2/176 Rollestone Farmhouse -


Farmhouse. Early C18 possibly a rebuilding of an earlier house some C20 alterations. Rendered, probably cob and stone rubble; asbestos slate roof (formerly thatched), half-hipped at ends; 3 rear lateral stacks, the rear right stack later than the other 2. Plan: An interesting late vernacular plan, presumably derived from the 3 room and through passage arrangement and still asymmetrical suggesting the possibility of remodelling of an earlier house. Single depth, 3 rooms wide with an entrance to left of centre into a through passage which includes the main stair; heated parlour to the left, large heated room to the right, presumably the farm kitchen but with no evidence of a bread oven, with a second stair adjacent to the stack, smaller room at the extreme right with C20 subdivisions. The first floor has an original axial passage and a stair to the attic which was evidently also used for accommodation The rear door of the through passage leads into a small enclosed courtyard of out buildings including a granary to the rear right: the house faces the farmbuildings in a yard to the east. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4 window front with regular fenestration. Front door to left of centre is a late C20 replacement; C20 door at extreme right into the right end of the house. 3-light casement windows except for a 2-light window over the porch: these all appear to be C18, some with bead-moulded mullions, some with mullions hollow-chamfered to the interior and glazed with small pane timber casements. Interior: Largely unaltered. the left-hand room has an C18 chimney-piece with modest carved decoration and a C19 grate, the room to right of centre has a massive open fireplace with ashlar jambs and iron lintel with a brick arch: a stair with a straight flight with a winder rises adjacent to the stack. The principal stair has an extremely attractive splat version of a twisted baluster balustrade. Several C18 doors on the first floor. Roof: Collar rafter roof trusses pegged at the apex with collars nailed on to the principal rafters.
