7/1 Bourne Farmhouse
including outbuilding immediately
to north
Farmhouse. Early to mid C17 with C19 addition. Rendered cob walls. Gable ended
thatch roof. Brick stack at each gable end with 2 projecting rendered rubble
lateral stacks at rear.
Plan: 4-room and through-passage plan, passage is to right of centre with a small
room on its lower side whose stack is probably inserted. It is unclear which is the
hall as the 2 central rooms are both sizeable and heated by rear lateral stacks.
The higher, left-hand, one has a newel stair in a projection at the rear. The left-
hand end room has probably also had a stack inserted in the C19. Small C19 dairy
wing added behind right-hand end.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Long asymmetrical 6-window front. Ground floor has later C20
3 and 4-light casements. C19 3 and 4-light casements to first floor apart from that
to right of centre which is 4-light C17 ovolo moulded wooden mullion and 2 C20 2-
light casements to its right. C20 gabled glazed porch towards left-hand end and C20
plank door to passage towards right-hand end. Lower probably C19 outbuilding
attached at lower right end. Rear elevation has a rectangular stair projection to
right of centre and small C19 wing projecting from lower left-hand end of house.
Interior: plank and muntin screen at higher side of passage with ovolo moulded
muntins. The central room has a chamfered half beam at its lower end and on ovolo-
moulded cross beam with hollow step stops. C17 ovolo-moulded wooden doorframe at
rear to contemporary solid oak newel stairs. At lower end of left-hand room is a
plank and muntin screen with chamfered muntins. On the first floor at the lower end
of the house is a section of C17 baluster comprising heavy turned and moulded
balusters, similar newel post with tall ball finial and heavy handrail. Roof
trusses also probably C17 are substantial straight principals with threaded purlins.
To include small rectangular cob outbuilding immediately to north of farmhouse
across courtyard, now in derelict condition, but preserving a 3-light chamfered
wooden mullion window on the first floor of its rear wall.
This is an interesting example of a fairly complete single phase C17 farmhouse with
unusual 4-room plan and preserving some good quality features.
