Small farmhouse. Early - mid C16; a late C16 - early C17 improvement, a major late
C17 refurbishment, modernised in the late C19 and again circa 1980. Plastered local
C17 brick with some earlier plastered cob; stone rubble and brick stacks and the C17
brick chimneyshaft have been much repaired since; thatch roof.
Plan and development: 3-room-and-through-passage plan house built on level ground
facing north. At the right (east) end is a parlour with a gable-end stack. Next to
it is the passage. The large central room was the kitchen originally and it has an
axial stack backing onto the unheated left (east) end room which was formerly the
dairy or buttery. The dairy may be secondary; if not it was largely rebuilt in the
C19. The rest of the house is basically the result of a major late C17
refurbishment although some earlier features were incorporated. 2 storeys with a
lean-to outshot on the left (east) end.
Exterior: regular but not symmetrical 4-window front of C20 casements with glazing
bars. The central two first floor windows have late C17 oak frames; they are 3
lights with chamfered mullions. The central and right ground floor windows also
have late cli oak frames but are missing their mullions. The centre window has a
low segmental arch over. The passage front doorway is right of centre and it
contains a C20 door behind a contemporary porch with a monopitch shingled roof. The
main roof is gable-ended.
Interior: the former dairy end has only plain C19 carpentry detail. The kitchen
has a large stone rubble fireplace with a chamfered and scroll-stopped oak lintel.
The axial beam here is chamfered with scroll stops but is west (passage) end has
been removed to accommodate the C20 stair. According to the owner there was an oak
plank-and-muntin screen between the kitchen and passage before the circa 1980
modernisation. There is still an oak plank-and-muntin screen on the parlour side of
the passage. It is late C16 - early C17 and the parlour side has contemporary
paintwork, a geometric pattern of intersecting lines around bunches of flowers. The
parlour fireplace is late C17; it is plastered brick with a curving pentan and has a
chamfered and scroll-stopped oak lintel. The crossbeam is chamfered but the stops
have been hacked off. A section of the roof remains from the early - mid C16
farmhouse. It is carried on 2 side-pegged jointed crucks. These trusses along with
the purlins, common rafters and most of the battens are smoke-blackened from the
original open hearth fire. It seems that when the house was refurbished in the late
C17 these trusses were left standing whilst the original walls were demolished and
new brick walls erected. Each end of this C16 roof are late C17 A-frame trusses.
