5/11 Duvale Farmhouse - II

Farmhouse. Circa early C17 with a mid C19 wing. Stone rubble with slate roof, gabled at right end, hipped at left end of main range, gabled at end of wing; 2 rear lateral stacks to main range (one C17, one C20), end stacks and axial stack to wing, all with brick shafts. Plan: L plan. The main range, facing south is the remains of a large 3 room and through passage plan house, the hall to the right, the lower end under the same roof span as the west-facing wing. The inner room has been truncated. When the wing was added to the front of the lower end in the C19 the house was turned round with an entrance on the west of the wing and the older house probably reduced to service rooms. Single-storey lean-to and outbuilding adjoins left end of wing (i.e. rear of old lower end room). Lean-to at right end of main range on site of former inner room. Exterior: Asymmetrical 3 window south elevation with a gabled porch at the extreme left into the former passage. The hall window, in the centre is probably the original C17 embrasure, splayed internally but with a 4-light C19 window 8 panes per light, the right hand window with C20 glazing. 2 first floor windows with C19 casements, 8 panes per light ; 4-light to the left, 3-light to the right. The return of the wing has 1-2-light C19 first floor window, similar ground floor window, both at the right end, but is otherwise blind except for a C20 casement on the first floor at the left. The west side of the wing is a conventional symmetrical 3-bay arrangement with panelled door, rectangular fanlight, porch on posts and timber sash windows with glazing bars. 1 first floor and 1 ground floor C20 casement at the left end (the lower end of the C17 range). Interior: High quality C17 features survive. The hall is unusually large with moulded crossbeams, a plank and muntin screen with moulded head beam, chamfered stopped muntins and blocked ogival doorway. Hall fireplace partly rebuilt and reduced in size with moulded Beerstone jambs and ovolo-moulded stopped lintel. The lower end room fireplace has the remains of a cambered lintel and hearth seats. On the first floor at the right gable end a partly concealed plank and muntin screen with moulded head beam. Roof: Pegged C17 tie-beam trusses, mortised at the apex with later collars. Stone fragments of ecclesiastical origin are incorporated into the walling of the single-storey rear left outbuilding : a volcanic stone pinnacle and sections of stone decorated with blind quatrefoils. A late C16 date and initials may be an antiquarian invention. An evidently high quality C17 house. Duvale was the site of a Domesday Manor held by Walson and appears as Denvall in a 1302 list of fees.
