3/48 Spring's Farmhouse

- II

Former farmhouse. Part mid C16, part early C18. 2 storeys. Timber-framed
and rendered; clay pantiles; a C19 red brick gable on the right. An internal
chinmney-stack set below the ridge, with a plain rebuilt shaft of Tudor red
brick. C20 replacement casement windows, with transomes on the ground floor.
The present entry is into a small C20 extension on the left end. Inside, to
the right of the stack, is one C16 bay with good studding and reversed braces.
On the upper floor, a 5-light window with plain chamfered mullions, replaced.
Clasped purlin roof. An upper fireplace with a square brick surround has
chamfered jambs and plaster, rusticated to simulate stone. One good studded
door with narrow moulded planks. This part of the house was lengthened about
½ a bay, probably when the C19 brick gable was added. To the left of the
stack, the framing is later and less substantial: thin joists set on edge,
small main beams and primary braces in the walls. This is apparently an C18
replacement of an earlier section. A small C18 wing extends at the rear.
