3/45 Hoppers Gardens
Tenement farmhouse. Probably early C16 origins, remodelled and probably extended in late C16/early C17, with C19 and C20 alterations, mostly stone rubble and cob, clad heavily in ivy. Slate roof, hipped at left end, gable end to right. 2 axial rendered stacks with tapered caps, and rendered lateral brick stack to rear centre. Complex and interesting plan form. The left hand side of the house (used in conjunction with poultry business at time of survey) is possibly the original dwelling; conforming to the 3-room and through passage plan with the left-hand stack backing onto the through passage and heating a small hall. To the right of the through-passage is a room known as a dairy but now a small parlour, with the rear lateral brick-stack being a late C19 or early C20 introduction. The unheated inner room, at a slightly lower level to the hall, may have been a parlour with a small winder staircase to the rear left hand corner giving access to the chamber over. To the right of the dairy is an additional lobby entrance with facing staircase, a hall-kitchen to right heated by the right hand axial stack, with an additional small back kitchen and possibly smoking chamber in the short bay at the right hand end. 2 storeys. 5-window range, mainly C19 2-light casements, except that at right end which is 3 lights, all 6 panes per light except that to centre which is 2 panes per light. Plank door to through-passage doorway, flanked by a 2-light casement to hall, 6 panes per light and a 4-paned sash to dairy. Plank door inserted into inner room at left end. Plank door to lobby entry with 3-light casement 6 panes per light to right. The rear through-passage doorway has a C17 chamfered surround, and is flanked by outshuts with corrugated iron roofs. C20 2-storey extension at right rear end. Interior: through-passage, hall and inner room have remained unaltered in C20 with a fine probably early C16 virtually semi-circular headed-chamfered door surround, between hall and inner room, with one of the pintles intact. A C19 mantle shelf covers the original chamfered lintel to hall fireplace. Timber winder staircase to inner room which has a roughly chamfered ceiling beam. Hollow step-stopped chamfered bressumer above hall-through-passage partition. Blocked doorway from through-passage to former dairy which has matchboarded dado panelling. Hall/kitchen at right end has a partially boxed in chamfered ceiling beam and fireplace lintel covered by mantleshelf. Infilled creamery niche to left of lobby entry. Replacement of entire roof structure in C20 unfortunately obscures the whole development of the house, but a smoke-blackened timber removed at left end suggests this was originally an open hall house, the higher floor level over the right hand hall/kitchen suggesting this end may have been a late C16 or early Cl7 addition, but nevertheless an interesting early example of a probably 2-unit house.
