SX 69 SE SOUTH TAWTON

4/146 Gooseford Farmhouse including garden walls, adjoining to south (West Gooseford on OS) GV II

Farmhouse. C17, probably earlier in parts, modernised in mid C19. Plastered granite stone rubble, maybe some cob; stone rubble stacks, one with C17 granite ashlar chimneyshaft, others replaced with plastered brick; slate roof, originally thatch. Plan and development: L-shaped house. The main block faces south and has a 3-room- and-through-passage plan. Small unheated dairy at the left (west) end. Hall has large axial stack backing onto the passage. Service end room has a gable-end stack. The house probably began as some form of open hall house but the roof was rebuilt in the C17 and therefore most of the evidence of its early development has been removed. In fact the main block is largely the result of an apparently superficial mid C19 refurbishment. At this time the passage rear doorway was blocked by the present main stair, the kitchen (used from the mid C17 as the kitchen) was upgraded to dining room, the rear parlour was downgraded to the kitchen and the former service end room was refurbished as a parlour. 2 storeys. Exterior: nearly symmetrical 3-window front of C19 casements with glazing bars, the ground floor right one replaced by a C20 French window; Central doorway contains a part-glazed C19 6-panel door (another similar in rear block). Roof is gable-ended to right and hipped to left. Interior: in the main block only the hall shows any detail earlier than the mid C19. It has a large granite ashlar fireplace with chamfered surround, probably mid or late C16, with secondary side- oven. The crossbeam is mid C17; soffit-chamfered with scroll stops. The former parlour in the rear wing is mid C17. Its crossbeam is ovolo-moulded with scroll stops and most of its original scratch-moulded joists. The roof was not inspected but the bases of straight principals show which are probably 17 A-frame trusses. A strip of front garden is enclosed by a mid C19 low stone rubble wall which includes a stone mounting block on the outside.
