2/17 Spexhall White House

- II

Farmhouse. Late C16. 2 storeys and attics; L-shaped plan. Mainly timber-framed
and rendered; some whitewashed brick. C20 single Roman tiles to front slopes
of roof; black glazed pantiles to rear. An internal chimney-stack to the main
range with a plain rebuilt red brick shaft and corbelled head. Most windows
are 2-light or 3-light C20 casements: on the ground floor and in the gable end
with transomes. At the rear of the main range, where the wall is brick-faced,
a C19 mullion-and-transome type window to each storey. In the north-east
corner between the ranges a 1½-storey early C19 brick lean-to extension
containing a porch with 2 arched doorways, a pointed 2-light Gothick window,
and a recessed door with 4 sunk panels; slate roof, dentil cornice, and an
inserted late C19 canted bay with slate roof and 3 large-paned sash windows.
The principal 2-bay room in the main range has multiple roll-mouldings to the
main beam and to the 2 beams in the partition-walls, with the mouldings
continued down the posts (cf.Manor Farmhouse, Wissett). In the parlour (on
the south east), reeded architraves to the doorway and windows, and panelled
shutters, all of c.1830. The cross-wing contains the service rooms. On the
upper floor, the main posts have long jowls and no braces. Both ranges are
contemporary, and the roofs have clasped side purlins, a lower row of butt
purlins, and the remains of arched windbraces.
