3/36 White House Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Early C17. 2 storeys and attics; 2-cell plan. Timber-framed and
rendered, with C20 single roman tiles. An internal chimney stack with 4
attached diagonally-set shafts on a square base in a mixture of small red and
yellow bricks. 2 old 4-light casements with transomes to the upper storey,
and 2 3-light C20 casement windows with a single bar to lights on the ground
floor, replacing older windows in the same style. Central entrance door with
4 applied panels, panelled pilasters, and entablature with console brackets.
Main beams only exposed on the ground floor. 2 open fireplaces, with plain
timber lintels, one with a rounded back to the hearth; on the upper floor, one
fireplace with an early C19 cast iron hob grate. Original upper ceilings
exposed: cambered tie-beams, joists with chamfer and run-off stops. Blocked
original windows; reversed braces at the corners. Original ladder stair to
attic. Roof with full principal rafters cut away for the insertion of clasped
side purlins, a lower row of unstepped butt purlins and cranked windbraces. A
1½ storey lean-to addition along the rear, with colour-washed brick walling,
contains ceilings of reused timber, and has led to some rearrangement of
layout in the main part of the house.
