Listing Text

TM 05 NE
4/68 Gooserye Farmhouse
- (formerly listed as
9-12-55 Houghton Park Farmhouse)
- II

Former farmhouse, late C15 or early C16 with alterations of mid C16. A
complete example of a half-H plan open hall house. Hall range of one storey
with attics; 2 storey cross-wings jettied at the front. Timber-framed and
plastered; at the rear is some exposed close-studding. Concrete plaintiled
roofs; a large gabled C19/C20 casement dormer in the hall range. An axial
chimney and an external chimney to right, both of red brick. Early C20
casements of 3 lights with transomes. Central glazed C20 entrance porch; the
inner doorway framed and boarded. Both hall and parlour cross-wing to left
have complete crownpost roofs, the former is lightly smoke-blackened. The
cambered arch-braced tie-beam at the centre of the hall has an octagonal
crownpost with 4-way bracing and a moulded capital and base. The crownpost at
the open truss of the parlour wing is similar but has only 2-way bracing.
Good close-studding throughout. A fine upper floor was inserted into the hall
in mid C16 with roll-moulded main beams. (c.f. Roydon Hall, Creeting St.
Peter). A similar 1st floor is apparently a replacement of the original floor
over the parlour. One original service room doorway survives with a 4-centred
arched head. C17 fireplace in the hall; two more with arched heads in the
right-hand wing.
