2/27 Glibes Farmhouse



Farmhouse. Probably C17 with alterations into C18. Dry stone or thin coursed rubble, stone slate and asbestos roofs. Two-cell house attached on its left side to barn (qv) and on its right side to stack, 2-cell service area and further cart shed and stable. One storey and attic, 2 windows. Ground floor has 2 C19 6-paned casements to left hand side and a late C19 12-paned sash to right of entrance; above each casement is an early C19 4-paned casement under a raking top dormer. Entrance through right side of planked c1900 porch and late C19 ledged door; second entrance through ledged C18 door into lobby adjacent to barn. To right hand side of house but attached is former wash house and brew house, cart shed and stable; the last has a small 2-light window and the first 2 each have an evenly spaced late C18 - early C19 ledged door. Interior: principal room has plank and muntin screen to left, bacon cratch attached to closely set joists above and to right a late C19 cast iron range. C19 straight stairs rise from the rear corridor of left cell which is defined by a post-and-rail partition. To the right of the hearth through chamfered doorway a front corridor leads past main entrance giving access successively to kitchen and dairy, the three spaces being separated by a longitudinal and a transverse plank and muntin screen. The corridor leads into the wash house and brew house which contain a C19 bread oven to rear left and a copper to rear right; in the right hand wall is a diamond-mullioned 4-light window overlooking the cart shed and side door to stable which contains 2 loose boxes. The rear upper floor of the kitchen and dairy part has in a half-dormer a diamond mullioned window and the roof trusses of the same area have iron straps on their A-frame trusses. The building and attachments form an exceptionally good example of an early farmhouse which has barely changed for over a century.
