SD40NE ELMERS GREEN LANE 783-1/1/14 (West side (off)) 25/06/73 Smith's Farmhouse (Formerly Listed as: SKELMERSDALE AND HOLLAND ELMERS GREEN LANE Smith's Farmhouse, and shippons to north)


Farmhouse, now house. Probably late C17 possibly incorporating earlier features, in 2 builds, enlarged, altered, recently renovated, with additions. Sandstone rubble, both coursed and random; composition tile roofs. Formerly T-plan, with a one-bay one-and-a-half depth main range on an east-west axis (probably replacing an earlier and narrower main range) and a 2-bay cross-wing at the east end; plus C20 additions to the north. Two low storeys, 1:1 windows to the south. The main range, of thin rubble masonry, has a doorway close to the junction with the wing and one altered window on each floor, and its roof is hipped down to the wing. The wing, of large random rubble on a high plinth of thin coursed rubble, has a C20 three-light casement on each floor of the south gable (replacing sliding sashes); its right-hand return side has a 4-light mullioned window on each floor of the front bay and 3-light casements to the rear bay, with simple hoodmoulds over both ground floor windows. The main range has no chimney but the wing has a corner chimney. INTERIOR: the wing has the conventional features of a subordinate range: beam of former lateral partition which divided a small service room at the north end from a parlour to south, and cross-corner fireplace in the parlour and 2 large chamfered lateral beams with cyma stops. Windows have cambered wooden lintels with similar decoration, and junction wall to main range has 2 similar lintels. At 1st floor this junction wall has 2 blocked mullioned windows close to outer corners; and, between and above these, remains of roof truss with unusual plank and stud infilling (these features suggesting that wing was added to formerly narrower hall range). The main range contains timber-framed longitudinal partition with blocked Tudor-arched doorway. Forms a group with the barn approx 15m north-east (qv).
