NORTH TAWTON SS 60 SE 6/63 Crooke Farmhouse 22.2.67 II Farmhouse. C17 with C19 addition and alterations. Rendered cob walls. Gable ended thatch and slate roof. 2 gable end brick stacks, rendered stack axial to rear wing and at gable end of rear wing. Plan: complex evolution of plan, the original form of which is not entirely clear and it is possible that it is a heavy C17 remodelling of a medieval house. The main C17 part is L-shaped with 2 rooms in the part projecting to the left and 1 room and a passage in the right-hand part. To the rear at the centre is a 1-room heated wing of uncertain date but likely to be pre-C18. To the left of this is a C19 range at right angles to it, probably added as a kitchen. The whole of the interior was also remodelled in the C19 and a staircase inserted in the front wing. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window L-shaped front with wing projecting from left-hand end. Windows are 4-light late C18 casements with square section mullions and leaded panes. 2 C20 glazed doors on ground floor of right-hand part. Part glazed C20 door in inner corner of left-hand range. At rear of right-hand part thatched wing projects with 1 storey C20 addition in front, to the rear of which is slate-roofed C19 range at right angles. Interior: apart from 1 chamfered ceiling beam with notched stops in original left- hand part no original features are exposed on the ground floor. Several C18 fielded panel doors survive, however. Early C19 staircase with column newels and stick balusters. Arch at bottom with reeded pilasters. Roof: the 2 C17 front ranges have original roof trusses whose collars are halved on with dovetail joints.
