2/62 Roscadden Farmhouse - II

Farmhouse. Circa mid C17 parlour wing of C16 house rebuilt in the C20. Painted rubble and cobwalls, slate sills, wooden lintels. Asbestos slate roof with eaves heightened C20 and external stone rubble stack at left-hand gable end. L-shaped plan of parlour, left, with best chamber or solar over, stair well right, vestibule between parlour and stair and wide shallow room behind stair, probably originally a buttery, and C20 wing at right angles to front right on the site of the original C16 house. Built into bank at rear. 2 storeys. 1-window north north east front of parlour, left, and projecting gable end of C20 wing on right with C20 quadrant porch in the angle between. Original C17 oak mullioned windows survive to ground and first floor; 2-lights of originally 4- light window to ground floor with C20 glazed door replacing the right-hand lights and 3-lights window to solar over. The ground floor window has ogee internal mouldings and the first floor window has bowtell moulding. C20 casements with glazing bars. C20 double top-glazed door to porch. Interior The parlour wing is fairly complete and little altered since the C17. Deep ovolo-moulded cross beams with ogee tongue stops in the parlour; wide dog-leg stair with circa late C18 balustrade with rectangular balusters and a fine plaster barrel ceiling in the chamber over the parlour with moulded cornices, the feet of the trusses exposed under an inner eaves soffit and with the lower cornice carried around them so that they resemble brackets. Original roof structure over not inspected Roscadden has some documentation: a John Roscadden is mentioned in 1594 and there are 2 references, 1663 and 1679 in the Buller papers. (Information supplied by occupier). Rare surviving C17 wooden windows, and particularly rare plaster ceiling, but both these features and the ovolo-moulded beams would have been common in the C17.
