5/56 Red House


Former farmhouse. Early C18, enlarged in the early C19. 2 storeys and
attics; irregular form. Red brick, but part probably with a timber-framed
core; plaintiles. Several internal chimney-stacks with plain red brick
shafts. Most windows are 3-light early C19 casements with transome, segmental 1
arched heads to frames and surrounds, and square-leaded panes; some mid-C20
replacements in matching style. 6-panelled entrance door. One brick on the
south (garden) front is dated 1808, which may be the date when the house was
extended. The older part of the building, probably forming the whole of the
original house, consists of an L-shaped section, now the east wing and part of
the south range. On the south side, aligned east-west, a 3-bay room with
ovolo-moulded main beams, linked by a chimney-stack to the 3-bay east wing,
aligned north-south, which was divided into a 2-bay heated room and a single-
bay unheated service room. Good plain exposed ceilings with chamfered main
beams and substantial joists set on edge. The remainder of the house has
characteristic Regency fittings.
