3/182 Edgegrove


Farmhouse. Probably partly late C15 or early C16, re-modelled in C17 and again
c.1800 with later additions and alterations. Roughcast concealing timber frame
and red brick, plain tile roofs and raised verges. The earliest part is
probably the 2-bay cross-wing reputed to be of close-studded construction at
the west end under a separate and lower roof; an L-shaped range with central
stack was then added to the east and finally, c.1800, the eaves of this-part
were raised and a further bay built to the north-east, creating the basic
T-plan of the present house. East front: 3 storeys, dentilled eaves cornice;
3 bays, windows all glazing bar sashes with cambered heads, 16-paned to ground
and first floors and painted in imitation to top left and right; central
entrance, half-glazed door under paired Tuscan porch with moulded entablature;
integral end stacks. Other notable external features include the prominent
stack in the roof slope of the range behind and the 2 tall external stacks in
the west wall of the cross-wing; also a C17 nail-studded door with long strap
hinges under the full-height gabled entrance porch on the north side.
