BRAUNTON NORTH STREET (west side) Braunton Gordons Farmhouse and attached Barns


House, formerly farmhouse, probably C16, much altered in C20 and extended into part of right-angled cob barn at upper end, the remainder forming a garage. Further rubble barn with loft over at rear north side. Rendered stone rubble and cob. Slate roof with gable ends. 2-storeys in 3 cell plan, originally through-passage but screen removed and stairs inserted. Large lateral stack on front with offsets, whitewashed cob and rubble with pantiled roof, brick stacks at gable ends. C20 refenestration and most openings altered. Square-headed through-passage C20 door with roll-moulded chamfered and stopped surround. Pantiled canopy. Interior: Shouldered doorframe at upper end of hall. Chamfered timber lintel to fireplace. Large beam just below fireplace is roughly chamfered towards lower end and rounded off on hall side, probably evidence of former jetty but roof timbers entirely replaced in C20. Rubble barn to rear has wooden loft door above 'stable' plank door. Ventilation slits towards each end. First floor plank door at left gable end with timber lintel. Cob barn has pantiled roof. The farmhouse is built gable-end to the street and with Town Farm (q.v.) is an example of a centrally- placed former village farmhouse in relation to Braunton's historic cellular town plan, a nucleated settlement which still has its open field system, the West Field.
