WEST ALVINGTON SX 74 SW 5/195 Oldaway Farmhouse

II Farmhouse. C17 with later C17 or early C18 addition, further remodelled and extended in late C18. Slatestone rubble walls, plastered at the front. Gable ended slate roof. Stone rubble stack at left gable end and the end of the right- hand rear wing, very short stack at right gable end. Plan: 2-room and probably through-passage plan, with roughly equal-sized rooms, each heated by an end stack. Probably kitchen wing added behind right-hand room in late C17 or early C18. A further remodelling of the house took place in the late C18 when it was refronted and possibly at this stage the other unheated rear wing was built behind the left-hand room. Exterior 2 storeys. Regular 3-window front of late C18 small-paned sashes apart from later C20 casement on ground floor to right. Central C20 leanto porch. Interior: inaccessible at time of survey but may contain features of both main periods and apparently has not been much modernised since earlier C20.
