9-12-55 listed as Pip's Farmhouse)
Former farmhouse. Late C16 and C17, in 3 phases. Alterations of mid C19.
Timber-framed; arch wind-braced studding largely exposed and blackened with
plaster infill panels. A 2-storey C19 outshut along the front wall is in
painted brick. Plaintiled roofs with 2 axial chimneys of red brick. 3-cell
cross-entry plan. 2 storeys. Small-pane casements, mainly of C19. On the
garden side are some original windows unblocked and glazed, with diamond and
ovolo-moulded mullions. A 2-storey C17 entrance porch, at the cross-entry
position, has the upper wall framing exposed; the moulded head of an original
oriel survives above the entrance. C19 4-panelled door. A 2-cell C17
bakehouse-with-dairy is set forward to left. It was detached until C19, and
has a little C18 cable-pattern pargetting. The hall and service cell of the
house is the earliest phase, with plain framing; there is evidence for a rear
cross-entry doorway with shallow arched head. The parlour block, of higher
quality was added soon afterwards; the parlour has an ovolo moulded bridging
joist. A further wing was added to rear of service end later in C17.
