KINGS NYMPTON KINGS NYMPTON SS 61 NE 3/158 Bidgoods GV II Farmhouse circa 1700. Painted rendered stone rubble and cob. Hipped slate roof.

Axial rendered stack.

Plan: unusually a 3-room and lobby entry plan with massive stack heating parlour to right and hall/kitchen to left, with narrow unheated inner room to left lower end.

Staircase to rear of stack with access from hall/kitchen. Parlour is divided axially towards the rear to create a small rear room. 2-storey outshut, probably c19 and leanto at left end.

Exterior: 2 storeys. 3-window range. All C20 3-light casements. Early C20 gabled porch with ogee style lintel.

Interior. Largely unspoilt. Good original moulded plaster cornice to parlour.

Scratch-moulded joists to hall/kitchen with thin chamfered bressumer and fireplace lintel. C19 integral cupboard in front wall. Early joinery intact throughout, including a full compliment of doors to the upper storey chambers of raised and fielded 2- and 3-panelled doors and one 3-plank door. The chamber over the hall has an integral hanging cupboard beside the stack in plank and muntin style with scratch- moulded planks; this is a rare survival. Pegged A-frame roof trusses with lapped pegged collars, the rafters replaced in C20.
