-- II
Former farmhouse. C16-C17 core, much altered mid C19. A single long range.
Timber framed and rendered, C19 brick at gable ends. Shallow-pitched hipped
slated roof. 2 storeys. Front has continuous jetty with coved soffit. Mid
C19 large-paned tripartite sash windows, a range of 5 to upper floor
(excluding porch). 3 lower openings to right of porch are slatted. Altered
early C17 2-storey porch: jettied sides, old shaped brackets below eaves at
front. Mid C19 semi-circular entrance arch with raised springers and key;
flanking pilasters. Within the porch is a good early C17 moulded doorway with
large stops of an unusual bulbous form; original plank door with panelled and
studded face. Old bench seats in the porch have re-used C17 panelling behind.
Against rear wall to left is a late C16 stack with 3 offsets and the moulded
bases of 2 octagonal shafts. 2 internal stacks have plain C19 shifts.
Interior. Substantially unaltered since C19. C17 hall ceiling has plastered
and moulded cross beams and cornice. Other rooms have more simply- moulded
plasterwork. Much re-used C16-C17 panelling, especially in one lower room
which has 2 fluted Ionic pilasters and an overmantel with geometric panels,
all with C19 simulated graining. Panelling around the head of the stair has a
late C16 frieze with flowing foliage and beasts' heads. One upper fireplace
has a small C17 carved overmantel, another a stuccoed 3-centred arch.
Unmodernised service rooms to right of porch: some heavy C16 framing on upper
floor, oak stair against rear wall, several C16 doors. The name of the house
is a corruption of Braham's, after the family who once owned it.
