BOYTON NORTH BEER SX 39 SW 5/18 North Beer Farmhouse on west side of settlement at North Beer - II

Farmhouse. Probably late C16 or early C17, possibly with earlier origins. Rendered stone rubble and cob. Rag slate roof with gable ends. Projecting stone rubble and cob end stack on left and brick axial stack near centre. Brick shaft to axial stack on rear slope. Plan: Original plan uncertain. Possibly a 3-room and through or cross passage plan with entrance to right of centre, hall on higher left hand side heated by axial stack backing onto passage and inner room beyond on left heated by end stack. It is uncertain whether the lower end on right was unheated. Shippon added on right probably in C18. Alternatively, the house may have had a 2-room and passage plan which now comprises the left hand side of the present house, and which was extended with a third room on right in later C17 and shippon beyond in C18. Outshut extension added to rear of left hand room containing dairy, probably in C18 and the outshut to rear of lower end is circa later C18. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front with shippon on right. To the left a 3-light window and C20 door with 1-light casement near centre. C19 door to right of centre, probably the original entrance and C20 window and plank door to right. First floor has 3 probably C19 2-light casements. Interior: Fireplaces blocked and the ceiling beams are not visible. C19 or early C20 stair inserted in central room. Roof structure over higher end on left comprises 3 A-frame trusses with morticed apices and collars dovetailed with curved notches and lap-jointed onto face of principals. The principals are clean although the rafters and ridge are blackened but are roughly cut. Above the passage and lower end the roof structure is probably C18. The eaves were raised in the late C18 or early C19 and there is a secondary roof structure above the earlier timbers.
