11/1 Cae Howell

- II

Farmhouse. Late C16, partly rebuilt in late C19 with later additions
and alterations. Timber framed with rendered and painted brick infill
partly replaced by C19 purple brick; slate roof with fishscale bands.
Possibly originally cruciform in plan of central lobby-entry type but
now having mid-C20 two-storey flat-roofed addition to rear. 2 storeys
and gable-lit attic. Original framing survives to right gable end
only: jettied to first floor and attic with moulded and chamfered bressumers
supported on carved corner brackets with thin colonettes, attic bressumer
with a variety of quatrefoil and other carved decoration. Ground floor
has close-set vertical posts with middle rail; circular shapes intersecting
with narrow rectangular panels to first floor except for space below
window which has vertical posts and serpentine brace; concave lozenges
to attic. Original triangular-chamfered wooden mullioned and transomed
windows to ground floor and first floor, lower of 7 lights and upper
of 5. Small Tudor-arched window to attic. Presence of carved brackets
at 45° angle to left and right on ground floor and of another to rear
(now internal) suggests that front and rear walls were also jettied.
Lighter rectangular panelling survives to front wall on right but this
is probably later than that to gable end. Front has C20 casements
to either side of central 2-storey gabled porch (probably on site of
earlier timber framed structure), that to right in position of infilled
doorway. Porch has C20 casement to first floor and 4-panel door (top
panels now glazed) under outer C20 gabled brick porch. Central brick
ridge stack has 4 diagonally set shafts. Salop Fire Insurance Plate
numbered 13161 to left of first-floor window to right gable end. Interior.
Right ground-floor room has deep-chamfered cross and spine beams with
dragon beam to rear right corner. Left ground-floor room has richly
moulded cross-beam ceiling with run-out stops and moulded dragon beam
to rear left corner. C18 wooden wall cupboard to rear right corner
has pilastered round-headed arch with 'keystone'. Wide central stack
with staircase behind in right room. Chamfered ceiling beams on first
floor and timber frame said to partly survive beneath plaster board
to original back wall. Double-purlin roof (visible in roof space)
in 3 bays has king-struts (missing to left truss) and raking struts
supporting principal rafters; short straight windbraces. Wide boarded
floor boards to first floor and attic. Building foundations are said
to have been discovered beneath lawn to front of house. C20 addition
to rear is not of special architectural interest.
