HUNSTERSON C.P. (Off) PEWIT LANE SJ 64 NE 4/45 Brownmoss Farmhouse. 12.1.57

- II

Farmhouse. C16 or C17 with C18, C19 and C20 additions and alterations. Timber framed with brick infill and brick with a thatched roof covered with corrugated metal. T-shaped plan formed of the C16 or C17 range as cross-stoke to which an C18 or early C19 downstroke has been added as well as a mid/late C19 extension lengthening the cross-stroke at left. Entrance front: projecting gabled wing to the right being the right hand end of the cross-stroke. This is rendered and scored in imitation of ashlar with a large C20 3-light window to the ground floor and smaller 3-light casement to the first floor. Some timber framing shows where the render has fallen off. The eaves are encased in corrugated metal. To the left is a recessed wing forming the down-stroke of the T having Flemish-bond brickwork with blue headers. In the re-entrant angle is a C19 lean-to porch. The right hand side is largely obscured by a C19 lean-to outshut save at the right where C19 brick walling contains a Cl7 nailed plank door. The mid/late C19 addition which appears here at right consists of a single-storey linking block which connects to the two-storey two-bay block. Interior: Both ground floor rooms have chamfered and stopped ceiling beams with similarly treated minor cross-beams. Ingle-nook fireplace to parlour now blocked and containing a C19 marble fire surround. Staircase of 3 flights apparently removed from original setting, with square newel posts with moulded caps. Moulded balustrade and turned balusters. The first floor has C17 wide oak floorboards and both floors have C17 plank doors. Double wind bracing (above and below the purlins) .
