SO 59 NW CARDINGTON C.P. CHATWALL

5/32 Home Farmhouse 29.1.52 (formerly listed as Chatwall Farmhouse)

- II*

Farmhouse, now house. Circa 1700 incorporating probably early C17 or earlier core; C19 additions. Dressed Hoar Edge Grit sandstone, roughly dressed at rear, and incorporating some timber framing with plastered infill panels; coursed sandstone rubble additions; plain tile roofs. Irregular U-plan house with additions. 2 storeys. Framing: square panels, 4 from sole plate to wall plate. Chamfered plinth; stone ridge stack just off-centre to left; 2 integral lateral stone stacks to rear. 1:1:1-window front with gabled wings; 3-light stone windows with flat-faced mullions and double-chamfered reveals; recessed blind oval panels in gables; central boarded door with heavy bolection- moulded architrave, pulvinated frieze and triangular pediment.Mounting block attached to return of left-hand wing. Right-hand gable end with 2-light mullioned windows and single attic light. Single one-light double chamfered stone window at rear; other rear windows replaced in C19 and C20. Interior: timber framed cross-walls, square panels and closely spaced uprights with middle rails; chamfered beams and joists with ogee stops; large probably early C17 open fireplace in the dining room with chamfered stone reveals and ogee-stopped chamfered lintel; late C17 fireplace in ground-floor room to left at:rear with roll-moulded segmental arch and crude segmental pediment above with carved winged angel in tympanum; ground-floor front room to right has large open corner fireplace with stone reveals and huge lintel; first- floor right-hand room has early C18 corner fireplace with bolection- moulded architrave and pulvinated frieze to mantlepiece; first-floor left-hand room has Cl7 panelled cupboard and blocked stone fireplace; other left-hand bedroom has C18 door with 6 raised and fielded panels, and introduced fireplace with bolection-moulded architrave, moulded cornice, and bolection-moulded panel above; C17 and C18 boarded and 2-panelled doors to first-floor rooms. Collar and tie-beam roof trusses with queen struts and v-struts. A small 2-light flat-faced mullioned attic window formerly beneath the oval panel in the right-hand gable was removed when the house was restored during the 1960s. Despite having C18-type flat-faced mullions the windows have double-chamfered reveals which suggest an earlier date. One possible explanation is that a C16 or early C17 timber framed house (see framing in return of left-hand wing and internally) was remodelled and partly rebuilt in stone in the mid- or late C17 and further remodelled in the early C18 when chamfered mullions were replaced, the doorway altered, and the blind panels added. Alternatively and more probably the timber framed house was conservatively remodelled c.1700, earlier features being no more than survivals. B.O.E., p.95.
