4/70 Gavelacre Farmhouse


Large house. Mainly early C18, but of earlier origin, with late C19 and late
C20 renovations and extensions. Brick, with a tile roof. Near-symmetrical
front (north-west) and rear, with recessed centres brought forward at the
later stage: 2 storeys and attic, 2.2.2 windows. There are hipped roofs
to each side, and a parapet to the centre. Walls in English bond, slightly-
cambered openings, plinth. Sashes in exposed frames. The doorway is an
arch formed by a plain architrave, with C20 panelled reveals; the set-back
entrance (in line with the old front wall) having an architrave and 6-panelled
(2-top-glazed with patterned bars) door. The rear is similar, the centre being
a gable with a stepped stack above a hipped-roofed verandah on 5 (turned)
baluster poles, with a ½-glazed door. There are late C20 extensions at each
end, in similar style. Within, there is panelling of 3 periods: C16
linen-fold in the stair-well, C17 in one room and early C18 in another. The
C17 dog-leg staircase has slatted balusters. One fireplace has C17 pilasters
