FLIXTON BY BUNGAY
TM 38 NW
2/2 Hill Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Early C16 and early C17. 2 storeys and attics. Timber-framed and
rendered; plaintiles; a jetty along the south-west gable with supporting
brackets, and a projecting tie-beam at eaves level above. An internal
chimney-stack has 2 rebuilt square red brick shafts with large attached heads
set on an older base. Irregular fenestration: a 3-light casement window to
each storey, and 2 smaller 3-light casements on the ground floor, all probably
Edwardian. A late C19 colourwashed brick porch: gables, plaintiles, fluted
barge-boards, spike finial, chamfered and arched door surround; plank door.
Very fine interior in 2 distinct sections. At the south-west end a 2-bay
parlour with multiple roll-mouldings to main beam and joists and run-off
stops. The mouldings continued down the main posts, but have been cut away.
The boarding between the joists is unplastered. The fireplace lintel has a
matching multiple roll-moulding. In the gable-end are 2 high 5-light windows
with moulded mullions, partly damaged, which originally flanked a longer
central window, now replaced. The room above, now divided up, has the main
cross beams and cornice all heavily moulded, and in the gable 2 unusual outer
windows with arched spandrels to the heads, possibly initially flanking an
oriel. Good 2-bay roof, with arched braces to the collars and collar purlins.
Including the chimney-bay, these 3 bays form the oldest surviving part of the
house, which must have been added to an earlier hall range. The fireplace
lintel on the north-east side of the stack has a moulding matching that in the
parlour, but there is a join in the frame, with 2 trusses next to each other,
on the line of the stack, and the remaining 2 bays are an early C17
replacement: heavy unchamfered joists and chamfered main beam; moulded post-
heads; roof with closely-set principal rafters.
