Full Description

Wash Farm, Milltown, Ashover is a stone built farmhouse with outbuildings [?]. The house is stone built with gables and mullioned windows. (1) A grade II listed farmhouse dated 1670, with 20th century additions and alterations. It is constructed of coursed squared gritstone with ashlar dressings, quoins, coped gables with moulded kneelers, ridge and gable ashlar stacks, and a Welsh slate roof. The west elevation is of two storeys and attics, four bays, with a former doorway against the ridge stack giving a lobby entrance plan. The doorway, with a massive lintel and a quoined surround, is now blocked, with inserted coupled 4 x 3 pane glazing bar sashes standing on a masonry base. To the north of the former doorway is the present doorway with a 20th century door. The north gabled dormer apex carries a plaque inscribed 'I M N 1670'. The south dormer has a 18th century firemark. The windows are generally leaded casements; those to the attics appear to be early. The remodelling and extension to the rear was carried out in 1988. See list for more details. (2)
