SS 91 NW STOODLEIGH CARSCOMBE HILL

9/168 Carscombe Farmhouse -

II

Farmhouse. Early to mid C17 origins, re-roofed and extended in the C18. Substantial C20 alterations. Whitewashed rendered cob and stone rubble; thatched roof, half- hipped at right end and at front end of crosswing, hipped at rear of crosswing; front lateral stack, rear left corner stack to main block, stack at front end of crosswing. Plan: Single depth 2 room plan main range with a crosswing at the left end, C20 rear left lean-to. The main range may have been a 2 or part of a 3 room and through passage plan, the right hand room heated from the lateral stack, the lift hand room a circa mid C17 parlour heated from the rear left corner stack. It is possible that the 2 rooms were separated by a through passage (former doorway on front, opposed rear door) but the evidence is scanty. The crosswing is probably an C18 addition and was formerly in use as a poultry house, now used as a kitchen and service rooms. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window front, the eaves thatch eyebrowed over the first floor windows. Semi-circular bread oven to stack to right of centre; fenestration of C19 and C20 timber casements with glazing bars, window to left of stack was formerly a doorway. The entrance is now into the wing which has 1 ground floor and 1 first floor C20 timber casement. Interior: Very altered. The partition or partitions between the 2 principal rooms has been removed. Open fireplace to lateral stack with chamfered timber lintel, chamfered crossbeam. The left hand room has a possibly re-sited ovolo-moulded axial beam and a section of good C17 ovolo-moulded plank and muntin screen has been re- sited in the crosswing. Roof: Trusses over the main range are late C17/early C18 with cranked collars halved and pegged on to the principals.
