5/65 Grove Farmhouse
- II

Farmhouse. Late C16/early C17. 2 storeys and attics; T-shaped form. Timber-
framed, faced in old, very coarse, roughcast; plaintiles. At the junction of
the front and rear ranges, an internal chimney-stack with hexagonal attached
shafts, rebuilt in traditional style. 3 windows to front: 2-light and 3-light
small-paned C20 casements. 6-panel door with oblong fanlight and flat
pediment. The interior of the front range has a 2-cell layout, with one
heated and one unheated room divided by a cross-entry leading to the rear
wing. The present front door is in the original position. The larger heated
room has a fine ovolo-moulded main beam with stepped stops, and an open
fireplace with plain timber lintel; the unheated room has chamfered joists
with stepped stops. Original upper ceilings: main beams chamfered and step-
stopped. A blocked original doorway with rectangular surround on the upper
floor and one 2-light casement window with square leaded panes. The roof has
one row of clasped purlins and one row of butt purlins with windbraces only
one way. The rear wing is largely a C19 brick replacement of an older range:
2 storeys, colourwashed brick, black glazed pantiles. 3--light casement
windows, with segmental heads to the ground floor; C20 half-glazed door.
