3/42 Marden's Farmhouse

- II

House. Late C16, altered in C18 and C19. Timber framed, mainly clad with red
brick in Flemish bond, partly weatherboarded, roofed with asbestos tiles. 4
bays facing S, with axial stack in second bay from left end, forming a
lobby-entrance, and external stack at right end, now enclosed by C18/C19 service
range to right of one storey with attics, with end stack. Single-storey lean-to
extension to rear. 2 storeys. Ground floor, 3 mid-C19 tripartite sashes of
2-4-2 lights. First floor, 3 mid-C19 sashes of 6 lights, and blocked aperture
over door. 6-panel flush door, the top 2 panels glazed, early C19, at front of
gabled porch. The brick cladding is C19, with a straight joint behind the
porch, and a plain string course to left of it. The rear elevation is
weatherboarded. The interior has chamfered transverse and axial beams, and
plain joists of horizontal section, all with lamb's tongue stops. 2 wide
wood-burning hearths, blocked and re-faced. The walls have been raised approx.
one metre in the C18 or early C19. Early C19 quarter-turn staircase to rear of
axial stack, with hardwood rail and stick balusters. The difference in the
brick cladding, and the greater ceiling height in the left bay, implies that
this was raised and clad before the remainder, but both within the first half of
the C19. Good brick floor in service range. C18/early C19 hinges on internal
doors. One mid-C19 half-glazed door with handmade glass.
