2/143 Sandhurst Farnhouse
House. Circa 1500, clad C19 and refenestrated late C20. Timber framed and clad with
red and blue brick in English bond on ground floor witb sandstone base and with
weather boarded first floor. Plain tiled roof. Four framed bay through-passage plan.
Two storeys and basement on plinth with continuous jetty on beam ends and hipped
roof with rebuilt stack to centre right. Four 3 light wooden casements on first
floor and 3 on ground floor with segmental heads, with boarded door to centre left
and glazed doors to right. C20 lean-to outshot at right with wooden casements and
boarded door. Basement openings to left return and large sandstone base to rear
elevation. Interior: crown post roof with moulded octagonal main post and crown
post trusses elsewhere with massive arched braces, the bracing and collar purlins
set eccentrically. The lack of soot blackening and the apparantly although not
conclusively original continuous jetty, suggest that, despite the moulded crown post,
this was not a hall house. The stack (of stone) and fireplaces are also early, with
four centred arched and wave moulded stone and wooden surrounds. Four centred
arched main door frame with hollowed spandrels survives, as do frame and jambs of
2 service doorways over basement end.
