3/13 Garden store, 10 metres
- north of Villa Farmhouse

- II

Garage and garden store. Built early C16 as a 2-cell open-hall house. Timber
framed, weather-boarded at front and plastered at rear; underbuilt C18 and C19
in red brick at both ends. Plaintiled roof (pantiled at rear), half-hipped at
the left-hand service end. Various C19 and C20 windows and pair of boarded
garage doors. The 2-bay hall remains open to the rafters; the central open
truss has an arch-braced uncambered tie-beam, square crown-post with 2-way
arch-bracing, and moderate smoke encrustation from the open hearth. At the
left-hand end is a single room with lodged upper floor. The tie-beam at the
external wall is interrupted for a small 4-light diamond-mullioned window
under the eaves (now blocked), which originally lit the attic. There may have
been a further 2-storey cell to right of the open hall. Much of the studwork
in the external walls was replaced in C18, but otherwise the structure has
been little altered since the C16. This survival is probably due to its early
replacement by a larger house to which it then became an outbuilding, perhaps
a bakehouse or brewhouse.
