TM 16 SW
2/133 Nos. 1 and 2 College
- Farmhouse
- II

Former farmhouse, now divided into 2 dwellings. Circa 1550-1570. 2 storeys.
3-cell cross-passage entrance plan. Timber-framed and plastered. Roman
pantiled roof, once thatched; axial C16/C17 chimney of red brick. Mid C20
small-pane casements and glazed panelled entrance doors. A good and complete
example: all 3 cells have (unusually) roll-moulded 1st floor joists, and in
the hall and parlour are also double-ogee moulded bridging joists (c.p.
Larters, Middlewood Green, Earl Stonham, Item 1/110). A pair of service room
doorways, one retaining its 4-centred arched head; the parlour doorway is
similar. The parlour chamber has an open truss with an arch-braced collar
beam instead of the normal tie-beam. Close-studding with tension stud-
bracing. Good wind-braced clasped purlin roof. Wide open fireplace in hall
with cambered lintel.
