3/36 Stradbroke Town Farm

- II

Farmhouse. Part C15, of 1½ storeys; part early C17, of 2 storeys and attics.
Timber-framed and rendered; thatched roof with decorated ridge. An internal
chimney-stack with a short plain red brick shaft, set within the higher C17
section of the house. 2 C20 3-light small-paned casement windows to the
ground floor; 2 eyebrow dormers and one old plain 3-light window to the upper
floor. End entry on the north-west, with a C20 enclosed gabled porch, and
beyond it, a single-storey C19 brick lean-to with hipped roof and clay
pantiles. Framing exposed inside: 4 bays. The 2 bays to the north west
originally formed the open hall of a medieval house with crown-post roof, and
the present entry is in the position of one of the cross-entry doorways. The
present ceiling to the ground floor was inserted in the late C16: one of the
main cross-beams is reused from an earlier part of the house and has housings
for studs and a diamond-mullioned window: the joists have an unusually large
chamfer and curved stops with bar. On the upper floor, tension braces to the
end wall. The tie-beam of the open truss has been cut through but the arched
braces remain; the crown-post has a double roll-moulding at the base and a
similar triple moulding at the cap, which is immediately below the present
upper ceiling level, so that the braces and the remainder of the roof-
structure are concealed. The C17 addition has good studding, and reversed
braces at the corners. Chamfer and run-off stops to the exposed ground floor
and upper ceilings, the latter original. Side purlin roof, mainly covered.
The chimney-stack has 2 back-to-back hearths on the ground floor with plain
timber lintels, and another lintel for an upper fireplace on the south east
side. The newel stair beside the stack winds right up to the attic and
retains its original treads.
