2/14 Carmel

- II

Former farmhouse, previously called Red House Farmhouse. Mid and late C16. 2
storeys and attics; 3-cell plan in 2 builds. Timber-framed, faced in mid C19
red brick, part rendered, part roughcast, part plastered on sides and rear.
Black glazed pantiles. An internal chimney-stack with a plain rebuilt shaft
of Tudor bricks. 3 casement windows to each floor, 2-light to upper floor, 3-
light to ground floor, all with transomes. 4-panelled door with sunk panels,
the top 2 glazed, the under gabled porch roof, and a 2nd door on the extreme
left. The interior has heavy timbering and particularly close studding. The
older part of the house, to the right of the stack, is in 3 bays, and was
originally divided into a 2-bay hall and 2 service rooms with a cross-passage
between. A single main ceiling beam over 30 feet long spans the whole of this
range: it has a double roll-moulding over the former hall, and a plain chamfer
over the former passage and service rooms, supported by arched braces, now
removed. The service end partition has also been taken out. Above it is an
open truss with a heavily cambered tie-beam supported by long arched braces,
all with cavetto moulding and curved stops. A studded partition lies above
the centre of the 2-bay hall. This reversal of layout as between upstairs and
downstairs is most unusual, but does appear to be original to the house. The
parlour end, to the left of the stack, has a main beam to the ground floor
room with 3½" chamfer and curved stops with a double bar. Fireplace lintel
with a pronounced camber and widely chamfered soffit. The upper ceilings are
original, and there are several blocked original windows. Arched braces in
the long walls and tension braces in the end wall; an original upper fireplace
with timber lintel. Long jowls to main posts; arched braces removed. Roof in
2½ bays, with one row of unstepped butt purlins and one row of clasped;
cranked windbraces; the principal rafters are not diminished, but are cut back
and chamfered around the clasped purlins.
