4/66 Glebe Farmhouse

Farmhouse, formerly rectory, C16 with C18 and C19 additions and
alterations. Formerly timber framed, the external walling having been
now mostly replaced with brick walling of English garden wall bond and
Flemish bond, with a slate roof. Two storeys with attic. The
entrance front is of two builds; the portion to left is a slightly
projecting gabled wing with English garden wall bond brick replacing
timber framing. This has a projecting lean-to porch at ground floor
level with a plank door to the centre with strap hinges and nail-head
decoration. To the right of this is a C20 cross-window and to the
first floor is an C18 sash window of 4 x 6 panes with exposed sash
boxes. The gable has a queen-post truss with rendered infill. To
left of this is a 2-storey lean-to which has a 3-light C19 ground
floor window and a 2-light first floor C20 window. To left again is a
C19 lean-to with a 2-light C20 window. To the right is an C18 wing of
2 bays with stone quoins to the right hand corner and a band between
the floors of 2 bricks depth. Two first floor windows of 4 x 6 panes
with exposed sash boxes and one similar ground floor window at right.
The left hand ground floor window is of 2 casement lights. To the
attic are two 2-light gabled dormer windows. Chimney stacks at right
hand gable end and to the ridge of the left hand gabled wing. Rear:
Flemish bond brick at left and English garden wall bond brick at
right. To the right are two gable-ends indicating the medieval house
but this front has been given some uniformity in the C18 by the use of
ashlar quoins to both corners and the placing of a continuous band of
2 bricks depth between the ground and first floors. To the ground
floor are two 3-light and one 2-light cambered headed windows of C19
date and to the first floor at left are 2 sash windows of 4 x 6 panes
and to right are 2 cross windows.
Interior: To the ground floor one room has a panelled ceiling with
heavily moulded timbers dividing the ceiling into a series of
rectangular compartments with plaster infill. There is also in this
room a large 4-centered archway with blind tracery to the spandrels of
the camber-beam which rests on semi-octagonal brackets.
A further ground floor room has dado panelling with chair rail to the
lower walls and with a series of raised plaster panels to the upper
walls divided by wooden posts which rise to a wooden cornice. The
staircase is of 5 flights and C18 date with square newel-posts having
moulded caps, a moulded handrail and turned balusters.
To the first floor room is further small-framed walling with cambered
ceiling beams one of which bears traces of naive painting. There are
also two 4-centred doorways here which may have led to garderobes.
Chamfered purlins and wind-bracing to the roof.
