FRESSINGFIELD BACK ROAD

10/14 Church Farmhouse
-
29.7.55
GV
II

Farmhouse. C16, in 2 phases, with C19 alterations. Timber framed and
plastered with a hipped roof of concrete plaintiles. Remains of old panelled
plasterwork at the rear. 2 storeys and attic. 5 windows, mainly large-paned
sashes in flush frames; herringbone-slatted windows to right hand bay and one
mid C20 casement window on the ground floor. 2 doorways, each with a 6-panel
fielded door, reeded pilasters, frieze and cornice. 2 internal stacks.
Victorianised interior with most of the timbers concealed. In the hall is the
upper part of a boldly-carved early C17 overmantel, almost certainly brought
from elsewhere: the elaborate design includes vine foliage, a central winged
figure and a cornice supported by 4 crouching figures. The hall has a moulded
cross-beamed ceiling; part of the original room has been lost through the
insertion of the stack. The soffit of one of the cross beams has been cased
with 3 sections of enriched Ionic pilasters of early C17 date. Some C17
panelled doors.
