CHURCHSTOW - SX 74 NW 5/62 Coombe Farmhouse GV II Farmhouse. Early C19. Slatestone rubble, slate roofs. Probably originated as symmetrical block with central 2-storey porch with kitchen wing left, and further long wing to right added. Two storeys and cellar. Front has 3-light wood casements set to chamfered wood lintel beneath stopped stone drips and slate cills, either side of porch with similar 2-light and drip over flat-far- centred voussoir arch over an inner C20 glazed door. Porch and gable ends have alternating rusticated quoins in thin-bedded stone; gable stack, right. Left return has a 3-light with stone drip at each level in gable with quoins; set back kitchen wing also with similar 3 light at each level. Three front windows retain decorative geometrical leading, also one light to kitchen wing. Right return has plain gable, ten, in extended wing, two 2-light horizontal bar case- ments at ground floor and two 2-light glazing bar at first floor. The back, with a deep courtyard includes a 2-light with leading in back wall; wings end in gables, large external stack to kitchen wing and a further stack to external junction with front block, just below ridge height. Interior: inspected in part only: wide central hall with flagstone floor has stick stair; front windows with shutters. Two front rooms with replaced fireplaces. The plan and use of moulded dripstones over the windows suggest a possible early C18 house, but the detail otherwise throughout seems to be C19; possibly on the site of an earlier house; full interpretation dependent on complete internal inspection.
