Home Farmhouse


Farmhouse, formerly the home farm to Farringdon House. Late C17 - early C18,
(probably earlier origins), thoroughly refurbished in late C19. Some plastered,
some exposed late C17 - early C18 English bond brick on low footings of red
conglomerate stone, some late C19 bricks; late C17 - early C18 brick stacks, their
shafts plastered and extended with late C19 brick; slate roof with late C19 crested
ridge tiles.
L-shaped house with main block facing south-west and apparently derived from a 3-
room-and-through-passage plan house with the service end room at the left (north-
western) end. The inner and service end rooms have end stacks, the former
projecting, and the hall has a rear lateral stack. The front door has a late C19 2-
storey porch. Late C17 service block at right angles to rear of inner room
connecting to the farmbuildings (q.v.). 2 storeys with attics to the main block.
Regular 1:1:2 window front with a tiny extra ground floor light at the left end
containing diamond panes of leaded glass. The windows have segmental arches over
and all are C20 replacement casements, some with glazing bars. The attic windows
are gabled half-dormers. The front door is C20 and part-glazed to a late C19
Jacobean-style 2-storey gabled porch. It has a first floor room supported on ornate
timber posts which rest on a brick plinth, and have chamfered edges, moulded bases
and fluted caps. The upper room is built of brick-nogged timber framing and the
front has a canted bay window with its own slate roof. The gable eaves of the porch
roof are carried forward and carried on an open truss filled with ornate diagonal
bracing. The main roof is gable-ended. This main front is plastered and appears
late C19 but the plat band at first floor level shows that the basic fabric is late
C17. Round the corner the right (south-eastern) side is of exposed brick. It too
has a plat band at first floor level. The gable end of the main block is blind, the
gable itself clearly late C19 brick contrasting with the rougher and more varied
late C17-early C18 brick below. The door to the rear block has a shallower and
simpler version of the front porch and behind that is a casement with glazing bars
on each floor.
Interior was thoroughly rebuilt in the C19 and refurbished again circa 1950. The
original plan appears to remain but no carpentry is exposed and the joinery detail
is C20. Roof not inspected.
Formerly known as Hoods Farmhouse.
