TM 17 NE
2/76 Fairstead Farmhouse
Farmhouse, now subdivided into 2 dwellings. An early C17 rebuilding of an
early C16 house. Restored 1983-5. Timber framed and roughcast-rendered under
a slated roof. 2 storeys and attics. A single long 4-cell range. Continuous
jetty to south, supported on plain brackets; the bracket at the east end is
carved with leaf and flower motifs in the spandrel. Within the porch, one
buttress-shaft and part of the moulded bressummer are visible. C19 casement
windows with a single horizontal glazing bar to each light. To east, leading
into the cross-passage, is a single storey mid C17 gabled porch, now without a
doorway. To west is a C19 doorway with moulded architrave, 4-panel door and
narrow oblong overlight. 2 gabled full dormers. Internal stack with rendered
shaft; late C17 stack against west gable end. C19 brick addition to east; C18
rear (north) lean-to. All 4 ground floor rooms have axial bridging beams and
chamfered joists set flat. Some plain C17 first floor studding. Porch has
one blocked 8-light mullioned window and evidence for another in the gable
end; the entrance was on the east side. The roof over the west half of the
range is re-used, evidently from a narrower range as there are scarf joints at
the lower ends of all the principal rafters. It is in 4 1/2 bays, with 2 rows
of butt purlins and collars carrying oblong king-posts to a ridge piece. One
truss has long curved collar braces, meeting at the centre. Evidence for
cross partitions, redundant when the roof was re-used; the existing partition
is unrelated to the roof structure. Upper floor and roof of east half of
range not examined.
