5/53 Stack House -


House. Circa mid C17 or earlier, remodelling of circa 1700, eaves raised 1938. Colourwashed rendered cob on stone rubble footings, asbestos slate roof gabled at ends, end stacks and axial stacks sited to the front of the ridge. A 3 room and through passage plan house, the hall stack backing on to the passage, the lower end room probably a kitchen, a heated parlour at the higher end. In circa 1700 a rear right projection was added for a dog-leg stair, this may originally have been gabled but in 1938 was brought under the same roof as the main range. Much of the internal joinery dates from 1700. The rear left lean-to may have been added as a service room to the kitchen in the C18. 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 5-window front with a chamfered cambered stone doorway into the through passage to the left. Most of the windows are 2- and 3-light C20 casements with glazing bars, the hall window to the right of the doorway is a circa late C18/early C19 3-light casement, 8 panes per light and the first floor 2-light casement above may be coeval. Ground floor window right is a tripartite sash, 6 over 6 panes. Interior The through passage plan survives intact, the passage has a slated floor and 2 chamfered 1/2 beams, stops may be concealed behind the wall plaster. The C20 grate to the hall may conceal earlier features. The house has a good set of circa 1700 2-panel doors, some with HL hinges, a coeval 6-panel door leads from the hall to the circa 1700 stair which has a ramped handrail and turned balusters. The hall window-seat with a panelled back survives, the inner room has a moulded plaster cornice. The remains of a granite mullioned window exists in the garden. The internal joinery is a particularly attractive feature of the house.
