1580, the same wall beneath
has square panelling (one with exposed wattle and daub infill) and evidence
in the joists above, which project to the west, for a former jetty. The
2 main rooms on the ground floor (formed from the 2½ bays of the original
house) have massive stop chamfered beams and heavy joists (c.1580-1600);
a simple straight flight oak staircase (C18 or C19) to the left of the fireplace
leads to first floor.
