2/12 Street Farmhouse


Former farmhouse. Mid C16 and early C17. Part 2 storeys, part 2 storeys and
attics: a main range and later cross-wing. Timber-framed and rendered, with
pantiles on the southern slope of the cross-wing and the remainder of the roof
thatched. 3-light and 2-light windows, mainly C20, in mullioned style. C20
entrance door. The main range, set sideways-on to the Street, in 5 bays, has
a 3-cell plan with internal chimney and cross passage, divided from the hall
by an original plank screen. The rooms to each side of the stack have exposed
timber ceilings; main beams with wide chamfer and scroll-stops with bar,
joists set flat and chamfered, with similar stops. Each room has a large open
fireplace with plain timber lintel and traces of tuck-pointing on the
brickwork. A newel stair beside the stack, and another stair in the service
area, which is divided into 2. The room above the service rooms is not
accessible from the rest of the upper floor, and was probably used as a cheese
room initially. Main posts with long arched braces removed; cambered tie-
beams; arched braces to side and end walls at the corners; remains of diamond
mullioned windows. On the rear wall, one 3-light C18 casement window with
square leaded panes. The roof has clasped purlins, diminished principals and
windbraces; assembly marks to the trusses. C17 cross wing in 5 bays with an
end chimney-stack. Plain framing exposed: one upper room has a window with
ovolo-moulded mullions. Roof in 4 bays with clasped side purlins, numbered
principals, altered.
