The Homestead


House. Early C16. Timber framed, plaster rendered, and tiled roof with
stack slightly north of the ridge with some rebuilt upper courses. External
stack at west end with two alabaster panels. Each has a quatrefoil with a
shield. Single range of six bays, and a narrower chimney bay. Two storeys
with the south side jettied at first floor, except for two bays at the west
end. There is internal evidence that these two bays have always been open at
yround floor level on south side possibly having an outshut. This has now
been demolished and replaced by modern brickwork. Three C19 windows at first
floor and three shuttered windows at ground floor. Doorway leads to
cross-passage, with an opposing doorway in the north wall. The rear wall has
a six-light window with hollow moulded mullions to the original hall, and at
first floor two, three-light diamond mullion windows. At the east gable end
there is a window with shafted rectangular mullions. Interior: The framing
is of substantial and uniform scantling with closely set studs. There are
shallow arch braced tie beams. The clasped side purlin roof has wind
bracing. There are broad stop chamfers to spine beams and joists,
particularly those of the room at the east end of the house. Clunch and
brick inglenooks hearths at ground floor. At first floor small, chamber
hearths including one with four centred arch, chamfered, of clunch. The
cross-passage retains the screen with an original doorway leading to the
hall. Four centred arch. Intersecting main beams in the room at the west
end. Staircase leading off the cross-passage, possibly turned round. A
rebate for a doorway leading into the present staircase suggests a later
alteration. The staircase however is of the original solid wooden treads.

R.C.H.M.: West Cambs. Mon. (3)
