Listing Text




Farmhouse, late C16, extended in C19 and C20. Timber-framed, plastered,
roof tiled. Originally of 4 bays with axial chimney stack. W extension,
C19 and C20, forming a T-plan, with S extension added in C20. 2 storeys
throughout. 5-window range of C20 sashes, of which the 3 northern ground-floor
windows are of 3 lights each. Roof half-hipped at N end, gabled at S end.
Timber frame exposed internally. Jowled storeyposts, primary straight
bracing in walls, stop-chamfered ceiling beams. The original clasped purlin
roof is intact, half-hipped at both ends, of which the S end is now enclosed
in the C20 extension. One window in upper part of original S wall is of a
type of which few examples survive, with all 3 diamond mullions in situ,
and intermediate holes in sill and lintel for stiffening bars for early
leaded glazing. Evidence of similar windows but with mullions missing in
lower S wall, lower N wall, and lower W wall of N bay. Sunk inside N of
original chimney an original oak framed cupboard, of which the door is
missing. Also in chimney, iron trammel with 3 hooks suspended on square iron
bar set in brickwork. Documentary evidence of a former house on this site
in a ruinous condition in 1580 confirms that this house was built soon
afterwards. (Eland, p. 126). RCHM 8.
