- II*

Farmhouse. C14, extended C17. Timber-frame on a rubble base, painted
brick infil, plain tiled roof and brick stacks. Hall house with gabled
cross-wings to left and right and extended to the rear. Single storey
and attics in gables and half-dormers. 3 bays with 2- and 3-light case-
ment windows, some C20. Projecting porch off-centre at left. Rear (right)
wing is 2 storeys with a continuous moulded jetty to the first floor:
single C20 casement window and French door. Interior. The 2 bays Hall
retains all the C14 woodwork although a floor supported on stop-chamfered
and triple hollow and roll moulded beams, and a rubble stack have been
inserted. The central truss is an arch-braced base cruck decorated with
an ovolo-step-ovolo moulding: foiled raking struts and principal rafters
form a quatrefoil flanked by trefoils to the upper part: elaborately
moulded wall-plate. The lower bay incorporated the screens passage which
is divided off by a spere truss: the spere-posts are jowled and have
arch-braces with open spandrels and all timbers are ovolo moulded: the
upper part is similar to that of the central base-eruck truss. The remains
of a full cruck truss survive at the junction with the former service end:
the lower part was destroyed when the service end was remodelled. The
upper bay has an arch-braced collar-beam intermediate truss and cusped
windbraces. The dais end truss is a full cruck truss and has
2 finely carved trefoil headed panels on the upper floor. Rear (right) wing.
Winder stair. Ovolo moulded beams with run-out stops on ground floor.
Chamfered beams with broach stops on first floor: chamfered stone jambs
to fireplace and small doorway under a depressed head; jowled posts.
