5/91 Hill End Farmhouse
House, unoccupied. Mid-late C17 with early-mid C18 addition to right.
Large well-coursed gritstone to front, hammer=dressed to rear, stone
slate roofs. 2 storeys. Earliest house probably of 2-cells with
gable-entry originally with added stair-hall and large parlour in C18;
double-depth throughout. The fenestration, other than 2 inserted
C19 cottage doorways into the window of the 1st cell and the 2nd cell,
remains intact. All are double-chamfered mullioned windows with
continuous hoodmould over ground floor windows of 1st 2 cells. 1st
cell has 6-light window, doorway with monolithic jambs taken out of
2 lights, with 4-light window above. 2nd cell has inserted doorway
with tie-stone jambs to left of 6-light housebody window, 2-light
fire-window; two 3-light windows to lst-floor. Coped gable to left
with ridge stack. C18 addition taller and has 9-light window with
2 king mullions to each floor. Over ground-floor window is dripmould
interrupted by slightly later Classical doorcase at junction of the
2 builds: it has pilasters, entablature with triglyphs and a segmental
pediment. Above is a large sash window with raised architrave and
sill on consoles. Gable stacks.
Rear: L-shaped with projecting bay to left; this has quoins, 6-light
window with king mullion to each floor and doorway to right with
composite jambs and Tudor-arched lintel. Set back is tall stairwindow
with arched lintel, keystone and impost-blocks. Earlier house has
2 bays of windows: 6-light with 4-light above and 5-light with 4-light
above. Set between is projecting gabled cellar partly submerged into
hillside; above is arched light with sunken spandrels. Lateral stack
at junction of the 2 builds.
Interior: Housebody has stop-chamfered joists with scarf-joints,
evidence of former bressumer. Number of service rooms to rear.
C18 addition has entrance hall with simple plaster ceiling with a
moulded cornice and elliptical raised moulding. The former external
door (into housebody) has an added moulded surround to match the other
doors. The new parlour has stop-chamfered beams and joists. The main
stair lies behind the entrance hall: C19 open-well probably replacing
an earlier one in this position for it rises to a landing out of which
open doors with stone surrounds, chamfered and arched. Beneath the
stair are steps down to a vaulted cellar.
A fine example of a prosperous Yeoman's house with its C18 classical
