LINKINHORNE SX 37 SW 7/2 Beneathwood Farmhouse 21.8.64 II

Farmhouse. Late C16 - early C17, with later alterations including an addition to the upper end of mid C19, and some C20 alterations. Slatestone rubble with granite dressings. Slate roof with ridge tiles, one hand-made crested ridge tile surviving, and gable ends; gable end stack to left with brick shaft, rear lateral hall stack and rear lateral stack to the inner room. Corrugated asbestos roof over the lower end. Plan: 3-room and through passage plan, with unheated lower end room to right, with stair tower to rear. Hall to left heated by rear lateral stack and inner room also heated by rear lateral stack. There is a stack in the axial position, heating the first floor chamber over the passage and hall. In the mid C19, an addition of 2-room plan was added to the higher end; the room to left is heated by gable end stack and the room to right by a rear lateral stack. Straight joint between the 2 builds. The inner room appears to have been rebuilt, but was probably an addition of the C17; the original house would have consisted of the hall and the lower end only. Exterior: The early house is of 2 storeys, an asymmetrical 3-window range, with the roof level lower over the lower end room to right. Ground floor has two 3-light chamfered granite casements with hood mould, to the hall and the inner room. 4- centred arched chamfered and step-stopped granite doorway to passage with plain door. At first floor there are 2 similar 3-light chamfered granite casements, some with C19 3-pane lights surviving. C20 window above the passage doorway. The lower end has 3- light chamfered granite casement at ground floor, and C19 2-light casement with L hinges at first floor. To the left of the straight joint, the C19 addition has two 2-light casements at ground floor and first floor, central C20 porch with pitched roof. Right gable end has single storey rubble lean-to and casement at first floor. Left end has C19 external stack. At the rear, the lower end room has a 2-light C18 casement with H hinges and timber lintel; C20 flue. Stair tower with pitched roof also to rear of the lower end, with 4-pane C20 light. The rear passage door is enclosed by a small C20 single storey lean-to. Inside, there is a doorway similar to the front doorway, with 4-centred arch, chamfered; studded door with strap hinges of C17. Blocked window above with timber lintel. There are 2 rear lateral stacks behind the hall, both external with a straight joint between. At first floor the inner room has a C19 16-pane sash. Straight joint to the C19 addition, with a 16- pane sash at first floor and external rear lateral stack to the room adjoining the inner room. Small pointed arched stair light with brick surround. Interior: The hall has rear lateral fireplace in granite, with flat chamfered lintel and jambs. There are 5 deep chamfered cross beams with step stops. The wall to the passage is a stud partition with a double thickness plank studded door, re-sited from the doorway into the lower end. The lower end room has a round-arched chamfered doorframe with studded door with strap hinges. The rear stair tower has a rebuilt C20 stair. At first floor, there is a blocked doorway which would have led from the hall chamber to the chamber over the inner room; the inner room has been replaced by the C19 addition. Roof over the hall has one truss remaining by the partition, with cambered and chamfered collar, threaded purlins and ridge purlin. There are halvings for dovetailed lap joints, collars missing.
