6/212 Moore Farmhouse -

II

Farmhouse. Circa 1680s possibly a remodelling of an earlier building with C19 and C20 alterations. Coursed dressed stone; slate roof, gabled at ends; 3 rear lateral stacks with brick shafts. Plan: The late C17 plan was a single depth 3 room wide arrangement with a left of centre entrance into a stair hall, 2 principal rooms to the right and probaby a kitchen to the left. The asymmetry of the plan combined with fashionable late C17 detail suggests a remodelling of an earlier house. At one time, probably in the C19, the house was divided into 2 dwellings and a second stair has been introduced between the 2 right hand roms with a blocked doorway in front of it on the front: the stair projects into the centre room. The late C17 stair has been remodelled on the ground floor altering the plan to a lobby entrance with a cross passage which gives access to the left hand room. Exterior: 2 storeys and attic. Asymmetrical 4 window front with regular fenestration. C20 brick porch to left of centre, blocked doorway between 2 right hand windows. 2-light chamfered timber mullioned windows withhigh transoms and stone voussoirs presumably late C17, with C20 glazing of small pane casements, the window above the porch smaller but of similar design. The right return has 1 attic and 1 first floor simmlar window; C20 2-leaf glazed door with glazing bars on ground floor of right return. Interior: Fine decorated plaster ceiling of the late C17 to ground floor right with geometrical design mouldings and corner sprays of leaves and cherries built up on wire or leather. 1 corner is a late C20 repair. The fireplace has a plain timber lintel and semi-circular hearth back, the original chimney piece is missing. The centre room had a similarly shaped hearth back but has been remodelled. Original chimneypiece missing. Fine late C17 dog-leg stair with turned balusters, a moulded handrail and ball finials to the first floor and attic, which has a similar stair gallery balustrade. The ground floor to first floor flight has been remodelled and the balustrade no longer exists. A good late C17 doorframe survives on the first floor leading off the stair landing with a keyblock motif in moulding on the lintel and jambs and a 2-panel door.
