7/48 The White House


House, formerly farmhouse; early C16, altered and extended mid C16 and C17. 3-
cell open-hall house; 2 storeys and attics. Timber-framed and rough-cast
rendered. Thatched roof, hipped at the left-hand end; eyebrow casement dormer;
axial chimney of red brick. Mainly C20 casements; a number of originally
unglazed diamond-mullioned windows. Gabled C20 asbestos-slated entrance porch
with boarded C19 door. An open-hall house of late type, with cross-passage
entrance formed within the service end. Probably-original chimney serves the
hall only; it backs onto the cross-passage. A crown-post roof with open truss
having cambered arch-braced tie-beam, the arch-braces springing from square
pilasters; the square crown-post has 4-way struts. Tension-braced close-
studded walls of good quality. First floor structure inserted into hall mid
C16. Attic floors inserted, and rear brewhouse wing with pantiled roof and
saw-tooth pattern chimney stack of red brick added, early C17. A good and
unusually complete example of the final phase of the mediaeval open-hall house.
