7/30 Dog Pits Farmhouse and attached
- II

Farmhouse with attached barn under one roof, probably late C18,
recently renovated, now house. Coursed squared sandstone facade,
otherwise random rubble, stone slate roof with 3 chimneys on the ridge.
House is 3 bays and 2 storeys; single storey gabled porch at junction
of 2nd and 3rd bays (in line with 3rd chimney), and plain doorways also
in 1st and 3rd bays (the latter altered as a window); the 1st and 2nd bays
have on each floor a Venetian-style flush-mullioned window of 3 lights,
the centre light round-headed, and there is a similar window at 1st
floor of the 3rd bay, (with a long sill band) and another at ground
floor of the right return wall. (Other openings in side and rear walls,
mostly small rectangular, are original but of less interest). Two-bay
barn continued to left (vertical joint at the junction) has round-arched
wagon entrance to 2nd bay, simple doorway and window in 1st bay; left return
wall of house, visible inside barn, shows gable line of earlier and
smaller building. Two-storey lean-to stable at left side of barn.
