CHERITON FITZPAINE SS 80 NE 7/2 East Forde Farmhouse - GV II

Farmhouse. Late C17-early C18, possibly earlier core. Plastered cob on rubble footings; rubble stacks, 1 topped with C19 brick; thatched roof. Plan comprises 2 heated rooms and 2 entrance lobbies. Faces south-east. Large lateral stack projecting from front and left (south-west) gable end stack. 2 storeys. Irregular 3-window front comprising late C19-early C20 casements, all with glazing bars. There is a 4-panel door left of the lateral stack and a plank door at right end with a bee bole alongside. The lateral stack has its original rubble chimney shaft. Roof is hipped to right. Inside the right hand room fireplace is blocked but its massive size is indicated in a cupboard. It is volcanic ashlar and includes an ash-pit on right side. Another blocked volcanic ashlar fireplace in left room. Both rooms have chamfered beams with runout stops. The roofspace is inaccessible but bases of principals indicate A-frame trusses. The layout suggests the possibility of a C16 3- room-and-through-passage house adapted to present layout in late C17-early C18.
