4/7 Paradise Farmhouse
- (formerly listed as Street
7/5/54 Farmhouse)

- II*

House, formerly farmhouse, c.1500. A 3-cell Wealden-type house of unusually
high quality. 2 storeys. Timber-framed and plastered; the wide cells at
either end have upper floors jettied at the front and supported on brackets,
and the oversailing eaves plate above the hall has large windows supported by
brackets, and the oversailing eaves plate above the hall has large brackets
with carved spandrels. Plaintiled roof with central and end chimneys of red
brick. Mainly C20 oak-mullioned windows, some inserted into original openings.
Early C19 6-panelled entrance door, partly glazed. The cross-passage entrance
is formed within the service end, with original short plank-and-muntin speres
with carved brackets supporting the top rail ; a little later the speres were
converted to a screen, with 2 arched doorways having carved spandrels. The 1st
floor structure to the hall is richly carved with cresting, crenellation and
trailing leaves, and the common joists have double-ogee moulding. Over the
hall is a 2-bay roof with octagonal crownpost. The high quality of the
original workmanship of the house suggests that it may have been built for some
special function.
