TQ/15/NW (west side)
Home Farmhouse


Farmhouse, now house. c.1700, altered and enlarged. Brick, now painted white,
red tile roof. Shallow double-depth plan with large lean-to extension to the rear.
Two storeys and 3 bays, with cellar and attic; symmetrical; the central doorway
(up 6 steps protected by simple wrought-iron bar railings with handrails curved
outwards at the bottom) has a moulded cornice on brackets, a wooden doorcase,
and a pegged panelled door with 3 glazed panels at the top; on either side are 2
segmental-headed cellar windows (that immediately left of the steps now
blocked); and the windows on the principal floors are all 16-pane unhorned sashes
with exposed boxes, those at ground floor with segmental heads. The roof has 2
flat-roofed dormers with 2-light casements. Both gable walls have very large
external chimney stacks, that to the left with a sashed window inserted towards
the rear at ground floor, and that to the right with the gable-line of a granary
formerly attached at this end. The rear has inter alia some segmental-headed
windows, and a very obtrusive flat-roofed "dormer" rising from the eaves to the
right of the centre (over the head of the staircase). Interior: former entrance
hall between the 2 principal ground floor rooms, with a timber-framed partition
on the left, but the former partition on the right now removed; to the rear of
the right-hand room, a shallow former kitchen with a cross-corner fireplace, and
high in the rear wall 3 long timber pads of unknown purpose. Before removal of
part of the partition wall to the rear of the left room, the shallow space on this
side was divided between a small office in the rear corner, and the staircase;
this is doglegged, winding round a newel post, and has a closed string, turned
balusters, and moulded handrail Strap and H-L hinges on some doors; 4-room
cellar, 3 with barrel-vault ceilings; 2-span collar-rafter roof with some
carpenter's marks.
