Immediately north and
west of Home Farm House
Byres, stabling, barn etc. Late C19; central gateway on north side by Crickmay and
Sons for H.C. Stephens M.P. Unknapped flint and chalk cob, with brick dressings
and plinths, roofs mostly early asbestos cement slates or double Roman clay tiles.
In form of quadrangle, open to south-east corner. Single-storey, with some lofts.
Principal range on north side has central gateway, the gable above timber framed
with diagonal brick nogging to lower panels and rendering over; 6 bays to either
side marked by brick piers, the roofs having raised centre sections for ventilation
and being crowned with ornamental tiles, with a bandof (original) patent glazing
on south side: projecting gable to north-east-corner with doorway and segmental-arched
left door over: on north west corner projects a lower chalk cob building with hipped
plain clay tiled roof, and a length of some 55 metres of cob walling,with sloped
tile capping,extends westwards. On south side of this north range, other than central
throughway, are several doorways; that in north-west corner an A-centre-arched moulded
doorway with framed and boarded door, having a 3-light mullioned store window without
label immediately east. East range in cob with double-Roman tiled roof, the central
portion raised with half-hipped roof, having a wide 3-centre-arched doorway above
which is a 9-light transomed casement under a band of weatherboarding: 3 bays to
each side of crosswing, the outer bays having matching casement windows of varying
widths and the centre bays doorways with fanlight over. The west range is of open
byres, with the roof in two sections; the north half set slightly higher, with collared
queen-post roof trusses and wind-braced frame, is covered with double Roman tiles,
the south section has similar framing but red asbestos cement slate coverings. South
range has raised floors on a flint and brick plinth, with plain collar-truss roofs
and timber boarded walls, with a brick-walled extension under a catslide roof on
the north side. Although the buildings may not be all of one date, they have obviously
been planned to vary materials and form so as to give an overall picturesque effect.
