No Contributor Year: 201032 Badenyon, Jeans House
This house used to belong to Jean Farquharson who lived there until the 1970’s
Her picture can be seen here.
Jean appears to have been a formidable character. She was known to ride a motorcycle through the Glen and a late resident of a nearby croft recalls the welcome her mother received from Jean when they arrived in the glen. They received a note which said “do not put a foot on my land or I will shoot you.” Fortunately this did not happen and they became friends later.
JEANNIE´S HOUSE: single storey and attic, 3-bay farmhouse. Snecked rubble with squared rubble quoins and margins. Stone and timber mullions. Symmetrical S elevation with pitch-roofed timber porch to centre bay with flanking bipartite windows giving way to bipartite dormers and central cast-iron rooflight.
3-pane upper sashes over tall 2-pane lower sashes, 4-pane glazing pattern to rear, all in timber sash and case windows. Grey slates. Coped ashlar stacks with clay cans; ashlar-coped skews.
INTERIOR: ground floor with cast-iron stove built into open hearth to W room, and timber fire-surround with tiled cheeks and cast-iron grate to E; timber dog-leg staircase with ball-finialled newel post.
The cottage prior to renovation in 1907 can be seen here
