LAND RAKE WITH SX 36 SE ST ERNEY Lantallack Farmhouse 3/5 II Farmhouse, now house. Probably early to mid C17, with later C17 additions of dairy and stair tower, re-oriented and extended in late C18, with C19 and C20 alterations and additions. Slatestone rubble, front rendered, partly slate-hung and partly painted. Slate roof with crested ridge tiles, hipped at right end and with gable end to left and to rear wing, front rooms heated by rear lateral stacks, rear gable end stack to rear wing. Plan: originally a 3-room plan, with room to end left heated by gable end stack, 2 rooms to right heated by axial stack; it is not clear whether there was originally a passage, possibly between the end room to left and the 2 rooms to right. In the later C17, an unheated dairy of 1-room plan was added to the front of the end room to right, and a stair tower was added in the angle to the main range. In the late C18, the house was re-orientated, so that the right side became the front; the end right room was incorporated as the principal front left room in the new range, and the house was extended with a central entrance hall and rear stair hall, with parlour to front right. The former axial stack became a rear lateral stack for the front room to left, and the front room to right was heated by a rear lateral stack. The original central room was paritioned to form a passage between the dairy and the kitchen in the original left end room (now taking the position of a rear kitchen wing) and a small rear parlour Via formed, heated from the original axial stack. Probably also at this time, an addition was built around the stair tower, for a salting room, adjacent to the dairy. Some alterations of C19 including re-roofing of the front range, and a C20 addition to the right side of the kitchen. Exterior: 2 storeys, symmetrical 3-bay front to right, with 1 bay (dairy) to left, with modillion cornice across whole front. The 3 bays to the right have central 6- panelled door with overlight with diamond glazing, plain pilasters and pediment. To left, C19 8-pane sash with sidelights, to right C18 12-pane sash with sidelights. First floor 12-pane sash with sidelights and central 16-pane sash. To left, the dairy has 16-pane sash at ground and first floor. At the left side, the gable end wall of the diary has ground floor 2-light C19 casement with segmental head; straight joint to left to the salt room, which has a slurried slate roof, and 4-pane light to left side. At upper level, the stair tower has a single light with C20 glazing. To left, ground floor has two 2-light casements with flat heads, to left with a slate dripstone, to right with brick segmental head. Slate string course between the windows at lintel level. The right side of the late C18 building is slate-hung at upper level. Rear of this is also slate-hung, external stack with brick shaft. The late C18 stair tower projects, with pitched roof, also slate-hung, partly in asbestos slate, with small store room underneath with door, 4-pane sash at first floor. The right side of the rear wing is in painted rubble, with C19 4-pane sash and 2-light casement at ground floor, two C20 windows at first floor. Attached to right, single storey C20 addition with door to side and 2 windows in gable end. The rear gable end of the wing has stepped external stack with curved oven at base and remains of slate string course above oven. Interior: The front entrance hall has dado panelling and a segmental arch to rear to the stair well; dog-leg stair with scrolled string, moulded handrail and stick balusters. Both front rooms have 6-panelled doors in moulded architraves. Front right room has cornice with vases, beading, egg and dart and acanthus leaves; panelled shutters to windows. Stair tower has newel stair. Small inner parlour has dado panelling. Dairy has slate floor, slate shelves around the walls. Salting room has trough and hooks in the ceiling. Kitchen has slate floor. The window in the inner parlour may be the site of the original door. Roof: 4 bays remain of the roof over the kitchen; the trusses remain under a later roof. The principal rafters are halved and pegged, with collars pegged to the face of the principals, trenches remaining for upper purlins; probably of the C18 phase of alteration.
