3/37 Whitehouse Farmhouse


Farmhouse. C16 and C17, with C19 additions. 2 storeys, with attic to part; a
1½ storey brick lean-to added along the rear. Timber-framed; brick encased
main range, rendered on the front; clay pantiles. 3 3-light C20 casement
windows in traditional style with a horizontal bar to lights to the upper
floor, and 2 similar 4-light windows with segmental arched heads to the ground
floor, all in shallow reveals. Central C20 half-glazed door. An internal
chimney-stack with a large plain red brick shaft. Interior now has a 2-cell
lobby-entrance form, but this has evolved: at the north end a change of roof-
structure indicates a C17 extension. The main beam at the south end has a
supporting post from which the brace and a decorative shaft have been removed,
but which still has ogee-moulding down its sides. This appears to have been
part of an open truss, and on the upper floor a second post has been inserted
beside it. 2 original tie-beams have been removed and others inserted, some
with partitions. The present stack also appears to be an insertion. The
change in roof-type occurs a little to the north of the stack: the older roof,
of which only a small section is exposed, has moulding along the clasped
purlins and shallow-arched solid windbraces; the later roof has 2 rows of butt
purlins. In the rear wall at the north end is a blocked original 4-light
window with hollow chamfer moulding to the mullions: the surfaces are
weathered, and this may have been within the gable end of a former range
extending westwards. A straight flight of stairs was inserted at the south
end of the house in the early C18, and a corridor created on the upper floor
at the same time.
