3/41 Green Farmhouse


Former farmhouse. C16 and C17. Timber-framed and rendered; old plaintiles.
2 storeys, part with attics; L-shaped form. Boxed-in eaves. An internal
chimney-stack in Tudor brick has 3 short attached hexagonal shafts with
corbelled heads on a rectangular base; a fine stepped stack set externally on
the left has 3 octagonal shafts with moulded caps and bases on a high
rectangular base faced with 2 bands of diaper-patterned tiles (cf. similar
decoration at Crownland Hall, Item 3/43). Mainly 2-light and 3-light casement
windows: on the upper floor with a single horizontal bar to lights, on the
left ground floor, one old window with transome and glazing bars. One C17 3-
light ovolo-moulded mullioned window on the upper floor, and a repaired
original 3-light diamond-mullioned window on the ground floor. 2 matching
entrances (the house was formerly divided into 2) with moulded surrounds and
bracketed flat pediments; mid C20 doors, one fully and one half-glazed. The
central 3 bays form the early C16 core of the house, a 2-cell end chimney type
with cross-entry and 2 service rooms. On the ground floor, the end wall of
the service rooms has been removed, but housings for 2 4-light diamond
mullioned windows remain. Good plain framing throughout, but roof a mid C20
replacement. Long arched braces removed from the truss above the hall
chamber, but cambered tie retains mortice-holes for the queenposts of the
original roof. On the left, a C17 wing which extends to the rear, but was
formerly gabled on the front also; divided into 2 rooms on each floor and in
attics. On the ground floor, an ovolo moulded main beam and widely-spaced
narrow joists; on the upper floor, fireplace with a moulded brick arch; roof
to-part with 2 rows of unstepped'butt purlins, remainder C20 renewed in line
with the front. Some cut-down sections of carved bargeboarding, reused in a
later internal partition, may come from the missing front gable. Late
C16/early C17 parlour end on right, probably added in conjunction with the
present internal stack; timbers mainly covered; a 4-light original window on
the rear wall with chamfered mullions; repaired roof with clasped purlins and
