3/59 Christon Bank Farmhouse


House. Early C18, perhaps incorporating older fabric; extended later C18. Rendered except squared tooled stone on left return and rubble outshut; roof front slope mixed blue and green slates, Welsh slates to rear; C20 white brick stacks.

South elevation 2 storeys, 3 + 5 bays. Oldest part to right: Central renewed door; 12-pane sash windows except for two 4-pane sashes ground floor right. Left part also has 12-pane sashes. All windows with slightly-projecting sills. Banded end and 2 ridge stacks. On left return pent outbuilding with 2 boarded doors and 12-pane attic sash; right return shows small attic window. Rear outshut has 2 flush-panelled doors, one with 3-pane overlight, and several small-paned sashes; several openings have raised stone surrounds.

Interior: Fielded-panel doors throughout. East drawing room has early C18 panelled wall with 2-panel cupboard doors and fluted pilasters flanking late C18 Gothick fireplace. West drawing room has stone fireplace with architrave, swell frieze and mantel; dentil cornice. Old kitchen fireplace at west end of house has cambered timber lintel. Closed-string dogleg stair in outshut, probably re-assembled in late C18 or C19, has urn-on-vase balusters, ramped moulded handrail and square panelled newels. Simple C18 fireplaces in bedrooms. Extension has collared common-rafter roof with tenoned and pegged collars and carpenter's numbering; early C18 part has later common-rafter roof with halved and nailed collars.

Historical note: The east part of the house may have been built soon after Robert Christon purchased lands here in 1698; the western extension (which may incorporate an earlier single-storey range) and outshut were probably built after the Taylor family purchased the farm in 1759.
