2/6 Perry Green Farmhouse


House. C16, altered in C18 and C20. Timber framed, roughcast rendered, roofed
with handmade red plain tiles. 3-bay main range facing S, with internal stack
at right end against front wall, and C18/19 external stack at left end. 2-bay
crosswing to right, re-roofed in C18/19 to align with main range. 2 parallel
wings to rear, C18/19 and early C20. Single-storey extensions in rear left and
rear right angles, forming catslides with the main block. Single-storey
extension to rear left with pantiled roof. 2 storeys. 4-window range of C19
and C20 casements. C20 door. Gablet hip at left end of main roof. The roof
ridge to right of the main stack is slightly higher than that to the left. The
main range and crosswing are structurally separate, but both of the early to
mid-C16, with jowled posts and heavy studding. The main range has a chamfered
transverse beam with step stops, and to left of it a similar axial beam, both
originally studded to form twin service rooms, but with the internal studs now
removed. The service end is exceptionally long. To the right is a chamfered
axial beam; the joists are plastered to the soffits. Large wood-burning hearth
facing to left, mainly of C16 brickwork, but renewed below the level of the
mantel beam. Crownpost roof complete, with an unusually heavy collar-purlin
with an edge-halved and bridled scarf, and thin axial braces. The crosswing has
diamond mortices for unglazed windows in the right wall, with a shutter groove
in the lower storey, no shutter groove above. Floor joists from this wing have
been removed, and re-used to form an open partition in the left bay of the main
range, exposing the jointing, soffit tenon with diminished haunch, in the
binding beam. Roof rebuilt above tiebeam level. RCHM 2.
