CROWFIELD STONE STREET
TM 15 NW
3/15 Street Farmhouse
Former farmhouse, early C15 or c.1400, with alterations of c.1600 and c.1980.
1 storey and attics; the 2-storey parlour block of c.1600 to right. 3-cell
plan with cross-entry. Timber-framed and rough-cast. Roman pantiled roof,
once thatched, an axial chimney of c.1600 red brick with a splayed pilaster
upon the front face. C20 gabled casement dormers. Wooden casements of c.1980
with leaded glazing, a c.1600 ovolo-mullioned window in the rear wall. A
central 2-bay C15 open hall: the open truss is entirely removed but its two
posts leave mortices for long arch-braces to the missing tie-beam, and the
remains of pilaster-shafts beneath them. A blocked 2-centred arched front
doorway and one mutilated 4-centred arched service room doorway (the altered
parlour doorway from the hall was also 4-centred and was screened by a spere).
Studwork of average spacing. Smoke-blackened roof believed to survive; it is
probably of coupled-rafter form. The remodelled service cell has some heavy
unchamfered floor joists and original roof. Circa 1600 an upper floor of
chamfered joists was inserted in the hall. Large hall fireplace with deep C16
lintel. Open fireplaces also in rebuilt parlour cell; close-studding and
clasped purlin roof. Major remodelling c.1980.
