4/83 Fengate Farmhouse
Former farmhouse, early or mid C16 with alterations of early C17 and c.1970.
Built as a late form of open-hall house, extended to south in C17 and to north
in C20. One storey and attics. Timber-framed and plastered. Pantiled roof,
thatched until C20, with 5 gabled casement dormers; some C19 and some C20.
Early C17 chimney of red brick with twin flattened hexagonal flues. C19 and
C20 small-pane casements. C20 hipped pantiled porch at lobby entrance
position with 2-panelled door. To left of chimney is a 2-bay cell with
formerly open hall - the head of a window is immediately above an inserted C17
floor structure which has bar-stopped chamfered main beams, and joists
chamfered in some areas but not in others. To right of the chimney is a 2-bay
C16 room with large unchamfered floor joists and close-studding. Blocked
diamond mullioned windows at 1st storey. The chimney was inserted together
with the upper floor in C17, and a further bay added at south end. Included
despite major repairs of c.1970, as an example of a small open-hall house
progressively extended over a long period.
