PETROCKSTOWE SS 50 NW 8/38 Ash Barton - - II Farmhouse. Early C17 or possibly earlier, but later modernisation has left very few early features visible. C19 addition. Plastered rubble and cob walls. Asbestos slate roof gabled to right end and half-hipped to left. 2 brick stacks - 1 axial offset from the ridge and 1 at right gable-end. Plan: 3-room-and-through-passage plan with lower end to the right. Hall stack backs onto the passage, lower room has gable-end fireplace and inner room is unheated. Large C19 rear wing of 2-room width - kitchen to right, dairy and service rooms to the left. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front of 3-light casements - early C20 on 1st floor and C19 on ground floor and 1st floor to right. Late C20 glazed door to passage to right of centre. C19 or early C20 plank and glazed door to left. At rear are large double gabled rear wings. Interior: exhibits very few early features apart from 1 chamfered beam and an C18 door. The house has however been little altered this century and is very likely to preserve more early features which are concealed. Its early plan form survives and it preserves a traditional facade.
