6/26 Wolfgar

II

Farmhouse, now House. C16 origins, extended and remodelled in C17 and early C18. Plastered cob on rubble footings; stone stacks topped with C19 brick; thatched roof. Long 2 storey building facing south. originally a 3-room-and-through- passage plan with inner room to east and secondary single room extension to service end. Gable-end stacks including C20 stack to inner room (on half-hipped right end). Axial hall stack backing onto passage and axial stack to lower end of service room (original left end). Irregular 5-window front of 2 and 3 light timber casements; some C19 with original glass panes. Door has C20 gabled porch but secondary door to kitchen now blocked by small fixed pane window near left end. Internal features mainly C17 and C18. Hall has oak plank-and-muntin screen with moulded headbeam and chamfered posts with scroll stops at upper end; a granite and Drewsteignton stone fireplace with chamfered oak lintel and step stops at lower end; and floored by chamfered beam with step stops. Service room was apparently remodelled in late C17 when kitchen extension added beyond: its fireplace has plain oak lintel, granite sides and curving brick pentan. The plaster on the chimney breast above has a crude finger-inscribed heart containing the initials TS and is said to have been associated with a destroyed late C17 date. The same initials appear on hall screen dated 1751. (The Silliphant family owned the house in C17 and C18). Roof was replaced in late C17 - early C18 and contemporary turned balusters are reused in C20 stairs.
