3/118 Rookery Farmhouse
-

- II

Farmhouse. Late C16 and C17. L-shaped form: 2½ storeys to main range; 2
storeys to wing. Timber-framed and rendered; white brick to the south gable;
red brick to the north gable; colour-washed brick face to wing; C20
plaintiles. An internal chimney-stack with a large plain shaft of Tudor
brick. The main range has 3 irregularly-spaced 2-light small-paned casement
windows in flush frames to each storey, and a 4-panelled half-glazed door with
a small gabled porch roof over. On the rear wall, a door abutting on the
stack with the date 1778, and a small porch above. To the left of the stack a
2-bay room, with main cross-beams exposed, has been partitioned up, perhaps at
the time of the dated doorway; the beams are chamfered, and have stops with
bar. To the other side of the stack, a one-bay room with a main beam
similarly treated. One open fireplace with its original timber lintel. The
wing is now entirely a service area, but one 2-bay room at the east end is
late C16, and seems to antedate the front range.
