Details

INWARDLEIGH SW 59 NE 10/248 Stocken Farmhouse - - II Farmhouse. Circa early to mid C17, possibly with earlier origins. Roughcast cob. Steeply pitched corrugated asbestos roof with gabled ends. Gable end stacks with rebuilt red brick shafts; the right-hand is a large projecting stack, the left end stack also projects but is much smaller. Plan: because the interior was not inspected the plan is uncertain. It is single depth and probably 3 rooms. The large room at the right-hand end is probably the hall/kitchen heated from a gable end stack and with a stair turret at the back. The left-hand room may have been the parlour heated from a gable end stack. Alternatively the left-hand room could have been an unheated service room originally. There is said to be a small unheated service room at the centre with an axial passage in front into which leads the central entrance in a slight projection at the front. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front. At the centre the doorway is in a slight narrow 2 storey projection, with a C20 door on the ground floor and a C20 2- light casement on both the ground and first floors. To the right there is a large late C20 ground floor casement and no window above, The central doorway has a late C20 glazed lean-to porch. The rear elevation has a rectangular projecting stair tower to the left of centre. Interior was inaccessible at the time of the survey in 1987. There is said to be an old bench in the right-hand room, some circa C17 panelling and newel stairs in the turret behind the right-hand room. The roof structure may be of interest.
