TM 26 SE FRAMLINGHAM VICTORIA MILL ROAD
2/128 Red House Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C16 and late C17, with later alterations. 2 storeys and attics to
main range, which is encased in C18 red brick in a somewhat irregular bond,
parts with dark headers; plain brick band; moulded brick cornice; plaintiled
roof; possibly an earlier timber-framed core. 5 cross windows; 2 6-panelled
doors with raised fielded panels. A C16 2-storey wing in 4 irregular bays, at
right-angles to the main range, is timber-framed and rendered, with a later
brick gable, incorporating a chimney-stack, on the south. 3-light and 4-light
casement windows, mainly C20 replacements. The interior of this range is of
considerable interest, although few original timbers are visible on the ground
floor. On the upper floor there was a 3-bay room at the south end with 2 open
trusses; cambered tie-beams and long arched braces in situ, and the remains of
4 original windows with diamond mullions, one in the gable-end preceding the
chimney-stack there. The roof over the 2 southernmost bays was replaced in
the later C17, and has one row of butt and one row of clasped purlins with
windbraces; the remainder of the roof is as original, with the principal
rafters numbered, clasped purlins and windbraces. There are distinct signs of
smoke-blackening on the original timbers, and in the 3rd bay of the large
upper room, now partitioned-off, there appears to have been a smoke-bay or
plaster flue: 2 pairs of rafters are neatly cut off below the apex, apparently
an original feature, to allow for a smoke outlet.
