1/304 Turkey House about 25m north
east of Park Farmhouse
Turkey house, part of the home farmstead of Somerhill, now part of the Hadlow
Estate. Probably circa 1850. Brick, the gables timber-framed; peg-tile roof.
Plan: Part of a designed Victorian farmstead with farmbuildings in a style to
match the Vernacular Revival house. The layout of the group is picturesquely
irregular and organized to look attractive as well as being functional. The
turkey house is sited north east of the farmhouse, roofed on an east west
axis, the rear elevation visible from the farm lane, which carries on past the
farmstead to the estate laundry. A small symmetrically planned building with
crosswings; central entrance, entrances to each crosswing.
Exterior: Single-storey. Symmetrical 4-window south front with left and
right gabled projections and a louvred ventilator with a hipped roof and
finial in the centre of the roof. The gables are framed with curved braces
and have pendants at the apex. 3 original plank and cover strip doors, one in
the centre, one to each gable. 4 2-light timber casements; 2 gabled dormers
with pendants. The rear elevation has matching gabled dormers and framed
gables to the crosswings.
Interior: Not inspected.
