2/3 Pear Tree Farmhouse

- II

Farmhouse. Mid C16, with older fragments. 2 storeys. Timber-framed and
roughcast; black glazed pantiles. Now an internal chimney and cross-entry
form; the stack has a plain red brick shaft rebuilt in Tudor bricks with a
corbelled top. Old 2-light and 3-light casement windows, those on the ground
floor with transomes. 2 doors under matching C19 gabled porch roofs. To the
left of the stack the upper window is at a lower level than the others on the
upper floor: this part of the house had a lower original wallplate, raised
when the rest of the house was built, and is probably medieval, although most
of the timbers have been renewed. The remainder of the house, consisting of a
2-bay hall and 2 service rooms, with a cross-entry between, has very good
timbering: an enormous chamfered main beam has curved stops with bar;
chamfered and stopped joists; damaged roll-moulding on post-heads. One
original service doorway remains, square-headed, with chamfered jambs. A C17
2-bay kitchen extension behind the cross entry.
