Listing Text

TM 16 SW
5/141 Sycamore Farmhouse

-- II
Farmhouse. C15 core, enlarged in mid C16. Timber framed, roughcast-rendered,
pantiled roof. 2 storeys. 3 cells. 3 windows, late C19 2-light casements,
each light with 4 panes. Lobby entry with C20 semi-glazed door. Internal
stack, the shaft rebuilt 1980's. Later stack against left gable end.
Interior. Core comprises former open hall with a heavily sooted coupled-
rafter roof, not fully examined. At rear, a section of sooted wallplate and
part of open truss with massive tie beam; remainder of medieval framing
concealed. C16 hall ceiling, all components with a single roll moulding. C16
parlour end to left: main components of frame exposed on upper floor, with
reverse-curved braces in end wall. Parlour has good ceiling with a single
roll moulding to bridging beam and joists, and provision for an original
ladder stair at the rear; this ceiling is earlier and of better quality than
the inserted one in the hall. Between the present stack and the end of the
moulded parlour ceiling is a 2m. wide section of ceiling with much poorer
quality joists: this is likely to indicate the position of a previous chimney,
probably against the end wall of the medieval hall.
