5/133 Lime Kiln Farmhouse - - II

Farmhouse, C17 with later additions and alterations. Brick, rendered at front and sides; roof of slates and stone slates, hipped at the right hand end, with 3 ridge chimney stacks. Roughly L-shaped plan formed by the addition of a double-pile range of 3 bays facing west to the rear of the left half of an earlier 2-bay house which faces south and has a 2-storey gabled projection at its centre (probably the original porch). Two storeys; present front door at junction of the later building and the original house has a gabled brick porch, and is flanked on each floor by tall 20-paned casement windows; 2 similar but smaller windows on each floor at left hand end. The south front is now blind except for one small window on each floor in the left side wall of the former porch, and one larger window on each floor to the right of it; all these have glzing bars. Interior: unusual halved quarter round moulded beams on both floors of original house and in bay to rear of it; coved cupboard with painted spandrels; spiral newel attic staircase; and in front upper chamber a painted wooden overmantel depicting a landscape with castle and 5 figures in early C17 dress, flanked by pairs of slim columns coupled at the head by a scrolled cap of Ionic design. Two stones, lettered " C " and "1684", now incor- T C porated in garden wall (which is not include in the item) may be from the house.
