3/16 Pogrean Farmhouse - II

Farmhouse. C18, possibly remodelled from a C17 house. Painted shale rubble and some cob, partly rendered to front, granite and slate sills, wooden lintels. Scantle slate roofs on 3 levels with brick chimneys over gable ends of taller main part, lower pitched roof adjoining left-hand gable end with external stone 3-stage breast surmounted by square brick chimney to far left gable end. Further gable end to wing projecting at front on right with chimney removed probably C20. Double depth plan with 2 principal front rooms and central entrance passage with stairs at rear; and slightly shallower rear service rooms, pantry or dairy to left and back kitchen with large hearth to right. The partition between the kitchen and front room is cranked to give more space at the hearth end. At the left end a 1-room plan wing, with gable end stack which may be of C17 origin. At front of right-hand end, a mid C19 1-room plan wing at right angles, containing a second staircase. 2 storeys. Overall 4-window south west front of 1-window front set back on left; main 3- window front and projecting gable end of circa mid C19 wing on right. Main front may have been nearly symmetrical and 4-pane sash to ground floor right of doorway is probably a recut opening to left of now blocked original opening, (probably carried out when wing added and reception room subdivided). Ground floor left and first floor windows are the original C18 12-pane horizontal sliding sashes. Central doorway is within C20 glazed porch. Chamfered and stopped wooden lintels over first floor left and middle windows and reused C17 ovolo-moulded lintel over first floor right-hand window. Front of single cell part on left has irregularly disposed wide window openings to ground and first floor and smaller square window to ground floor right; all with 2-light casements. Rear has slightly irregularly disposed window openings with mid-floor central stair window. Blocked openings at left of stair window and below. Old 3-light casement with 6 panes per light at ground floor left and 2-light casement to first floor over with horizontal wooden glazing bars with some leaded panes between. Other windows are later replacements. Chamfered and stopped wooden lintels over original openings. Wide 4-panel door within C20 porch to single cell part, right. Wing has tall round-headed stair window with hornless sash to south-east wall and to ground floor left of south-east gable end of main house is 2-light 12-pane horizontal sliding sash. Fixed light to first floor over has horizontal wooden glazing bars with leaded panes between. Interior retains much original C18 carpentry and joinery including open-well stair with rectangular balusters and panelled doors, some with original HL hinges and original latches. Parts of ground floor, first floor and roof not inspected but said to be similar period to features seen. Hardly altered since the C19, this house retains many C18 features and particularly interesting are the windows with leaded panes, a feature shared with some other houses of the Lizard Peninsula.
