TM 26 SE FRAMLINGHAM BRABLING GREEN
2/13 White House Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Mid C16. 2 storeys and attics; 3-cell plan. Timber-framed,
plastered and lined; red brick gable on west; on the east, a single storey red
brick bay with a moulded plaster cornice extending from the gable wall. An
internal chimney stack with a plain red brick shaft. Various casement and
sash windows. C20 porch and door. Timbers exposed inside: basic 5-bay
internal chimney and cross-entry form, altered, probably in the later C17, by
the extension of the service end of the house. The parlour, at the east end,
has ogee-moulded joists, a fireplace with arched brick surround, and evidence
for diamond mullioned windows. The 2-bay hall has similar moulded joists with
a plain chamfered main beam. It has been suggested that the joists are
reused, but in spite of some slight discrepancies they do seem to fit their
present positions. The service-end partition, somewhat fragmentary, is still
in position, with evidence for 2 doorways, but the cross-entry has been
shifted over into the enlarged service area, which also contains a straight
flight of stairs with solid treads across the width of the house. The upper
floor has the remains of several more blocked diamond mullioned windows,
shaped post-heads with arched braces removed, and reversed braces at the
angles. An original fireplace in the room above the parlour. Side purlin
