ST DOMINICK SX 46 NW 4/199 Fursdon Farmhouse GV II Farmhouse, now 2 houses. Probably early to mid C17, with additions of later C17 and addition to rear of circa C19; alterations and division as 2 houses in C20. Painted slatestone rubble. Slate roof with ridge tiles and gable ends; rear lateral hall stack, axial stack to the upper end room and front lateral stack to the lower end. Partly rendered. Plan: Originally a 3-room and through passage plan. The lower end room is to left of the passage; this appears to have been rebuilt circa C19, with a front lateral stack. The hall is heated by a rear lateral stack, and circa later C17 had a hall bay built to the front. The inner room, to right, is heated by an axial stack backing on to the hall, and has a stair tower to rear; probably also in later C17, a small unheated addition was made to the front of the inner room, possibly originally as a front bay, but later used as a dairy. Circa C19, a 2-storey rear wing was added behind the passage. This is heated by a stack to the right side, and partly enclosed the rear lateral hall stack. The house has been divided so that the inner room to right forms one house, the rest of the house is the main house. Exterior: 2 storeys, asymmetrical 4-window range, with projecting hall bay to left of centre and bay to the front of the inner room to right. The lower end to left has door with glazed panel, 2-light casement above; front lateral stack. Wide gabled hall bay with 2-light casement at ground and first floor. To right, the inner room has a half-glazed door inserted, with single light and pitched hood on wooden pier; 2-light casement above. Gabled bay projecting to end right with 3-light casement at ground floor and 2-light casement at first floor. The left end is rendered, with 2-light casement at ground and first floor. Right end blind. At the rear, the 2-storey wing behind the passage is rendered, with 2-light casement at ground and first floor. Single storey corrugated iron lean-to set in the angle between the wing and the lower end. The rear of the upper end room has ground floor 3-light casement; projecting stair tower with single light and 4-pane light, pitched roof. Interior: Upper end room only inspected. Axial fireplace with granite jambs, chamfered and stopped. Lintel covered. The rear stair tower has a stone newel stair boxed in wood.
