4/38 High House Farmhouse
- II
Farmhouse. Circa 1600, possibly incorporating earlier work at service end.
Timber framed, the facade cased in early C19 red brick; the gable ends and
rear are a combination of cement render, common brick casing and metal
cladding. Roof has clay pantiles at front and interlocking concrete tiles at
the rear. 2 storeys and attic. 3-cell, lobby entry type. 3 windows, mainly
large-paned mid C20 casements under segmental arches; one 4-paned sash window
of c.1900. Mid C20 door with semi-circular plastered panel over, probably
once a fanlight. Internal stack, the base of the shaft rendered. External
stack against right gable end, now mostly rebuilt. Good interior. Hall has
close-studded rear wall; a large original window, now blocked, has 6 ovolo
mullions. Axial bridging beam with ovolo moulding and recessed soffit; plain
joists. Open fireplace with cambered lintol. The parlour was originally
unheated (an unusual arrangement); there is exposed studding with a further
blocked window and an ovolo axial bridging beam; the joists are concealed.
Further studding on upper floor, the parlour chamber with tie beam encased in
C17 plasterwork. Service end has mostly on-edge joists; a heavy mid rail is
about 0.3m below ceiling level. The floorbeam shows evidence for an axial
partition. Some good early doors. Roof not examined.
