5/62 White House Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Late C16 and early C17. Timber-framed and plastered, with
pantiled roofs. 2 storeys and attics; L-shaped form. The main range has a 3-
cell form, with internal chimney-stack and cross-entry, later replaced by a
lobby entrance. The stack has 4 square attached shafts on a rectangular base
with a blank recessed panel. Old 3-light casement windows with transomes and
pintle hinges; one dormer, with an almost flat lead-covered roof, and another
in similar style in the wing. C19 gabled brick porch with pantiled roof and
narrow pointed windows at the sides. Plain timbering exposed inside; main
beams and joists with chamfer and lamb's tongue stops, posts with long jowls,
reversed braces at the corners. The upper ceilings are original. The
chimney-stack has 4 hearths: on the ground floor, one with a plain timber
lintel and moulded brick jambs, the other with a brick arch; on the first
floor, one with an unsually decorated cast-iron hob grate, the other with a
small 4-centred brick arch. The roof, in short bays, has one row of unstepped
butt purlins and one row of clasped, diminished principals and windbraces. A
stair-wing to the rear of the stack contains a wide Jacobean dog-leg stair to
the first floor with turned balusters and newels. The service area, still
unheated, is not divided into 2. The rear wing, which provided additional
service-rooms, is in 2½ bays with a brick gable-end incorporating a large
chimney-stack, which may replace an earlier smoke-bay. Plain beam-and-joist
ceiling to part. Newel stair beside the stack to the first floor and attic.
Roof with a curious mixture of butt and clasped treatment of the purlins (cf.
parts of North Green Farmhouse, Stoven, NMR report).
