SS 90 SW THORVERTON SILVER STREET, Thorverton 8/157 Court Barton - II Farmhouse. Circa late C18, probably a remodelling of an earlier house, with late C19 additions.
Main range colourwashed and rendered cob on stone rubble footings ; asbestos slate roof, formerly thatched, with sprocketted eaves; rear lateral stack, end stacks to main range, all with brick shafts. Rear right wing red brick on local volcanic rubble footings, red brick lean-to adjoins rear wing.
Plan and Development. Present plan is a single depth main range, 3 rooms wide with a rear centre wing and adjoining lean-to. The main range arrangement with an entrance to left of centre into a passage and a lateral stack heating the middle room suggests a C17 core to the fabric but most of the interior joinery is late C18 and early C19, including the stair in the passage. The service wing and lean-to are probably a late C19 refashioning and extension providing 2 adjoining heated rooms at the rear.
Exterior 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4 window front with an arched plank door to left of centre into the passage with glazed spandrels with round lights. C19 and C20 windows; 16-pane sash to left of door, 2 tripartite sashes with glazing bars and segmental heads to right of door. 4 first floor 3-light casements, 10 panes per light.
Interior C18 joinery in main range with doors with fielded panels; C20 grates, that to the lateral stack said to conceal an earlier open fireplace. Stick baluster stair. Roofspace not inspected but said to have x apex pegged trusses, probably C18.
