3/40 Burkett's Farmhouse

- II

Former farmhouse. Mid and late C17. 2 storeys and attics. Timber-framed;
encased in later C19 red brick; clay pantiles. One internal and one end
chimney-stack, both with plain red brick shafts. 4 3-light C19 casement
windows with segmental arched heads to frames and surrounds. 2 large flat-
roofed C20 dormers. An enclosed and gabled half-glazed porch. All framing
exposed inside. The original house, in 5 bays, with a 3-cell plan and
internal stack, is unusual in having a 2-bay unheated room at the north end,
and a single-bay room on each side of the chimney stack; this arrangement is
continued on the upper floor. The upper ceilings, which are original, have
the joists set on edge. A 6-light diamond-mullioned window in each gable in
the attics, that on the south blocked by the late C17 2-bay extension to the
house, which provided an additional room on each of the floors, and is similar
to the main house in style. The roof, in 9 bays unrelated to wall bays, has
principals and slightly stepped butt purlins.
