ST GILES SS 51 NE IN THE WOOD 8/203 Winscott Barton Farmhouse including 4.10.60 garden wall adjoining to south

GV II

Farmhouse. Weathervane is dated 1850 and the features of the house accord with such a date but there may be an earlier core. Local stone rubble walls, mostly plastered; brick stacks with plastered chimney shafts; slate roof, formerly thatch. Plan: F-plan house. The main block faces south. It has a 3-room plan with a cross passage containing the main stair right of centre. The 2 rooms to left (west) are parlours and an axial stack between contains back-to-back fireplaces. The large room to right of the passage is a dining room with an end stack. A kitchen block with projecting end stack projects to rear of the dining room and a dairy block projects to rear of the centre. Ostensibly this appears to be a single phase mid C19 farmhouse but parts may be older. 2 storeys. Exterior: Regular but not symmetrical 5-window front of C19 and C20 casements with glazing bars (similar windows to rear). Front doorway is right of centre behind an original (that is to say mid C19) slate-roofed gabled porch. It is built of stone rubble with red brick quoins and has a stone ashlar Tudor outer arch (alternate grey and cream-coloured blocks) with a hoodmould. Front doorway contains a C19 6-panel door. The roof is hipped each end and the ridge is surmounted by a timber bellcote with a wrought iron weather vane dated 1850. Interior: No carpentry is exposed. The joinery detail is mostly mid C19 and relatively plain; for instance, the main stair is a straight flight without a balustrade. Roof not inspected. From the right (eastern) end of the front a tall stone rubble projects forward along the side of the front garden and connects the farmhouse to the end of the barn (q.v.). It appears to contain some blocked features as if it were once part of a building. Winscott Barton Farmhouse is attractively situated amongst a very good group of traditional farmbuildings, the best of which are listed. It is on the site of an old mansion which was the home of Tristram Risdon between 1603-30. Source: Devon SMR.
