6/205 Ninnis Farmhouse and adjoining gate piers, mounting block and front garden walls II

Farmhouse, stile, gate piers, mounting block and front garden walls. Probably C17, remodelled in the C18 and C19. Painted rubble walls, partly stuccoed to front, slate sills, granite lintels. Steep wheat-reed thatched roof sweeping slightly lower to rear. Brick chimneys over the gable ends, the left hand chimney over a stone rubble stack. Overall T-shaped plan: 3 wide rooms along the front and a later room plan service wing at right angles behind the middle. Possibly originally a 3 room with through passage plan but the front is now a 2 room plan house, left, and 1-room plan cottage right. The house has 2 large rooms with probably the original cross passage between. The left hand room, probably a kitchen, is heated by a large gable stack, the right hand room of the house appears to be unheated, possibly this is the C17 hall position originally probably heated by a rear lateral stack, later removed or rendered obsolete (circa late C18) when the rear wing was built, the hall then becoming a central unheated service room. The cottage, right, is probably the original inner room or parlour, converted to a self-contained house circa early C19 (alterations to the front wall prove change of use). 2 storeys. Overall slightly irregular 5 window east front, the position of the first floor windows probably a C18 remodelling, possibly the eaves heightened slightly at the same time. Now a stuccoed 3 window front house, left, and 2 window painted rubble fronted cottage, right. The ground floor openings are irregularly disposed and do not align with the more regularly spaced first floor windows. The ground floor openings (from the left) are wide window, doorway (probably original), window, narrow window and doorway with small adjoining window. The original parlour window was between the ground floor openings of the present cottage. Circa late C19 or C20 6 pane horned sashes and C20 doors. There is a large C20 conservatory porch in front of the main doorway. Reused in the rear wing is what appears to be a piece of dressed granite with a chamfer. Adjoining the left hand side of the house is a dressed granite grid stile with a granite ashlar wall adjoining the house (contd). Farmyard gateway adjoins to the left of the stile with square-on-plan round-headed granite monolithic gate piers. The left hand pier is integral with a dressed granite and granite rubble mounting block, now with ramp at rear, possibly was used as a milk stand for churns in the C20. The front garden walls are slurried rubble. 2 gateways with square-on-plan dressed granite monolithic gate piers. C19 wrought iron gate to left hand gateway. One of only 2 houses still with thatched roofs in this parish and this house has an interesting plan development.
