North Beerhill Farmhouse built in the late 16th century with 18th and 19th century additions and late 20th century modernisation. Rendered cob walls. Slate roof gabled to left end, hipped to the right. Brick stack at left gable end and brick shaft at right-hand end, rendered rubble or cob axial stack. Plan: 3-room and through passage plan, lower end to the left. Hall stack backs onto the passage, unheated inner room, lower room heated by gable end stack. Probably in the 18th century a small unheated dairy wing was added behind the lower room. A 19th century outshut was built behind the hall. Currently undergoing modernisation which includes the insertion of stairs at the rear of the hall. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window front of 19th or early 20th century small-paned 2 and 3-light casements. 20th century leanto porch to left of centre with part-glazed door. Rear elevation has wing projecting from right-hand end and outshot to left of centre. Interior: passage has chamfered cross beams with convex stops. Hall fireplace has granite jams and high chamfered wood lintel. The 2 ceiling beams nearest the fireplace are chamfered in the side towards it and moulded on the other side. The central cross beam is richly moulded. At the higher end of the all is a plank and muntin screen with moulded edges to the muntins and a moulded head-beam. The inner room has a similar moulded beam to the hall. The lower room fireplace is clocked but one granite jamb and the end of the wooden lintel are visible. Roof: 3 old probably original trusses survive - one over the hall/inner room one by the hall stack which has been cut off and one over the lower room. They have straight feet and morticed collars and are not smoke-blackened. Other details: LBS No 93035.
