4/36 Baileys Farmhouse


Farmhouse. C16 gabled crosswing in middle, C17 E range, late C17 2-bays
W range with contemporary 3-bays former stable extending to W. Timber
frame roughcast with red brick casing to ground floor at front, and dark
weatherboarded former stable at W. Rear of house tilehung with stucco to
ground floor. Steep old red tile roofs. A long irregular 2-storeys house
facing N with lower single-storey stable extending to W. The 2-bays
crosswing, formerly jettied to N presumably had its open hall to E
replaced by the present E range in the C17. Entrance is by a gabled
porch beside crosswing on E into hall with a heated inner room at E end.
The floors are carried on cross-beams and axial joists. Beyond the large
external chimney on the W side of the crosswing is a late C17 extension
with an oven built into a wedge-shaped mass of brickwork at rear of its
W bay presumably under a lean-to replaced by the present sun room. These
domestic arrangements suggest that the crosswing was always a service
wing but there is a cellar under the E range. 2- and 3-lights flush
casement windows. Large external E gable chimney. Interior has heavy
flat joists to floor of crosswing and trimming for stair next rear wall.
Upper floor has central partition, cambered tie-beams on curved braces,
and curved windbraces to purlin in each slope of clasped-purlin roof. E
range has swept jowled posts, straight braces to tie-beams, and
clasped-purlin roof on collars. Ceiled under collars. W range has
unjowled posts, straight braces and clasped-purlin roof.
