Street Farmhouse


Former farmhouse. C16. 2 storeys and attics. Timber-framed, with C20
rendering in panels. C20 plaintiles. Basic 3-cell plan, with the south end
remodelled in poorer timberwork in the C18. The north end has a complex gable
in small red Tudor bricks, incorporating a chimney-stack: high moulded brick
copings to the slopes of the roof; stepped sides and tumbled brickwork to the
stack, which projects slightly. 4 attached hexagonal shafts stand on a large
rectangular base, and the back of the stack has diaper patterns in blue
headers and 5 small circular porthole-like openings. This stack has 3
hearths, including one in the attic. There is also an internal chimney stack
with a plain red brick shaft. The south end has a mid-C19 red brick gable in
Victorian Romanesque style, reminiscent of the estate cottages at Troston
built at the instigation of Robert Lofft of Troston Hall, who was lord of the
manor at Stanton and owner of this farmhouse. Moulded copings with corbelling
at the eaves and crowstepping decoration. 3 paired casement windows with
heavy rounded rusticated surrounds. The room at the north end has a fireplace
with moulded brick surround. The ceiling of the central room was removed
during mid C20 restoration, to make a lofty hall with stair and gallery.
