GREAT FINBOROUGH HIGH STREET GREEN
TM 05 NW

2/120 High Green Farmhouse
-
- II

Former farmhouse; c.1500, with alterations of C17 and c.1800. A 3-cell open
hall house. 2 storeys. Timber framed and plastered. Pantiled roof. C17
axial chimney of narrow red bricks. C19 small-pane casements. Early C19
entrance door with 6 fielded panels; open gabled porch on posts with Roman
pantiled roof and serpentine bargeboards. A modest but well-built open hall:
tension braced close studding, twin 4-centred arched service room doorways
(one restored), two diamond-mullioned windows in the parlour. The open truss
was removed from the hall in C19 but a part of the original roof remains, with
smoke-blackened rafters, within the higher C19 roof. In C17 a lintelled open
fireplace was inserted against the parlour cell; the lintel is reused from a
timber-framed chimney. The service cell was rebuilt in C17.
