2/114 New Street Farmhouse

- II

Farmhouse. Mid and late C16. Part 2 storeys, part 2 scoreys and attics.
Timber-framed and rendered, with panels of C20 pargetting. Clay pantiled
roof. A C20 2-storey wing extends on the east side, and there is an extension
to the main range of the same date. C20 plain 2-light casement windows and
porch. The main range has a 3-cell form, with an internal chimney-stack, but
is not all of one build. The 2 central bays, which form a single large room
on the ground floor, are the oldest part of the house: studding exposed, and
evidence of original diamond mullioned windows on both floors; ceiling with
plain joists and main beam with chamfer and pyramid stops. Remains of long
arched braces to the tie-beams. Plain queen-post roof. The chimney-stack,
and the parlour on its south side, are an addition to these 2 bays replacing
an earlier section of the house. There is evidence of a doorhead with arched
spandrels in the wall immediately adjacent to the stack, which indicates a
former cross-entry. The parlour end has chamfered joists and main beams with
ogee-stops, and original upper ceilings. On the upper floor, 2 6-light
mullioned windows in situ, with cavetto moulding to the mullions. The roof
has unstepped butt purlins. The service area at the north end may well be
contemporary with the parlour. The house has associations with Nicholas
Danforth, who emigrated to America with his family in 1635. (See John Booth:
'The Home of Nicholas Danforth in Framlingham, Suffolk, England, in 1635',
published by the Framlingham Historical and Natural History Society, 1954.)
