3/177 North Creaber Farmhouse - 28.1.86 GV II

Farmhouse. C17 thoroughly refurbished and enlarged in 1986. Granite stone rubble; granite stacks, with granite ashlar chimney shafts, one of them rebuilt in 1986; slate roof (formerly thatch). Plan: 2-room-and-through-passage plan house facing south-east. The right room has an end stack with the site of a newel stair alongside to rear. This was the parlour. The left room is the kitchen/hall and it has an axial stack backing onto the passage. Rear service rooms were added to rear in 1986. Main block is 2 storeys. Exterior: Irregular 3-window front of timber casements with glazing bars, all 1986 replacements. The doorway is roughly central. It contains an old solid oak frame and a plank door. The roof is gable-ended and steps down right of centre. Interior is largely the result of a thorough renovation in 1986 of a previously nearly derelict building. The only carpentry which was not replaced in 1986 is a soffit-chamfered half beam across the front of the kitchen/hall chimneybreast. Both fireplaces are built of granite ashlar. The right room, the parlour, fireplace is the latest in style with its curving pentan; it is probably late C17. The kitchen/hall fireplace has a hollow-chamfered surround and an inserted bread oven. North Creaber Farmhouse with the nearby barn (q.v) and shippon (q.v) form an attractive group.
