6/269 Nos. 1 and 2 Manor Farmhouse (formerly listed as Dadbrook 23.1.68 Farmhouse) GV II

Farmhouse, now 2 houses. C16 or earlier origin, with alterations c. 1600, later C17 alterations, mid C18 alterations to front, internal alterations of C19 and some C20 alterations. Slatestone rubble with granite dressings. Lower end and addition to upper end rendered, front of upper end slate-hung. Early C20 slate roof with crested ridged tiles. Rendered stacks; there is a ridge stack to the lower end, and another ridge stack to lower end which backs on to the passage. Rear lateral hall stack and Rable end stack to inner room to right. Addition to right has stack to inner side, and rear wing heated by gable end stack. Plan of multiple phases, now divided, the lower end to left being No. 1 and the passage and upper end to right No. 2. Circa 1600, the rear wing was added to the inner room, of one-room plan, and a stair tower to the right side of the inner room; this was extended to form a 2-storey addition of one-room plan to the right (upper) end. Probably in the C18, the partition wall between hall and inner room was removed, and solid walls were constructed to form 2 rooms with a passage along the rear giving access to the rear wing and the stair tower. Probably circa 1600, the lower end was extended to left, with a ridge stack to heat the end room created; later in the C17, an additional block was built set back to rear left. This seems to have been single storey, probably raised in height in the C18. When the lower end was extended, a second doorway was made in the gable end, now the front door to No. 1. Only roofover upper end accessible. 2 storeys, with 2-storey gabled porch. The lower end to left has 3-light C20 window at ground floor, and 3-light C19 casement at first floor. The porch has a segmental arched opening in rubble, to left side a narrow unglazed slate-framed light with triangular head, with deep-splayed reveal inside. There are wooden benches to sides and slate floor. The inner doorway is in granite, with 4-centred arch, roll-moulded with recessed spandrels and pyramid stops, square hood mould with stops with roundels. Fine door with 4-centre arched head, in 12 panels with raised chamfered battens and studs, strap hinges to reverse. At first floor the porch has a 2-light granite window with hollow-chamfered mullion and surround, hood. The hall and inner room to right have two 12-pane sashes at ground floor, 2 mid C19 casements at first floor in openings for former sashes. To end right, the wall is stepped back with a small porch set in the angle; the 2-storey addition to the end has a hipped roof, rubble at ground floor, rendered above. At upper ground floor, lighting stair, a 2- light granite window with hollow-chamfered mullion and surround. The right side of this addition has 16.-pane sash at upper level with flight of steps to ground level. To right, the lower 2-storey rear wing has a 12-pane sash at first floor to right. At left side, the gable end of the extend extension of the lower end has a 3-light granite window with plain chamfered mullions at ground floor, 3-light C20 casement at first floor. The main gable end of the lower end is set back to left, with 4-centred arched doorway, with C20 door, 2-light granite window above with plain chamfered mullion and surround. 2-storey block attached to left has gable end facing front; this has a 3-light C20 casement at ground and first floor, slight batter to walls. To the rear, there is a step back'at each floor level, C20 window at ground and first floor. The rear of the lower end projects beyond the passage entrance, and has 2- light and 3-light casement at first floor, 2-light casement and door at ground floor. The rear passage doorway has a 4-centred arch, in granite, hollow-chamfered with pyramid stops, door in 12 panels with raised chamfered battens and studs. Rear lateral external stack with oven at base to left. Rear wing has C20 first floor addition in brick set in angle: at ground floor of wing, two 12-pane sashes with door between and door to right with C20 window inserted; C20 casement and 12-pane sash at first floor. Interior the hall and inner room much altered in the C19, rear hall fireplace blocked. The door to the rear wing has double ovolo-moulded frame with vase stops, door in 9 panels, studded, with strap hinges. The rear wing has fireplace at gable end in granite with flat: head, roll-moulded. The stair to end right is an unusually wide winder; at first floor there is a ledged and braced door to former continuation of stair to attic level, this has strap hinges with foliage ends. This has been replaced by a winder stair from first floor level in the rear wing to inner side. The chamber over the porch has lancet to each side with deep splayed reveal, as at ground floor, both blocked. The rest'of the upper end has been altered in the C19 and C20. The lower end has also been much altered internally, all fireplaces blocked or replaced. Straight stair along rear, probably of early C19; the original service room has a solid wall inserted to rear, closing off the stair and passage/hallway at gable end entrance, possibly constructed at the time the lower end was extended. In the roof over the upper end, only wall-plates remain from early roof, otherwise completely of early C20; solid wall to roof apex between hall and passage. Lower end roof not accessible.
