1/10 The Old House

- II

Former farmhouse. C16, with later extensions. 2 storeys; 3-cell form.
Timber-framed and rendered, with a hipped plaintiled roof. An internal
chimney-stack with a plain red brick shaft. 3 Edwardian mullion-and transome
type 3-light windows to the ground storey; 3 3-light casement windows with a
single bar to lights on upper storey. An off-centre entrance door within a
C20 enclosed, flat-roofed porch. Inside, the central bays, to the left of the
chimney-stack, have a heavy exposed ceiling with cross-beams and joists with
an ogee-type moulding. Adjoining this section is a separately-framed,
apparently later, bay, of plain, rather poor, joists. The left side of the
stack has a large open fireplace, with a plain timber lintel over. Along the
rear, a mid-C19 2-storey range, separately roofed, has been added to form a
double house. This range, in rubble flint with red brick dressings, has a
hipped roof of black glazed pantiles, with a wide eaves overhang; 2-light and
3-light casement windows, with arched heads to surrounds on the ground storey.
