TM 05 SE
2/38 Stone Farm House
- II
House, formerly farmhouse. C15 or early C16 core with major alterations,
principally of c.1600 but of several other periods also. 2 storeys, partly
with attics. Timber-framed and rough-cast; much of the ground storey walling
is under-built in C19 red brickwork. Plaintiled roofs with a gabled
plaintiled casement dormer. Axial C17 chimney of red brick with a saw-tooth
pattern shaft, cappea in C19. C20 small-pane casements. A C19 single-storey
gabled entrance porch at the lobby-entrance position with glazed panelled
door. A residual open hall forms the nucleus of the house; its lightly-
blackened coupled-rafter roof is almost complete. A single post, formerly
shafted, marks the position of the missing open truss. In c.1600 major
alterations were made: a large chimney was inserted near the cross-passage,
and a fine 1st floor structure added to the hall. It has ovolo mouldings to
the bridging joist and to the common joists, which have stepped stops enriched
in an unusual manner. The earlier service end was rebuilt in the form of a
cross-wing with clasped-purlin roof. An arch-braced open truss of C16 type in
the block beyond the cross-wing is probably the vestige of a much altered C16
service range. A single-storey dairy wing was added to rear in C17. In the
parlour is a corner cupboard of c.1800 with rustic enrichment.
