2/29 Rookyards Farmhouse

- II

Farmhouse. Early C17. 2 storeys and attics: L-shaped form. Timber-framed;
rendered on rear gable and upper floor of rear wall, the remainder of the main
range faced in red brick, in an unusual bond of 2 stretchers and one header to
each course. A 2-storey wing at the east end, extending southwards, is brick-
built, in C19 English bond. Plaintiled roofs; fluted bargeboards and spike
finials to gables. 2 internal chimney-stacks, one with a plain shaft, the
other with a rebuilt shaft of 4 attached diagonally-set chimneys. 3 3-light
and one 5-light early C19 casement windows to each storeys of the main range,
and similar windows to the wing, all of mullion-and-transome type with pintle
hinges and segmental arches to frames and surrounds. 2 single-storey gabled
brick porches; doors with 6 flush panels, the top 2 glazed. One door abuts on
the principal chimney-stack, and the building appears to have a basic lobby-
entrance plan. It stands on a site with the remains of a complex moat.
