East Lounston Farmhouse. Farmhouse. 17th century with additions at rear and against right gable wall. Roughcast stone, probably with some cob in the upper storey. Thatched roof, half-hipped at left-hand end. Late 19th century brick chimneystacks on right-hand gable and on ridge, off-centre to left.
Three-room and through-passage plan, the left-hand room (at upper end) a farm store room with no evidence of access from inside the house. Two storeys; lean-to additions single storied. Four-window front. Windows in three right-hand bays have 19th century wood casements, those in ground storey with 6 panes per light, those in second storey with 3 panes per light. Doorway in second bay from right has plank door with inserted window; 20th century porch, probably of brick. Left-hand bay of ground storey has plank door to store room; this has wrought-iron strap-hinges with spade-shaped terminals, and is set in an old frame with chamfered jambs. Above, in second storey, an unglazed 2-light wood-mullioned window, probably of late 18th or early 19th century.
Interior has few exposed early features, although these are likely to exist, concealed under plaster. Right-hand ground-storey room has a chamfered cross-beam with a straight-cut stop. At rear of through-passage is an old plank door (the former back door, now within an added lean-to) with wrought-iron strap-hinges having spade-shaped terminals. The storeroom to left (separated from the domestic part by a stone wall) has a longitudinal chamfered upper floor beam; some of the joists, turned round from their proper position, are chamfered with step-stops. This room never seems to have had a fireplace.
Upper storey and roof-structure not inspected.
