15/121 Tuckett's Farmhouse
Farmhouse and adjoining house (single build). 1904 (datestone) by William Curtis
Green for P.D. Tuckett. Rendered with a red tiled roof, gabled at ends, with
sprocketted eaves ; rendered stacks, some timber frame and weatherboard detailed.
Vernacular Revival style, sited above an exceptional group of traditional thatched
farmbuildings and a thatched farm cottage.
Plan: Irregular overall L plan : the main block facing south-east a family house for
the owner, with a tenanted farmhouse in a crosswing at the right end with a single-
storey rear dairy wing to the farmhouse. Front door to family house on front
elevation, front door to farmhouse on right return (north-east elevation).
Exterior: The main block is single-storey and attic at the left with a 2-storey stair
projection to the right. 2-storey crosswing with a single storey rear wing on the
same axis. Asymmetrical 2:1 window front (one window to the crosswing). The main
block is buttressed at the left with a timber front door flanked by shallow buttress
features, a 4-light timber casement to the left of the door and a gabled attic
dormer. The 2-storey projection to the right has an asymmetrical gable to the front,
the upper storey carried on shallow decorative corbels with a datestone PDT AD 1904 :
1 ground floor and 1 first floor 2-light timber casement. The crosswing, at the
right end, has a timber framed gable with deep verges carried on angled timber
brackets and a 4-light first floor oriel. The right return (the crosswing) has a
shallow gable of asymmetrical profile, the front verge swept down almost to ground
level. Plank front door and 2 4-light casements within the gable, one 3-light
casement to the left. The single-storey dairy wing has a lean-to and lateral stack.
The left return of the main block has a ground floor bay window with a lean-to roof.
Interior: The left end of the house is perfectly intact : stone floor, inglenook
fireplace with a punch-dressed grey limestone chimneypiece, contemporary joinery and
carpentry designed by Curtis Green, contemporary kitchen fittings. The farmhouse
also retains a Curtis Green stone chimneypiece.
An early example of Curtis Green's work ; he set up in practice in 1898, some of his
houses and cottages were illustrated in The Builder (Gray). An outstandingly
intact Vernacular Revival house, starred as part of a remarkable group of Vernacular
Revival and traditional C17 and C18 thatched buildings at Tuckett's Farm.
