UPPER HEYFORD HIGH STREET
SP42NE (South side)
2/145 Two Trees Farmhouse and
attached farmbuildings
GV II

Farmhouse now house. Probably C17 and early C18, altered and partly re-modelled
mid C19. Limestone rubble, partly squared and coursed, with some ashlar
dressings; plain-tile roof with rubble-and-brick stacks. 4-unit plan. 2 storeys
plus attic. Right half of 6-window front is probably C17 at ground floor and
early C19 above; it has 12-pane sashes at first floor and 2 further sashes, one
4 panes wide, spaced irregularly below, all with ashlar flat arches with
projecting keyblocks. The 3-window section to left is in squared rubble and has
regularly-arranged 12-pane sashes, also with projecting keyblocks; the doorway,
now sheltered by a late-C19 stone porch with a Tudor-arched entrance, is set to
right of the windows below a recessed datestone inscribed "18 A 39/EE/1722" (the
later date an addition). The roof, which has a gable stack to right plus
rubble-based stacks flanking the C18 section, continues to left over a rubble
section, formerly a granary, which has a doorway to the front. A lower barn
range to left has a corrugated-asbestos roof and has an old plank doorway with a
curved head. The rear of the house has further sashes and C20 dormers, the
granary section has an external stone stair, and the barn range has large double
doors. Interior: Earlier section of house has massive chamfered beams and very
thick walls at ground floor; C18 range has a stop-chamfered beam, and a fine
open-well stair, rising to the attics, with turned balusters, moulded closed
string and moulded square handrail (probably contemporary but possibly slightly
earlier). Both sections have butt-purlin roofs with through tenons. Barn has a
4-bay roof, one truss of which is probably early C17 or older and has the
principals tenoned into a heavy saddle plus mortices for windbraces and trenches
for purlins.
