High House Farmhouse


A tall brick house of circa 1700 with an earlier timber-framed wing of uncertain
date to the east. Two storeys and dormers, colour-washed brick. Five early
C18 sashed windows with flush cased frames and thick glazing bars, each with
18 lights. Fine central doorcase with elaborate shell hood on richly carved
console brackets, wreathed pulvinated frieze; the doorcase now frames an-early
sash window. Wood modillioned eaves cornice. Three flat-topped sashed dormers.
Tall half-hipped roof. Wing of 2 storeys, timber-framed rendered; two 3-light
windows with pointed lights like those of The Old Anchor (qv), lower window
with flat cornice top. In eastern bay projecting 2 storey porch with a window
of 2 pointed lights, over the entrance, segmental headed porch opening, old
2-panel door. Old tile roof. Eastern return of main block with simple door,
having a C18 hood on brackets. Rear of house somewhat similar to front,
main block with central doorway with flat hood on carved brackets. Five sash
windows but no dormers.
Virtually complete original interior, fully panelled to ground and first floor
(bolection moulded panelling to rear rooms at both levels). Rich cornices throughout.
Panelled powder rooms survive between front and rear rooms at both levels and beneath stairs to ground floor. Bolection moulded chimney pieces survive to first floor.
Front rooms at all levels with corner fireplaces. Original staircase with cut strings
and pairs of barleysugar twist balusters to each tread. Rococo plasterwork ceiling to
ground floor front room. A remarkable survival of fine quality.
