4/90 Yewtree Farmhouse
Former farmhouse. Mid C16 with alterations of late C19 and mid C20. 1 storey
and attics. Possibly an open-hall house, with 2 surviving C16 cells. Timber-
framed and plastered. Thatched roof with C19 axial chimney of red brick, the
shaft having a diamond of gault brick on the side. C20 casement dormers.
C20 small-pane casements, and lean-to plaintiled entrance porch with boarded
door. The hall and service cells are quite complete, with fully-exposed
framing. A cambered tie-beam with cranked arch braces over the hall, with
possibly inserted 1st floor of heavy unchamfered joists. Close-studwork with
tension and arch wind-bracing. The rear gable was originally half-hipped and
has a blocked diamond-mullioned window. Large open fireplaces at upper end of
hall. The original coupled rafter roof remains over the service cell, but the
hall roof was renewed in C18. The lower C18 rear wing has many smoke-
blackened mediaeval rafters reused perhaps from the hall of this house. In
late C19 the parlour cell was added or rebuilt.
