EARL STONHAM FEN LANE
TM 05 NE
4/98 Fen House
-
- II

Former farmhouse. Late C15 or early C16, altered and extended C20. A 3-cell
open hall house. 2 storeys. Timber-framed and plastered. Hipped thatched
roof with axial chimney of red brick. Mainly late C20 casements. Thatched
gabled C20 entrance porch with boarded door. A substantially-built and
relatively unaltered late-mediaeval house. The open hall is in two bays, the
open truss having a cambered tie-beam, with massive chamfered arch-braces
springing from pilasters rising from floor level (one brace is missing).
Tension-braced close studwork and heavy unchamfered joists. Good complete
smoke-blackened coupled-rafter roof. In late C16/early C17 a chimney was
placed in the cross entry and an upper floor of chamfered joists inserted into
the hall; the service rooms were united, and the house functionally "reversed"
- the service accommodation being placed at the right-hand end. The rear wing
to right is a C20 extension, possibly remodelling a pre-existing structure.
