Listing Text

TM 38 NE
2/40 Shoe Devil Farmhouse

Former farmhouse. Late C16 and early C17. Timber-framed and plastered with
thatched roof. A main range, partly of 1 1/2 storeys and partly of 2 storeys,
and a cross-wing of 2 storeys and attics. An internal chimney-stack in the
higher section of the main range, adjoining the cross-wing, has 4 attached
hexagonal shafts on a rectangular base with a small recessed panel: this
bears a spurious C17 date added by the present owner. Various casement
windows: in the gable-end of the cross-wing, there is a projecting moulded
tie-beam above the upper window, and a moulded lintel above the lower window.
One large gabled dormer to the main range with a 4-light casement window
supported on small brackets. The former lobby-entrance doorway against the
stack and another doorway on the front have both been blocked. Plain
timbering exposed inside. The principal room of the main range is in 2
irregular bays, with the main beam off-centre, and was probably extended when
the higher section and cross-wing were added. Cross-wing in 2 bays: exposed
studding and ceiling in the ground floor room with chamfered main beam,
curved tops with groove, and joists with lamb's tongue stops; deep middle
rail. Cranked braces on the upper floor and an original upper ceiling. The
newel stair beside the chimney-stack ascends to the attic. Roof in 3 bays:
one row of clasped, and one row of unstepped butt purlins, windbraces. A
lean-to along the rear contains the present entrance door.
