TL 31NE WARE RURAL FANHAMS HALL ROAD
2/50 New Hall
(Formerly listed under General)
House. Late C15 open hall house on a moated site, converted by
extension in C17 to a house intended for occupation by 2
households. Timber frame roughcast, some brick. Steep old red
tile roofs. E plan house facing N with several gabled rear
projections. Former open hall (part smoke blackened) in centre
part with jettied W crosswing for parlour and a service bay. In
C17 unusual transformation for two households. Upper floor
inserted in hall (heightened) and chimney stack built partly in
crosspassage. Present wide fireplace and chimney shafts are
late C17 probably replacing a timber chimney serving the hall.
This is unit 1 with a lobby entrance beside the stack. For the
2nd unit the service bay was heightened, its upper floor raised,
and a jettied E crosswing added with 2 ground floor rooms, the
front room unheated but the rear with a wide kitchen fireplace.
Unit 2 was entered by the present crosspassage behind the stack.
There were separate front doors, side by side, and similar
staircase positions. 2-storeys, 5-windows. In the centre are
twin doors with round-arched panelling under a porch having
scratch moulded panelling and 2 seats inside. The porch is 2-
storeyed, the upper room having a casement window and a
bargeboarded gable, and being supported on timber posts. The bay
at either side of the porch has 2 triple-casement windows (one
above, one below) in flush moulded frames with pointed 'Gothic'
arches, the lower ones with small hoods. Each end bay is a
slightly projecting cross wing having steep gables with
bargeboards and finials. The right hand bay retains its jettied
upper floor supported on brackets, and a small canted bay window
below. The left hand wing has a rectangular triple casement on
the ground floor. Both end wings have a triple casement on the
upper floor, with 'Gothic' fenestration under a triangular
pediment. Central chimney stack with clustered diagonal shafts.
A painted brick wing on the left to the rear is dated 1866.
Interior has much scratch moulded oak panelling, heavy late C17
stair with string and turned balusters (W part), marble buffet in
rear wall, heavy crown-post roof to W crosswing. (VCH (1912)
