GV II

Farmhouse, mid C18 to before 1770 with rear extensions late C19. Partly remodelled and restored in 1970s. Rubblestone patched stucco to gable front. Low pitch slate roof with gable ends and slightly lower lean-to roofs to flanking wings. Large brick central stack on ridge. Plan much altered. 2 storeys and attic storey with 2 storey flanking wings and basement throughout. Symmetrical south gable front with centre part of 3 storeys set slightly forward with flat bands at first floor cill and attic cill, largely masked by creeper. Lower wings continuing gable with break in roof levels. Ground floor with two 12-pane sashes without horns flanked by inserted C20 part glazed door in wing on left under C20 gabled porch. Similar barred wood sash with horns in right-hand wing under slightly arched head and exposed sash box. First floor with two 12 pane sashes flanked by 2 circular lights opening about a centre mullion with angled glazing bars. Refenestrated following earlier pattern although glazing bars altered. In attic two 6 pane wood sashes, one with a Crown bulls-eye pane. Circa mid C19 barge boards in gable end. On left-hand side, set back, mid C19 extension under catslide roof with later C20 extension. On right-hand side ground floor extended with 2 late C20 bay windows. Above three 4 pane sashes. Rear originally had circular windows, now removed. Interior staircase with heavy moulded rail and square newels with moulded cap. Turned balusters on square bases. Imperial stair to attic. Ground floor with 4 panel doors with wide heavy moulded doorcases. Fireplaces largely replaced. Late C18 King post truss roof. Barton Farm for Boconnoc Estate. Illustration of "Plan of Barton of Collon" belonging to Thomas Pitt, 1770 by James Blackmore in possession of owners. Illustrates front elevation of Collon Farmhouse with close similarities to existing elevation with following exceptions; pediment in place of barge board in gable end, the roundels are not quite level and there is a further window above the door on the left. The amateur Thomas Pitt, 1st Baron Camelford (1737 - 93 q.v. Boconnoc House, Boconnoc parish) seems more likely to have had a hand in this farmhouse than his father, another Thomas (d.1761). Colvin says he patronised Soane and designed for Walpole. The farmbuildings in the courtyard marked on the map have been partly rebuilt. The north and south walls of a kitchen garden remain to the west of the house. H Colvin, Biographical Dictionary of British Architects
