9/19 West Chilla Farmhouse -


Farmhouse. Early C17 possibly with earlier origins, altered and added to in C19. Plastered cob and rubble walls. Gable-ended corrugated asbestos roof. Brick stack at each gable-end and axial stone stack of small blocks with dripmoulds and dripcourse. Plan: 3-room-and-through-passage basic plan except that the higher end consists of a small heated parlour with dairy or service room behind it. The hall stack backs onto the passage and at the rear is a newel stair in projection. Adjoining this at the higher end a dairy lean-to was added in the C18. The lower room fireplace was inserted in the C19, it may originally have performed a non-domestic function. The plan appears not to have been altered since the C19. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front the right-hand half of which was a slightly lower roof-line. C19 small-paned 2 and 3-light casements apart from a circa early C19 24-pane horizontal sliding sash to left on ground floor. C20 part- glazed door to right of centre. C19 low pighouse projects as wing from right-hand end and there is a C19 lean-to against the left-hand end. At rear is rectangular stair projection to right of centre with lean-to to its right and pump-house built in front of it. Interior: hall has large open fireplace with chamfered wooden lintel which was diagonal cut stops and a chamfered granite jamb to the left. Inner room has smaller fireplace with chamfered unstopped wooden lintel. The small room behind has a C17 chamfered wooden doorframe of which the right-hand half has been removed. C18 or C19 roof trusses with straight principals and lapped pegged collars. This is an unspoilt example of a traditional Devon farmhouse little altered since tne C19.
