Details

UPLOWMAN ST 01 NW 4/162 Gulmoor Farmhouse - - II

Farmhouse. Mid or late C17. Plastered stone rubble, stone rubble stacks with stone rubble chimneyshafts; slate roof, formerly thatch. Plan: 3-room-and-through-passage plan house facing south-east and built across the hillslope. The left (south-west) room was the kitchen and has a large gable-end stack. The centre room is separated from the kitchen by the passage. It is an unheated dairy and there is a corridor and the staircase across the back from the passage to the right room, a parlour with a gable-end stack. 2 storeys. Exterior: irregular 4-window front of C19 and C20 casements, the latest without glazing bars. The passage front doorway is left of centre and contains a C19 plank door. The roof is gable-ended. Interior: is largely the result of the C19 modernisation but the original layout is well-preserved. The only carpentry detail is in the former kitchen. There is an oak doorframe with chamfered surround from the passage to the kitchen and the crossbeam has unstopped soffit chamfers. Both fireplaces are blocked. Both have oven housings projecting externally but the largest is that for the original kitchen. The farmer reports that the kitchen fireplace is very large. A cupboard to left of it was probably a walk-in curing chamber. The roof trusses are boxed into first floor partitions and the roofspace is inaccessible. Nevertheless the farmer reports probably original A-frame trusses with pegged lap-jointed collars. This is an interesting and apparently well-preserved single phase C17 farmhouse. Its site is unusually high and it has extensive views. It is probably associated with a mid or late C17 enclosure.
