Listing Text


723-1/4/511 (South side)
07/06/89 Sabines Farm
(Formerly Listed as:
Sabines Farmhouse)


House. Early C16. Timber-framed. 4 bays, central 2-bayed open
hall (sooted), storeyed high and low end bays.
INTERIOR: remnants of crown post roof. Service doorframes,
moulded (cyma, return, hollow chamfer). Hall central truss
posts originally with deep central fillet. Framing of heavy,
close studding, 18 inches (0.5m) between centres, braced with
external arched braces. Evidence in outer frame for the site
of 2 large hall windows and ground-floor windows in the
storeyed ends, also site of cross entry doors. The E end frame
preserves evidence of interrupted tie-beam framing to support
a half hip gable. Hipping also implied in upper gable detail.
Soot distribution suggests that smoke from the hall was vented
through an end gablet. The eastern end frame also has joints
for both upper and lower mullioned windows, the upper having a
king mullion and a pair of sliding shutter grooves. The lower
smaller window has a single shutter groove. In the C17 the
larger upper bay of the hall was floored at half height with
deep section joists probably linked to a contemporary stack.
The present chimney-stack is C18 or C19 and is smaller than
the normal C17 type but contains some bricks which may be from
an earlier C17 one. Recent renovations include the almost
complete renewal of the western service bay and the rest of
the house frame has also been considerably replaced, however
the E bay is the best preserved. Extensions are being added to
the S rear face and a new porch added to the N front. It is to
be weatherboarded and peg-tiled.
