Farmhouse, now a private house. Late C16, early C17 Totternhoe stone
internal chimney to middle room and (?) inserted floor with chamfered
and stopped joists, C17 attics created and large projecting E end
chimney with stair beside it. Late C18 house refaced in brick, converted
to 2 houses in C19, restored c.1930 with low extensions to W and SE.
Timber frame on red brick sill, N front roughcast, rear and ends in red
brick with random blue bricks. Dark weatherboarding over red brick in
extensions. Steep old red tile roofs. A long 2-storeys, attics and
cellar house facing N with lower extensions to rear at SE and W ends. N
front has 4 windows to 1st floor all of 2-lights with small-panes cast
iron casements in wooden frames. 3 2-light and one single light windows
on ground floor with long hip-roofed pointed in middle with a 5-lights
window to RH of door. Massive external E end chimney next to road with 3
flues, pilaster rib on shaft, and corbelled top. Large internal chimney
a third from E rising in rear slope of roof. Internal W gable chimney
with pilaster rib and corbelled cap. E end has 2 storeys and one-storey
lean-to in red and blue brick and 2-light cast iron window on 1st floor.
Brick-on-edge casing to tie-beam of E gable. Gabled dormer to rear at E.
Chamfered axial beams in middle and at E part, but axial joists in W
part. Unusual use of ashlar stonework for large internal chimney, with 2
round-headed chamfered niches in cellar and original fireplace on 1st
floor. RCHM Typescript comments on a 3 rooms plan with originally a
smoke-bay to W of middle room (unusual position), cross-passage at its E
end, and form and size of fireplace added at E end with staircase beside
it shows that this became the parlour end. Interior has exposed framing
with jowled posts, tension bracing in cross-wall, and clasped-purlin
roof on collar-and-queen strut trusses with curved wind-braces.
Edge-halved scarf in front wallplate. (RCHM Typescript).
