2/58 White House Farmhouse


Former farmhouse. Early C17. Restored 1984-6. Timber framed, mid C20
panelled render; colourwashed brick gable end to left, probably of c.1700.
Pantiled roof. 2 storeys and attic. 2-cell form, a probable 3rd cell to left
now missing. Scattered fenestration, mullioned casements of c.1985, the main
windows with 4-centre arched heads to each light. C19 4-panel door. 2 gabled
dormers of c.1985. External stacks at each gable end, that to the right of
C19 date. Full-height studding exposed internally, mostly intact; reverse-
curved braces. Trimming for many original windows and mortices for diamond
mullions in right cell (service end). There is no evidence for studding at
the left gable end, indicating the house must once have continued beyond.
Plain joists set flat to all floors. Cambered tie beam in cross-partition.
Clasped-purlin roof with incomplete wind bracing.
