MALBOROUGH BOLBERRY SX 63 NE 7/39 Bolberry Farmhouse

G. V. II

House formerly farmhouse. C16 with C17 remodelling and C19 plus C20 additions. Rendered stone walls possibly incorporating some cob. Hipped thatch roof. Brick stack at left-hand end and one rear lateral stack. Plan: 3-room-and-through-passage plan, lower end to the left. Lower room is presently heated by stack in end wall but also had a rear lateral stack which has been taken down, but presumably pre-dated the end stack unless there were formerly 2 rooms at this end, which would be unusual. The hall was also heated by a rear lateral stack. A thick wall divides it from the inner room, but this does not rise into the roof space. In fact over the inner room is the earliest cruck truss which provides arguable evidence that the house was built as a hall house with central hearth and open to the roof from end to end since the truss is slightly darkened. The central hearth (if it existed) must soon have been superceded by a chimney, because the truss is only slightly darkened. During the C19 and C20 outshuts were built along the rear wall. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 5 window front. The 3 left-hand windows on the first floor are late C18/early C19 12-pane horizontal sliding sashes. To their right is a small C17 2-light ovolo-moulded wooden mullion window. Beyond it is an early C19 20-pane hornless sash in a half dormer. Tall C20 3-light casements below. C20 plank door to right of centre. Interior: chamfered wooden lintel to hall fireplace. Massive waney cruck truss over inner room with morticed apex, collar halved on, the timbers are darkened but not black. Other trusses are C18 A-frames.
