Historic Environment Record entry
This late 18th century farmhouse contributes to the rural setting, enclosing its garden to the west. It retains its historic character externally and its original granite fireplace, with 19th century decorated room internally. Datestone on the façade.
Previously known as Lowlands, the name was changed to Oakborne in the early 20th century. A building is shown on this site on the Richmond map of 1795. Its double pile and north wing are considered to have been built in the early 19th century. Main farmhouse with wing to west.
Extending along the western boundary is a vine house. Front elevation: slate roof with Victorian style dormer windows. Three brick chimneys.
Central entrance, double pile. Walls to western rooms demolished to give open plan across five bays. Original granite corbel fireplace remains in west room on north gable. Fireplace opening with timber beam remains in northeast room, which has original oak beam in ceiling. First floor northeast room in north wing retains oak boarded walls and ceiling, with 19th century fire surround and grate.
Vine house retains timber framed windows and glazing.
