4/78 Home Farmhouse


Former farmhouse. Late C16/early C17. 2 storeys and attics; 3-cell form to
main part. Timber-framed and rendered; thatched roof with decorated ridge and
eaves. An internal chimney-stack has 4 square shafts with attached heads on a
rectangular base with a recessed blank panel. 2 4-light windows to each
floor, one 3-light to the upper floor and one 2-light to the ground floor, all
casements with transomes. In the north gable wall an original 6-light window
and a smaller secondary window, both with diamond mullions. C20 plank door
with shaped head and timber jambs. Although now of internal chimney and
cross-entry form, the house is not all of one date: at the south end, where a
small wing extends at the rear, there are indications of earlier framing, and
at the north end a difference in ceiling-heights. At the south end, an
exposed ceiling with ovolo-moulded main beam and plain joists; ovolo-moulding
also to mullions on the upper floor. Widely-spaced studding and arched
braces; original upper ceilings; open fireplaces with plain lintels to the
ground floor; 2 upper fireplaces, with rounded backs and brick arches, have
traces of red ochre colouring and lining. Various sections of panelling, some
plank-and-muntin and some with square panels, have been reused to make a
corridor on the upper floor. Side purlin roof with windbraces. A lean-to at
the rear contains a modern stair, and a small C18 1½-storey wing at the north
end, in red brick over timber-framing, with clay pantiles and a later end
chimney-stack, contains the present kitchen.
