CHULMLEIGH SS 71 SW 6/12 East Cheldon Barton - II Barton farmhouse, now used as holiday home. Probably early C16 but possibly earlier fabric concealed, remodelled in late C16 and again in C17 with C19 and C20 alterations. Rendered stone rubble and cob. Asbestos slate roof, half-hipped at left end, hipped to right end, and hipped to rear wing. Rear lateral stone rubble hall stack with pronounced batter. Stone rubble stack with tapered cap and 2 bread oven projections at right end. 2 brick stacks to outer flue of rear wing. Plan: Probably originally a 3-room and through-passage plan, with lower end to right, but partition on lower side of through-passage has been removed and the front doorway blocked. Probably in C18 a wing containing principal staircase and second parlour was added to rear left end creating overall L-shaped plan, with a dairy/service outshut to rear of hall and lower end. Roof not accessible at time of survey, but known to be of cruck construction and smoke-blackened, and change in floor levels suggests possible phased insertion of floors, the hall ceiled possibly as late as mid C17. The lower end appears to have been largely remodelled in C19 and has a second staircase running up beside rear wall. Exterior: 2 storeys. 5 window range. All C20 3-light casements. C19 doorcase to outer face of rear wing with 6 panelled door, panelled reveals and bracketted hood. Interior: lower end has stone arch rather than more usual timber lintel and 2 bread ovens. Good quality C17 hall ceiling with 2 cross ceiling beams and bressumers at each end which have twin ovolo mouldings. Ovolo moulded hall fireplace lintel. Stud partition between hall and inner room incorporating good shoulder headed doorway with chanfered surround. Inner room has rough chamfered axial ceiling beam supported on timber corbel and jowled post. Roof not inspected but known to be of good quality late medieval construction.
