4/25 High Green House

- II

Former farmhouse. Late C16. 2 storeys; formerly 2 storeys and attics.
Timber-framed and rendered, with remains of comb-patterned pargetting in
panels on the front; clay pantiles. An internal red brick chimney stack:
sawtooth shafts and corbelled heads on a square base. Random fenestration to
front: some mid C20 casement windows, and 3 small original 4-light windows
with ovolo-moulded mullions. On the rear wall, one upper window is a
reinstated 5-light oriel with ovolo-moulded mullions and small supporting
brackets; next to it on the right side, a 4-light original window similar to
those on the front. The interior has good quality, plain framing and ceilings
exposed. A join in the wallplates on the line of the stack indicates that the
house is of 2 builds, quite close in date, and the relation of the trusses to
the chimney-stack suggests that it is secondary, and may have been preceded by
a smoke-bay. Roof with clasped side purlins and no principal rafters. An
original diamond-mullioned window, in the apex of the gable on the north-west,
lighted the former attic. A C19 wing at the rear, rendered and pantiled, with
C20 fenestration and end chimney.
