ST. OSYTH PARK CHASE
TM 11 NW
6/169 Park Farmhouse
GV II
House. Probably C14/C15 with later alterations and early C20 rear wing. Timber
framed and rough rendered, painted brick to ground floor. Red plain tiled roof,
hipped with gablets. Left and right red brick chimney stacks. The ground floor
brick facing suggests the house was originally jettied. 2 storeys. 4 small
paned vertically sliding sashes to first floor, 3 ground floor tripartite small
paned sliding sashes, keystones to arches. Off centre porch with flat head
supported by Ionic columns. Fluted surround to door, ornate tracery to
semi-circular light over. C20 decorations cover most of the timber frame, but
some blocked mullion windows are visible, ceiling beams and huge bridging joists
and a very large square section arched brace to tie beam, this probably supports
a crown post. Part of roof visible at time of re-survey is of crown post type,
with large unsooted timbers and collars to each rafter pair. A painted panel
from a first floor room was removed to Colchester Museum, and other wall
paintings are now carefully covered by board and paper. There are 2 arched
doorways in this room. RCHM 14.
