TL 51 SW MATCHING CARTER'S GREEN
3/87 Hoggs Farmhouse
Hall house, C15, altered in C17. Timber framed, plastered, roofed with handmade
red clay tiles. 2-bay hall aligned NE-SW with integral service end at NE.
2 bay parlour/solar crosswing at SW, originally jettied at NW, now underbuilt.
Inserted chimney stack at junction of hall and crosswing, forming a lobby
entrance to NW, early C17. Lean-to porch in N angle, now blocked and
incorporated into crosswing to form closets at both floors. Single storey with
attics, and 2 storeys. NW elevation, ground floor, 4 C20 casement windows,
2 gabled dormers with C20 casement windows. One original service doorway with
depressed 4-centred head exposed, other wall framing concealed by interior and
exterior lath and plaster. Main tiebeam of hall removed; binding beam inserted
below it, with axial beam from it to chimney stack, both plain chamfered with
lamb's tongue stops. The roof of the hall was extended over the service end
in the same operation, early C17. The roof of the crosswing is of crownpost
construction, ceiled. The base of the central crownpost is visible at ceiling
level. This building differs from the common pattern of Essex yeoman farmhouses
in important respects - first, in having the single crosswing at the 'high'
end of the hall, and secondly in its subsequent pattern of development. Whereas
in Essex it is common for the first inserted stack of a medieval house to be in
the lower bay of the hall, leaving the cross-entry unobstructed, here it is
placed at the 'high end' with hearths serving the hall and parlour, a pattern
more typical of Suffolk. The pattern of inserted beams is untypical also,
apparently designed to dispose of an obstructive tiebeam. This house has
remained remarkably undisturbed since then. It is clear that most of the
original frame is present within the lath and plaster.
