8/78 Hollis Farmhouse
2 dwellings, formerly a single farmhouse. Early C19, but retaining some C17 work.
Roughcast cob on stone plinth; hipped slate roof with lead rolls to hips and ridge.
Central staircase plan with principal rooms to either side of the entrance hall, and
2 rear service wings, 1 of which is largely C17 and all that remains of the earlier
house. Probably quite early on in the C19 the house was divided into 2 dwellings,
with a second entrance added to the right-hand side which gives access to a
stairhall inserted into the rear of one of the principal rooms. End stacks heat
principal rooms. 2 storeys.
Exterior Front: symmetrical 3 window range; first floor with central round-headed
horned sash window, 9 panes above, 8 below, flanked by 16 pane hornless sash
Ground floor: central porch with moulded canopy on simple posts, panelled reveals
and soffit to round headed doorway, panelled door with semi-circular fanlight.
Horned sash windows to either side, 12 panes above, 8 below. Overhanging eaves.
Irregular fenestration to side elevations, that to left hand side entirely C20.
Interior. Some early features survive in one of the rear wings, namely a chamfered
ceiling beam with run-out stops, a lintel to a former end fireplace and a re-used
ovolo-moulded stone jamb.
