16.8.60 Jolliffe's Farmhouse
including attached


House C16 or earlier origin but most features are C17. Squared,
coursed rubble. Gable-ended tiled roof with end brick stacks. 2
storeys and attic. 4 window range. Ground floor has outer bays with
4-light ovolo moulded, stone mullioned windows. Centre right is a
similar 2-light window. Door centre left. Continuous string course
stepped up over window and door heads. The upper floor has 4 3-light
wooden mullioned moulded windows with leaded -lights. 2-light, stone
mullioned window at mezzanine level lighting a staircase. Interior
features: moulded (hollow chamfer and ogee) and deep chamfered ceiling
beams and wall plates, those to the south room intersecting to form
4-panel ceiling; many plank and muntin partitions; north room has
open fireplace with newel stair to one side; section of C17 balusters
and rail; smoke-blackened collar truss roof with 2 sets of purlins
and curved wind bracing. The roof appears to be older than the rest
of the house and may either have been reset or indicate a very
extensive C17 rebuilding. The attached barn is timber-framed and weather-
boarded with a half-hipped tiled roof and C20 casements. It has been
much modernised in the C20.
