Listing Text

(South Branch, South-West Side)
Ricebridge Farmhouse
[formerly listed as
Ricebridge Cottages
(Nos 1 and 2), Reigate Heath]
TQ 24 NW 25/66 19.10.51.


Interesting early C17 house at time of transition from the Elizabethan H- or U-plan
to the Jacobean flat-fronted, gabled facade. The roof plan is H-shaped, the facade
flat with twin gables. Exposed timber-framing behind but a fashionable red brick
front in a bond which alternates a straight stretcher course with a header-and-stretcher
course: strong but primitive. Fairly high pitched tiled roofs, original bargeboards.
2 storeys and attic, 2 windows. Bands at both floor levels, stepped up over windows.
Flat gauged brick 1st floor window arches; 4-centred relieving arches below.
Raised brick borders to blank round panels in gables. 2 small windows near centre
blocked soon after building. 2 plain boarded doors. Roof is stone-flagged on
rear elevation. Small brick and stone cellar possibly later. Box edged formal
garden in front looks coeval with house. Interior shows 2 bays of an open hall
with a smoke bay.
