6/8 Chantry Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Late C16 and early-mid C17, in 2 phases. Timber framed,
roughcast-rendered. Pantiled roof, with glazed black tiles at the front. 2
storeys and attic. A 3-cell house extended to the right by 2 bays to form a
single long range. 4 windows, mainly C18-C19 mullion and transom casements of
4 lights, with a single horizontal glazing bar to each light. To the left a
doorway with C19 4-panel door (the upper panels glazed), moulded architrave
with corner roundels and a bowed frieze. Right hand doorway has a C19 6-panel
door, the upper 2 panels glazed. 2 internal stacks; external stack at right
gable end. Interior under renovation at time of survey with much of the
structure being exposed. A second stack has been inserted into the lower bay
of the hall, perhaps when the house was extended. In C19 the main stack of
the original range was removed to accommodate a stair and a smaller stack
built to replace it, just heating the parlour. Good studding, with reversed
braces to earlier work and straight corner braces at later end. Some original
windows, all with ovolo mullions. Most of the joists are square, but in the
service end of the original range they are set flat. Both roofs have clasped
and butt purlins, that over the earlier range of better quality. Moated
medieval site.
