1/136 Allison Farmhouse


Farmhouse including former barn. Mid or late C17, refurbished in the mid C19. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings; stone rubble stacks topped with C19 and C20 brick; thatch roof. Plan and development: long block built across a gentle hillslope facing east-north- east, say east. The house is at the left (south) end. It has a 2-room plan with central entrance lobby and stair. The left room is the kitchen with a projecting gable-end stack and the parlour to right has an axial stack backing onto the stair. The right end section includes workshop and storerooms with bed chambers. Originally there was a 1-room plan cottage at the left end with a threshing barn alongside with full height opposing central doorways onto the threshing floor. The house was refurbished in the mid C19 and enlarged by encroaching into the barn to provide the parlour. Afterwards the rest of the barn was used as a ciderhouse. In the C20 the house was enlarged by taking over the former hayloft for bed chambers and thereafter the remaining ground floor space was used as workshop and stores. 2 storeys with outshot to rear of former kitchen. Exterior: irregular 3:1:2-window front of C20 casements with glazing bars. The projecting bay is the filling of the barn door in front of the projecting midstrey walls. To left it is an almost symmetrical arrangement around the main front doorway; now containing a part-glazed panelled door behind a C20 path with monopitch roof. Roof is gable-ended. The outshot to rear was originally open- fronted. Interior has plain carpentry detail. Roof was not inspected although the bases of straight principals showed. Allison is a historic settlement and yet it seems likely that the old farmhouse was on a different site. Source: Devon SMR.
