4/164 Titmore Green Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Late medieval hall house, S wing c.1600, heightened and
floored late C17, renovated C19. Timber frame on plastered brick sill,
roughcast. Ground floor front cased in chequered red and blue brick.
Steep old red tile roofs. A 2-storeys H-plan house, set back from road,
facing E. 3 windows to each floor and entrance in angle with N wing.
Front carried up parapet between wings. C18 flush box sash windows with
6/6 panes to S wing, 6/3 above 6/6 to hall, and 3/3 to N wing. 8-panels
fielded door in wooden surround with fluted pilasters, full entablature
and triangular pediment. Rear lateral late C17 chimney to hall, 2
projecting chimney stacks on N side of N wing, large lateral chimney to
S wing. Projecting gabled stair turret at rear in line with entrance
door. Small 2-lights window over front door. Original house had service
bay at S end of open hall in a range with low eaves, and a 2-storeys N
crosswing jettied as a projection to the E. Projecting S cross-wing
formed by additions to the old S bay, c.1600. Alterations in late C17
involved heightening the old range, inserting a floor and rear sidewall
chimney and staircase, converting the service room to a kitchen and
providing new storage space in a narrower W extension of S wing. The
stair turret is sufficiently big to have also accommodated a dairy.
Parlour chimney built or rebuilt in C17 or C18, rear passage to W of
hall C19. (RCHM Typescript).
