BROADWOODWIDGER SX 48 NW 8/29 Elmsleigh Farmhouse - II Farmhouse. Circa late C17 origins, remodelled in the C18. Colourwashed rendered cob on stone rubble footings, asbestos slate roof gabled at left end, half-hipped at right end, 2 rendered axial stacks. The original plan was probably a 3 room and passage house with the hall stack backing on to the passage and an unheated lower end.

An addition at the left end may originally have been used as a woodstore with an apple loft over. 2 storeys. 5-window front with regular fenestration and a symmetrical elevation between the stacks, the range slightly set back to the left of the left-hand stack. Central gabled porch with a round-headed outer doorway, a second entrance to the right under a slate canopy on timber brackets may represent the original passage doorway, the left-hand addition has a separate entrance on the front. Sash windows throughout, 20-pane sashes between the stacks with a 12-pane sash above the porch, first floor window left and ground floor window right 16-pane sashes, first floor window right paired 12-pane sashes. Interior Early features may be concealed behind the plaster. Roofspace not inspected.
