10/267 Studdys Farmhouse


House, formerly a farmhouse. Circa early to mid C17, heavily restored in
the late C20. Painted slate rubble. Dry slate roof with gabled ends and
asymmetrical gable end to the 2 storey front porch. Black glazed ridge
tiles. Rendered stacks projecting gable and stack at lower left hand end,
projecting rear lateral hall stack with set offs and tapered shaft.
Plan: 3-room and through passage plan the lower end to the left (south
west) heated from a gable end stack, the hall has a rear lateral stack and
the inner room to the right has a loft above with access from an external
stair on the gable end. At the front of the passage there is a large 2-
storey porch with an integral stair turret to the right rising from the
hall. At the rear of the lower end a shallow 2-storey unheated wing raised
in the late C20 with a gable. Probably in the late C19 the through passage
was widened by moving the lower side partition to create an entrance all
with a C19 staircase at the back. The C20 alterations included the
rebuilding of an outshut behind the hall stack and extending the first
floor accommodation into the loft at the higher right hand end.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window range. Various small window
openings with slate cills and large ground floor windows with new wooden
lintels. All C20 and 3-light casement. Very large 2-storey porch to the
left of centre with an asymmetrical gable and cambered brick arch doorway
with a C20 2-light casement over the slate weathering in the gable above.
the inner doorway has a wooden lintel and what is probably a C19 plank door
with wrought iron hinges. The corner at the higher right hand end is
rounded. External stone steps to the loft doorway in the higher right hand
gable end.
Rear Elevation: A shallow wing to the right has been raised by the addition
of a gable and a late C20 outshut has been built in the angle to the left
enclosing the hall's lateral stack. Asymmetrical fenestration of late C20
Interior: The hall has a chamfered cross-beam with hollow step and bar
stops. The hall/fireplace has replaced lintel. There is a stone newel
stair in the integral turret beside the park. The through passage has been
widened by the moving of the lower side partition to create an entrance
hall which contains a circa late C19 staircase at the back. The lintel of
the lower end fireplace has been replaced. The wall between the lower end
room and the shallow rear wing has been removed.
The roof structure has been entirely replaced in the lat C20 except for the
roof over in the loft over the inner room which is probably a late C19
