Listing Text

11/2 Rookwood (formerly
7.2.52 listed as Rookwood Farmhouse)
House. Norman hall, with late medieval and C16 timber framed extensions and
some features, wing of c1820 with some recladding and features, and minor C20
addition and features. The walls (4 feet thick) of the old part are mainly of flint
and rubble stone, with chalkstone inner face, with stone dressings; a flat buttress,
two Norman arches, minor brickwork repairs and tile-hung west gable: exposed
framework to the later part with brick infill, some brick walls of English and
Flemish Garden Wall bonds, and rendered C19 wing. Tile roof, the small service
wing has a hip, extended to a low eaves. A two-storeyed building with irregular
fenestration. The 'first-floor' hall has on its south face a flat corner
buttress and an arched window with a cill indicating that a mullion existed, now
partly-filled and containing a C20 window. The north face has an arched opening,
now a window. The complete north elevation of the old part has other windows
with brick quoins (one with a C16 moulding). There are three early C19 sashes
(two on the east one on the south side) otherwise all windows are casements, in
some variety. Inside, the massive fireplace in the old part is a late C16
insertion, chalkstone jambs are exposed at window and former doorway openings:
the eastern part has an interior timber-framed section of earlier date than the
present external timber-framed wall, with a chimney attached to its outside
(now within) and an original window with diagonal oak mullions: the inner
wall of the outer frames has an oak moulded casement (C16). The narrow west
service wing is timber-framed within, with brick outer walls.
