Timber-framed farmhouse built by Richard Smalbroke in the last quarter of
the C16 and subsequently added to. The ground floor with vertical studding;
the upper storey jettied on huge brackets at the corners and with short diagonal
struts to produce a herringbone pattern; tiled roof. Two storeys except
the gabled crosswing on the left which has an attic storey in the gable which
has square panels with quadrant braces to produce a lozenge pattern. Windows
with leaded lights, 2, 3 even 4 mullions and, some of them, transoms
too. The house seems from the beginning to have been ceiled at first floor
level. A gabled stair turret in the angle between hall and crosswing balances
the porch. This is also gabled and has the inscription OMN(1)P OTENS D(EUS)
P(RO)TECTOR SIT DOM(US) HUI(US) RS. To the right, an C18 brick addition.
To the rear, a mid C17 kitchen wing of painted brick. Inside the house,
an upstairs room with a wall painting of circa 1600.
