5/265 Dislingbury Farmhouse

II

Farmhouse. Late C17, possibly earlier origins. Timber-framed on brick footings, clad with weatherboarding; brick stack and chimneyshaft; peg-tile roof.

Plan: Farmhouse faces south west. It has a 3-room-and-through-passage plan. Unheated former service room at the right (south east) end. It is separated from the hall by the passage and parlour at the left end. Axial stack between hall and parlour serves back-to-back fireplaces. Stairs rise from parlour between stack and front wall. Despite its plan-form which suggests medieval origins what was seen on the ground floor suggets it is wholly C17. Maybe the roof would provide evidence of earlier origins.

2 storeys with attics in the roofspace and lean-to outshots across the back.

Exterior: Regular but not symmetrical 3-window front of C20 casements with glazing bars. Small fourth ground floor window lighting the stairs left of centre. Front doorway is right of centre and contains a C20 door. Roof is half-hipped both ends.

Interior: Not available for inspection at the time of this survey but plain C17 carpentry detail was seen on the ground floor. Hall and parlour have plain chamfered axial beams and both fireplaces are brick with plain oak lintels.
