Details

BLISLAND SX 17 SW 9/40 West Penstroda and garden walls to front -

GV II

House and garden walls to front. Circa early C17, possibly with earlier origins. Granite ashlar and stone rubble with large granite quoins. Slate roof with gable ends. Moulded granite parapet coping on right hand gable end with moulded granite circa C17 end stack. Projecting stone rubble end stack with brick shaft on left hand gable end. Plan: Original plan uncertain and the house may have once been larger. The ground slopes down to the left. 2 room and through passage plan with entrance porch near centre. The interior was not accessible at time of survey (1986) although the owner described a possibly C17 panelled screen on the right hand (higher) side of the passage and panelling possibly reused around the stair which has probably been inserted on the left hand side of the passage. Outshot containing dairy and back kitchen added across rear in circa C18. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical possibly 2 or 3 window front, the left hand side of the house covered in a vigorous growth of foliage. Single storey circa C17 granite porch with slate roof and chamfered segmental arch, possibly with diagonal stops. Probably 3-light mullion window with hood mould to right and 16-pane sash above. Left hand side not fully visible. Interior: not accessible at time of survey. Granite rubble garden wall to front with chamfered granite coping, ramped on the left hand side wall. An interior inspection is likely to reveal several interesting features to this particularly unaltered and fine house which was probably built for a family of at least Yeoman status.
