1/12 Conyers Green Farmhouse
- II*

Former farmhouse. C15 and C16. Part one-and-a-half storeys, part 2 storeys
and attics; L-shaped form with a crosswing on the south west which is jettied
at first floor and tie-beam levels. Timber-framed, with partly rendered,
partly roughcast, exterior and plaintiled roofs. 3 chimney-stacks: to the
cross-wing with 2 octagonal shafts with moulded bases and corbelled caps, to
the main range with 2 square shafts linked in saw-tooth fashion, and at the
north end, of complex saw-tooth form. The front has applied Edwardian mock-
timbering: widely-spaced uprights to the main range, panels to the cross-wing.
The 2 jetties of the cross-wing are supported by heavy console brackets; the
gable has fluted bargeboards and a spike finial. A mullion-and-transon type
window to the ground storey and a 3-light casement window above. Small-paned
casement windows to main range with flat hoodmoulds in Tudor style; 2 gabled
dormers with cast-iron casement windows, fluted bargeboards, and terracotta
spike finials. Entrance door, in the angle of the 2 ranges, with applied
Gothick pilaster-strips. The interior has very good framing. The main range
contains the remains of a 2-bay open hall with crown-post roof: open truss
with large heavy arched braces, one removed, to the cambered tie-beam; crown
post with moulded cap and base; raised pilasters down the faces of the main
posts have been hacked away. Main cross-beams only of the inserted ceiling
visible. The inserted stack backs on to the cross-entry, and has a single
hearth with open fireplace containing some reused stone blocks. Beyond the
hall on the north-east side is a C16 extension with an upper floor and end
chimney-stack: some further additions and alterations here, but probably added
as a heated kitchen at the same time as the wide 5-bay cross-wing at the other
end of the hall replaced the original medieval service area. The cross-wing
has two 2-bay rooms separated by an internal chimney-stack: one reconstructed
hearth includes some reused stone blocks. Ceiling-beams with 4" chamfer and
curved stops; joists exposed in one room; close-studding, and 2 original
windows, set high, with ogee-moulded mullions: one on the north west wall of 5
lights, the other on the south west of 7 lights. A blocked doorway with
rectangular head to the frame on each side of the fireplace.
