SOUTH MILTON SX 74 SW 5/112 Lower Sutton Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Early C17 or earlier, extended and altered probably in later C17 and C19. Slatestone rubble walls rendered at the front. Hipped slate roof, gabled to rear wings. 2 brick lateral stacks at the front, and one at the left-hand end. Rendered rubble axial stack to lower rear wing and brick stack to rear leanto. Plan: basically a 3-room-and-through-passage plan with lower end to the right. Lower room and hall both heated by fireplace on front wall. Fireplace on end wall of inner room. 2 parallel rear wings behind hall and inner room. That behind the hall is C17, built as a kitchen with a smoking chamber (now blocked) behind the stack. The date and function of the higher wing remain uncertain without a closer inspection. Behind the passage and lower end is a shallow 2 storey leanto incorporating a staircase of C19 date. The house was modernised in the early C20 and this has concealed most features where inspection was possible internally. Exterior: 2 storeys. Long asymmetrical 5-window front mainly of various forms of C20 2 and 3-light casements, apart from a C19 one to the right on 1st floor and one early C20 6-pane sash to left of centre. The right-hand end of the house projects slightly. At the centre is a wide leanto open-fronted C19 porch with a 4 panel door behind. Outbuilding leanto against left-hand end of house with steps up to dcor. Rear elevation has 2 gabled wings at right-hand end. Rear passage doorway in leanto, has apparently reused C17 ovolo moulded wooden doorframe. Interior: not fully accessible but one bolection moulded 2-panel early C18 door visible in passage. Rooms either side have blocked fireplaces and boxed-in beams. Early C19 staircase in rear leanto.
