5/38 Park House

- II

House. Early to mid C16, mid C17 and C18. 2 storeys and attics.
Timber-framed and rendered with black glazed pantiled roofs.
Extensively modernised in 1960s. A range of 3-light small-paned
C20 casement windows to each storey: one 2-light window above the
porch: 4 gabled dormers with fluted bargeboards and 2-light
casements. A C20 enclosed gabled porch with boarded door. One
internal chimney-stack, and another on the south gable end, both
with plain rebuilt red brick shafts. 8 bays including a chimney
bay. The basic house, C16, consisted of the bay to the south of
the internal stack, and the 2, possibly 3, bays to the north of
it. In the bays to each side of the stack, both forming complete
rooms originally, the ground storey ceilings have heavy
unchamfered joists, on the north, the main beam has a multiple
roll-moulding. When the fireplace on the south side of the stack
was opened up during restoration a fireback was discovered,
bearing the Royal Arms and the date 166- (most probably 1660, in
celebration of the Restoration). The 2 upper rooms in the
central section-of the house have reused roll-moulded joists, cut
in half lengthwise and set on edge: one has an incised circular
floral motif. The northernmost bay has a plain heavy beam-and-
joist ceiling, but the 2 intermediate bays have had the joists
replaced at a very late stage. At the south end, 2 C18 bays have
been added, with an end chimney-stack: typical late framing,
reused timbers, roof with 2 rows of butt purlins. At the rear, 2
matching one-and-a-half storey wings, added in the mid C17, with
butt-purlin roofs: below one floor a number of mummified cats
were discovered during restoration, and 2 remain in the house.
Various original doorways, some blocked, remain, and visible
outer parts of the frame are weathered. This is the only
surviving house of the lost village of Little Fakenham.
