1/24 Summer House
Farmhouse. Probably C16 with earlier origins, altered in early C20.
Sandstone rubble and timber-frame with brick and plaster infill. Tile
and Welsh slate roofs with sandstone and brick stacks. Rectangular plan
aligned roughly north-east/south-west. Cellar, two storeys and attics.
North elevation has 1:2:1 windows, late C19 casements of two lights
arranged beneath three gables. Ground floor has small top vent mid-C20
to left-hand gable, a 3-light contemporary casement to centre gable, and
an early C20 window of six segmentally headed lights to right-hand gable.
Entry in ledged door to central gable. The two left gables have their
tops decorated with oak concave sided lozenges each brace of which has a
spur. The right-hand gable has matching patterns painted on brickwork.
Attached to left side is a small lean-to. On the right-hand return of
the right gable is a recessed lower range with its front masked by corrugated
iron lean-to and a sandstone and brick stack to its right gable. South
elevation has 1:3 early C20 timber-framed gables with roughcast infill.
Glazed off-centre porch, also early C20, contains ledged door with strap
hinges, possibly C17. Interior inaccessible at time of re-survey (November
1986). RCHM indicates that the Summer House incorporates a medieval hall
and notes C17 panelling and a fireplace inter alia. (BOE, p 65; RCHM, Vol
III, p 6 - 7).
