Farmhouse. Mid C17; C19 service wing. Granite stone rubble laid to rough courses; granite stacks, the main one still with its original granite ashlar chimneyshaft with moulded coping; slate roof, formerly thatch. Plan and development: L-shaped house. The main block, facing south (backing on to the lane) is the mid C17 house. It has a 3-room plan. Unheated inner room at left (west) end was probably a dairy. The 2 main rooms have a large axial stack between them serving back-to-back fireplaces. The centre room was probably the hall, the right end room the kitchen. Front lobby entrance between these rooms. Probably C19 1-room plan service wing projecting forward at right angles in front of inner room end and it has an outer lateral stack. 2 storeys. Exterior: main block has not quite symmetrical 3-window front of C20 casements with glazing bars (2 more to the service wing). Front doorway now contains a C20 doorway in traditional style behind a C19 stone rubble porch with gabled slate roof. Roof of both wings are gable-ended. Interior: was not available for inspection at the time of this survey. However a mid C17 ovolo-moulded crossbeam and contemporary plank-and-muntin screen were seen in the hall. East Week is a straggling hamlet which contains several attractive listed buildings.
