3/2 Cholditch Farmhouse - II Farmhouse. Late C17 with C18 and C20 alterations. Rendered cob on stone rubble footings, whitewashed to the front, corrugated asbestos roof over thatch, hipped at the left end, gabled at the right end. Stone axial stack, right end stack with a stone chimney shaft and brick dressing. C17 3 room and through passage plan with the hall stack backing on to the passage. The hall probably also served as a kitchen as the lower end does not appear to have been heated. The inner room may also have been unheated originally with the present gable end stack added in the circa late C19. A 2-storey projecting bay under a catslide was added to the hall, probably in the C18 when the higher end roof trusses appear to have been replaced, and the house was refenestrated. In the C20 the rear of the through passage was screened off and the lower end converted to a kitchen heated from a fireplace at the rear of the hall stack. The hall has a stair along the rear wall behind a timber partition, the lower end has a servants' stair to the front. 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front with a 2-storey bay to the right of the axial stack and a plank and batten front door to the through passage to the left of the axial stack. Fenestration of 2-light casements with glazing bars, the 2 right-hand windows may be C18, the first floor window in the bay is an C18 sliding sash, there is a similar sash to the rear elevation. Other windows on the front elevation are C19 and C20 replacements. Interior C20 grate to the hall, the timber lintel of an earlier fireplace is visible in a cupboard and ealier jambs may exist behind the plaster. The hall has a C19 china cupboard and an unusual squint into the bay. C18 pegged roof trusses between the stack, C20 roof trusses over the lower end. A relatively unspoiled farmhouse typical of the region. Shown as Cholch on OS map.
