Cherry Tree Farmhouse
House. C15 or earlier, extended C16 to C17 and c.1880 to rear. Timber framed
and clad with weather boarding, with sections of red brick, and tile hung to
return upper elevations. Extended with red brick to rear. Plain tiled roofs.
Hall house, with cross-wings, extended to rear. Two storeys, with projecting
jettied wing to left, and returned, on dragon posts, with gabled roof, and
gabled wing to right. Stacks to rear, and clustered and moulded to centre
right. Three 3 light C19 mullioned and transomed windows on 1st floor and
single light to centre right over door. Two similar 3 light windows on ground
floor, and 3 light wooden casement to left. Door of 4 panels and glazed upper
panel to centre right with flat hood on brackets. C19 red brick and weather
boarded rear wing and outshot. Interior: the frame shows signs of much altera-
tion, especially in the roof, where at least 3 tie beams at the junction of hall
and jettied cross-wing have been successively placed above each other. Tie beam
and rafter roof throughout. Hall with brattished dais beam over vertical over-
lapping timber screen, quirk and tongue stopped chamfered ceiling beams and
large inglenook, round backed fireplace in right hand cross-wing, the upper room
of this wing with C17 wainscotting, with fluted overmantel surround and raised
panel, and early C17 door with moulded arcaded panels. Reputed to have come
from old Frittenden House (demolished late C19), although as likely to be
original to this building. Mullioned windows with shutter grooves remain,
especially in jettied parlour wing.
