TM 25 SE
(East side)
16/3/66 Park Farmhouse
(formerly listed as
Park House)

House, formerly farmhouse. C16 and C17 with C19 and C20 additions. Timber
framed with colourwashed render and brick facing with a plaintile and
pantile roof. Two storeys and single storey with attic. L-shaped plan.
Road front: Projecting C19 wing at right and at left of this the stub of
the C17 wing with, at left again and lower, the C16 wing. This latter has
two 3-light ground floor casements with cambered heads set in C19 walling
with two 2-light gabled dormer windows to the attic. Slightly to left of
this is a single storey addition which has a doorway at right and a
cambered-headed window at left. The C17 portion at right is almost
entirely masked by the C19 additions including, to the re-entrant angle, a
canted porch which has a 6-panel door, the lower 4 being raised and fielded
and the upper 2 glazed. The projecting C19 wing has to its gable end blank
ground floor walling and a first floor sash window of 3 x 4 panes with a
Tudor hood mould. The left hand flank of this wing has a glazed door at
right, a sash window of 3 x 4 panes at left and, to the first floor a blank
window at right and a sash window of 3 x 4 panes at left. The C17 portion
has a massive chimney stack with a rectangular base. Broaches rise from
this to the two octagonal bases of the circular shafts. These have fleurs
de lys and lily decoration to the moulded brick of their lower bodies and
the caps appear to have been renewed. The whole stack is very similar to
that of Catt's Hill Farm at Clopton (q.v). Right hand side: 2-storey flat-
roofed projection to left of centre to left of which is a bay window to the
ground floor with a hipped roof having 3 central lights and one to the
left. To left of this is a 3-light ground floor window, both these windows
having 4-centered heads to the lights. To the first floor at right is a
sash window of 3 x 4 panes and to the left a sash of 6 x 4 panes, having 1/2-
panes to the extremes. To right of the 2-storey C20 addition is a lean-to
with glazed walling with 6 lights to the ground floor and a pantile roof.
