5/94 Crowbourne Farmhouse and
House. C16 and extended C18, refronted 1892/3. Timber framed and clad with red
brick and tile hung, and extended with red brick and tile hanging. Plain tiled
roof. Front elevation: late C19, 2 storeys with 2 projecting gabled bays, and
stacks at end left and end right. Tripartite sashes on each floor of bays, with
central first floor sash and rib and stud door in central raking porch. Half-
hipped rear range, 2 storeys and garret, with stack cluster to centre left, and
stack to end right. Casements to right return, sashes to left return. Half-
hipped wings projecting to rear, and linked by single storey passageway to hipped
outhouse. Interior: the central range preserves its full frame, with stop-
chamfered beams and diamond-set mullioned windows now to interior walls. Unusual
range of C18 cupboards in rear wing on segmentally arched brick base. The out-
house attached to the rear, weather-boarded on red and blue brick base with
steeply pitched hipped roof, gablets and stack to left. Interior: fully framed
building with arched braced gunstock-posts and clasped purlin roof, with inserted
copper and bread oven. The frame is certainly C16 at least in origin, although
altered, and may be an originally detached kitchen building.
