SU 73 SW
5/11 Old Place Farmhouse


Manor house, now farmhouse. C17, C18, early and mid C19, with minor C20 changes.
Mixed walling materials, and a tile roof. A structure of many phases, with
substantial alterations at different times: massive joists and some timber
framing at each floor level suggest that it was a framed structure (at least
in its upper part), but most of the lower walls are of ashlar construction of
the early C17: there is refacing of the C18 and early C19, indicating many
changes in the pattern of openings; the present house is L-shaped. Plain roof.
The north elevation: 2 storeys and basement, 4 above 2 windows. The lower half
of the ground-floor wall is fine stonework (of large blocks) with a plinth, and
Jacobean moulded windows with mullions to the cellar; the upper walling is of
brickwork in Flemish bond with flat and cambered arches, 1st floor band, with
a section of refacing of the early C19, and indications of a regular arrange-
ment of 6 windows (to each floor), 8 former lights being now filled, 2 with
coursed flintwork. 4 upper early C19 sashes in exposed frames, one C20 casement,
and an early C19 French window. Doorway (C18) with a solid frame enclosing a
coupled fanlight, and a Victorian 4 Panelled door. East elevation: repeats
the pattern (including alterations) of the north elevation, but its north side
(ending in a gable) has several changes (with stone and brick quoins, flint and
malmstone walls) which escape interpretation: 3 upper sashes, one C20 casement,
and a large 1/2 octagonal bay, of flint and brick, with side sashes and a later
central chimney: 2 doorways, the older with a 6 panelled door. Within the
angle of the L-shape, the roof falls to the lower eaves of an outshot, with
modern details. The south gable is a large attached stack, of coursed flint with
brick dressings, and a large date 1742 is picked out in flintwork. Interior;
framing, and several sections of ashlar (external) walling, a large cellar
with mullioned windows, massive beams which demonstrate by their heights above
floor level that the house was always an important one. Extending from the
north-west corner is a fragment of thick flint walling, with the remains of
ashlar facing.
