SILVERTON SS 90 SE 7/210 Clysthayes Farmhouse - - II* Farmhouse. Early C16 with late C16 and C19 additions and alterations. Cob and stone mix, plastered, under gabled-end thatched roof. Formerly a 3-room, through-passage plan, the higher end to the right of the passage, with a lower-end rear wing. The house was originally open to the roof from end to end and stacks inserted probably in the late C16. Inner room and lower end each heated by external end stack; hall heated by external front lateral stack; end stack to wing; all with brick shafts, the external stacks with offsets. 2 storeys. Front: 5-window range; 2 and 3-light casement windows to ground floor, and a 1:3:1 light bay window under a leanto thatched roof which connects to the gabled thatched roof of the large stone porch to through-passage. Door surround with ovolo moulding, the door itself planked and studded. C19 and C20 casement windows to rear, with slate-roofed leanto, and C20 flat-roofed extension. Conservatory to left-hand (outer) face of rear wing with 3-light window above. Interior: passage with plank and muntin screen to either side, chamfered, carpenter's mitres and stopped, the hall-side screen with scroll stops, that to the lower-end with step stops. Cranked doorway to both lower end and hall, and another opposing front entrance. Lower-end room with unstopped cross beams, the fireplace with chamfered jambs, and a wooden lintel, chamfered with scroll stops. Hall with chamfered cross beam with scroll stops, the fireplace with stone jambs and wooden lintel all with continuous ovolo moulding. Late Elizabethan panelled screen between Hall and inner room, the designs to either side similar, but the detailing varied; geometric patterns to cornices; the early C16 plank and muntin screen that originally stood here has been removed to form a rear screen to the hall (although now divided from it by an internal partition inserted to provide a rear corridor). Hall chamber with plaster ceiling, probably contemporary with the Elizabethan screen, single-ribbed with very large central pendant. Roof: 4-jointed crucks, collars and apex morticed and pegged, purlins, trenched, smoke-blackened throughout, including some of the battening and wheat-reed thatch. Reference: the plaster ceiling is noted by French in Trans.Devonshire Association, 89 (1957), 138 and illustrated plate 11A.
