SS 81 SE CRUWYS MORCHARD 2/69 Thorne Farmhouse - II Farmhouse. C17 origins, remodelled and extended in the mid C19. Roughcast, probably stone rubble, with a slate roof, gabled at the right end, hipped at the left end, rear wing gabled at end; right end stacks, axial stack, end stack to wing. The main range faces south and appears to be a 3 room and through passage arrangement of C17 origins, unusual for the region in that the axial hall stack is on the wall remote from the passage. A rear left wing at right angles to the inner (left end) room is probably a C19 addition. The main entrance of the house is now into the wing into a stair hall. 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window south front with regular fenestration and a doorway to right of centre into the former cross or through passage with a flat porch canopy. 16-pane sash windows with horns probably of a mid or late C19 date except small 2- light casement above front door. The wing, which faces the road has 3-light small pane timber casements and a front door to right of centre with a flat porch canopy. Interior not thoroughly inspected but the ground floor room right of the main range has a re-used C17 moulded half beam, a chamfered cross beam and a partly-blocked fireplace with a timber lintel. A stair has been inserted into the passage. A large handsome farmhouse which may have earlier features concealed behind modern plaster.
