8/115 Dial Farmhouse


Former farmhouse, c.1530-50. 3-cell plan with lobby-entrance. 2 storeys.
Timber-framed and pebble-dashed. Pantiled roof, once thatched; an axial C16
chimney of narrow pink/buff bricks. Mid C20 casements with transomes. Early
C19 entrance door with 6 fielded panels, the upper pair of panels glazed. A
fine timber-framed entrance porch of c.1500, believed to have been brought
from a house at Mendlesham. Open, with heavy oak posts at front and rear, and
plaintiled roof. The rear tie beam is moulded and embattled, and the front
tie beam has vinescroll carving with a carved animal (perhaps a deer) at the
centre and a freize of Tudor flowers below. The 4-centred arched doorway has
small spandrels enriched with roses. Good quality framing is exposed
throughout the house: close-studding with reversed arch windbracing and a
blocked window with cavetto-moulded mullions. In the hall is a double-ogee
moulded binding beam and roll- and cavetto-moulded joists. Coupled rafter
roof. A very wide open fireplace with a deep lintel serves the hall and is
probably inserted into the original cross entry. At the rear is a wing of
c.1570 with good but plainer framing, and wind-braced clasped purlin roof.
