STOKE ASH
TM 17 SW
1/73 Eastwick Farmhouse
-

-- II
Former farmhouse. In 2 sections: to east, part of a C15 house, now
considerably altered; at right angles to south is a mid C16 2-cell range.
Restored mid 1960's. Timber framed and plastered; main range is thatched, the
earlier wing glazed black pantiled. 2 storeys and attic and l½ storeys. 2
windows, 3 and 4-light casements with horizontal glazing bars. Small original
upper window has moulded mullions. Lobby entrance: gabled porch of
colourwashed brick with 6-panel door, the upper 4 panels glazed. Stack has
original axial shaft. Small thatched addition on north gable end. Earlier
wing has similar casement windows. Interior. Some good heavy studding in
main range, which has been carefully restored. North room on ground floor has
chamfered floorbeam and closely-spaced chamfered joists; there is a fine
original 5-light window, the mullions with roll and cavetto moulding. There is
a similar but slightly damaged window in the room above. South room has roll-
moulded floorbeam, the joists concealed. Original doorways into both rooms
with heavy shallow-arched heads. One upper room has a fine ceiling, all
components with a single roll moulding. The stack is an early C17 rebuilding,
slightly larger than the original. Pine newel stair to upper floor. Queen-
post roof. C15 work comprises service bay and most of lower bay of former
open hall: heavy studs, quite widely-spaced, with evidence for cross-entry
doorways. All but 2 of joists in service cell removed mid C20. Evidence for
square-headed service doorways with ogee-moulded surrounds. Inserted floor
has massive cross-beams and closely-spaced chamfered joists. Roof is C18 or
C19 replacement. Remainder of this range lost early C20. The existence of 2
substantial C15-C16 dwellings at right angles is unusual and it is likely that
one range was a unit house.
