SJ 85 SW
10/2 Townhouse Farmhouse

Farmhouse. Early C17 with mid-C18 addition. Timber framed with
rendered infill and red Flemish bond brick with a plain tile roof.
T-shaped plan. Two and three storeys. The cross-stroke of the T
which now forms the principal front is of later date and added to an
earlier 2-cell house of early C17 date which itself appears to have
been altered in the early C18. The road front is of five bays and
three storeys symmetrically disposed. Central classical door surround
to ground floor with fluted pilasters supporting dosserets and an open
pediment containing a fanlight and door of 6 raised and fielded
panels. To either side at ground floor level are window surrounds
with stone sills and flat arched heads of gauged brick set with C20
windows of 4 x 5 panes. Five similar windows to the first and second
floor level, save that the third and fifth windows to both floors have
been blocked. Sun firemark is right of the central window. Gable
stacks to either side, each of 4 flues. The right hand side has a
ground floor door at left with flat-arched head and windows to the
first and second floors above this. The early C17 wing at left of
this has 12 x 3 cells of small framing with angle braces to right and
left and to the 4th and 7th uprights from left. Two C19 3-light
casement windows to ground and first floors and two C19 windows with
chamfered mullions and narrow lights, that at ground floor level of 6
lights, that at first floor level of 3 blocked lights. Central ridge
chimney stack. To left of this is a further C18 brick extension and
the rear of this wing is all refaced in C18 or C19 brick.
