1209-0/9/10003 Dunsden Farmhouse

House. Probably late Medieval, but largely rebuilt in the C17.
Red brick in mainly random bond, platband at rear;
timber-framed cross-wing largely rebuilt in brick. Clay plain
tile roof with gabled ends. Brick axial and gable-end stacks.
PLAN: The cross-wing, at the left [NW] end, is all that
survives of a Medieval house, the hall of which has been
demolished. The main brick range is of 3-room plan with an
axial stack between the centre and right hand rooms [probably
originally with a lobby entrance] and a small inner room on
the left [now an entrance and stair hall with a porch at the
front in the angle with the cross-wing]. The cross-wing has a
stack and ovens on the front gable-end and it has been
extended at the rear in the late C20.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window main range with
cross-wing on left with single-storey lean-to on front and C20
gabled porch in the angle. C20 1, 2 and 3-light casements,
those on ground floor in widened cambered arch openings. C20
glazed door to right of centre. Large brick diagonal raking
buttresses on lower right hand end. At rear circa C18 2-light
casements on first floor with leaded panes, extended gable-end
of cross-wing on right with C20 porch in the angle.
INTERIOR: Larger right hand room has chamfered axial beam with
ogee stops at one end, exposed joists and large brick
fireplace with chamfered timber lintel with straight-cut
stops. Smaller central room has chamfered axial beam with
hollow step stops and large rebuilt brick fireplace with long
hollow step stops. Timber-framed wall between centre and small
left room [now hall] which also has chamfered axial beam.
Cross-wing has large chamfered cross beam with straight-cut
stops, one beam replaced and some remaining broad joists;
fireplace largely rebuilt. Roof: The main range has an intact
C17 queen-post and clasped purlin roof structure with curved
wind-braces; common rafter couples, some of which are
smoke-blackened and re-used from former open hall. The
cross-wing was re-roofed in the C17 with side purlins and
common rafter couples.
