Shade Oak Farmhouse



Farmhouse. Probably early C17, extended late Cl7 with later additions
and alterations. Timber-framed with painted brick infill, largely clad
in C20 brick painted black and white in imitation of timber frame to
front and rendered to rear. Slate roofs. Earliest part is gabled
range to left, extended to right in later C17. Two storeys and attics.
Framing: only framing visible to front is to centre and right gables;
collar and tie beam trusses with upper collars and painted V-struts,
boxed double-purlin ends. Remainder of front brick, painted in imitation
of timber frame. Left return of left range has continuous jetty with
moulded bressumer supported on four carved brackets; rendered plinth and
some rendered infill. Two narrow rectangular panels on each floor with
straight tension braces to corners. Timber frame said to survive beneath
render to rear. 1:1:1 windows, all C20 double sashes (those to ground
floor segmental-headed) except small C19 casements to attics, right blind
and painted in imitation. Central C20 half-glazed door with narrow
flanking sashes. Prominent red brick ridge stack to left of main range
and right gable has 2 prominent external lateral stacks with tall red
brick shafts, right with date stone "F/RS/1763". C20 lean-to porch between
stacks and double side-hung casement above with H-hinges. Four gables
to rear, 2 to left projecting (right with external end stack) and 2 to
right (right with prominent external end stack). Right of left gables
has outshut to right and C19 single-storey brick outbuilding projecting
from junction of 2 left gables has reused nail-studded plank door with
pointed strap hinges.

INTERIOR. Left gabled range has panelled wooden
overmantel to brick fireplace beneath ridge stack. Two tapering Ionic
pilasters to sides with blind round-headed arches to lintel; centre
panel has superscription "FF IF 1659". Deep-chamfered cross and spine
beams and oak wainscot panelling. Formerly divided into two rooms.
Traces of possible former smoke-hood to other side of stack in main range;
chamfered spine beams are jointed with an iron plate at point to which
canopy may formerly have extended. C18 staircase behind door has turned
balusters and moulded handrail. Chamfered ceiling beams to first-floor
rooms, which like attic have wide boarded oak floor boards. Semi-circular
plaster ceiling to rear room of right gabled range. Oak winder staircase
leads to attic which has timber frame (some with herringbone brick infill)
visible beneath C20 brickwork. Right gabled range has collar and tie
beam roof in two wide bays with V-struts from collars and extra collar
inserted to give added strength and an extra bay. Similar roof structure
to other ranges. Cellar has part regularly coursed and dressed red
sandstone and part brick walls, part under left gabled range with barrel
vault. Cobbled floors. The overmantel is said to be almost identical
to that at Old Hall, Lee (q.v. under Ellesmere Rural). Lean-to to rear
of right gabled range and mid-C20 flat-roofed addition to rear of left
gabled range are not of special architectural interest. B.o.E. pp.
111, 164.
