Farmhouse, now private house. Circa mid C17, partly remodelled in late C18 and extended in mid C19. Stone rubble with dressed granite quoins and arches to ground floor openings. Rag slate roof with gable ends and stone rubble gable end stacks. Plan: original plan altered and earlier arrangement uncertain. The house may have been of a 2 room and through passage plan, the larger hall kitchen on the left heated by an end stack and the smaller possibly unheated parlour on the right; in circa late C18 the house was then possibly extended to form a double depth plan although the evidence of straight joints on the gable ends is possibly tentative and the rear wall of the original range must have been replaced by a thinner partition wall which was remodelled in the mid to late C20. Alternatively the house may always have been of a double depth plan with hall kitchen on front left, parlour on front right and 2 small unheated service rooms to rear. In circa late C18 the front of the house was remodelled and the front wall possibly partly rebuilt. In circa mid C19 a further service range of 1 room plan was added to the rear right, with a kitchen fireplace with cloam oven heated by a rear lateral stack. 2 storeys, almost symmetrical 3 window front probably partly refaced in the late C18. Entrance to right of centre with early C20 part glazed door and open stone rubble porch with slate top. Dressed granite segmental arches with keystones to ground floor window openings; C19 tripartite sash on left and late C19 16-pane sash on right. First floor has three 16-pane early C19 hornless sashes. Interior : partitions removed between 2 front rooms. The right hand room has an unmoulded granite lintel to the fireplace and the left hand hall kitchen has chamfered ceiling beams with straight cut stops and a timber lintel to the large fireplace which is chamfered and has a hollow straight cut stop on the right; the left hand side has been truncated and the wall to left partly rebuilt. C19 stair to rear of right hand room with turned newel and stick balusters. Kitchen on rear right has an unmoulded timber lintel to the fireplace and cloam oven. The first floor has been removed. First floor of main range not inspected. The farmhouse is situated in the village of Helstone whilst the land attached to the farm was to the north and included much of the medieval deer park, the earth banks of which are still extant.
