4/57 White House Farmhouse


Former farmhouse, C16 in 2 stages with a range added at right angles in C18.
Originally of 3-cell plan. One storey with attics, the parlour block of 2
storeys. Timber-framed and plastered. Plaintiled roofs; an axial chimney
with shaft of C19 gault brick. Two gabled casement dormers in the lower
range. Mainly early and mid C20 small-pane casements. Framed and boarded C20
entrance door with two glazed panels; open flat-roofed porch. The lower range
towards the road is of mid C16; arch-braced studwork, with shutter rebates for
mullioned windows, and clasped-purlin roof. 3 bays remain; the western end
has an adapted truss in which cruck-formed knees support a collar-beam which
is probably the original tie-beam shortened. In c.1560-80, a parlour block
was added. This has good close-studding and blocked mullioned windows; the
mullion profile is unusually flattened, with rib-and-cavetto mouldings. An
open late C16 fireplace with a cambered lintel is in the hall.
