10/105 Church Farmhouse 31.8.62 (No. 2 Horse Ware)


House, c.1700 but with earlier stack. Red brick, mostly Flemish bond with tiled roof, hipped, and ridge stack between front and rear ranges. Plain eaves cornice. Original L-plan. Two storeys and attics. Two hipped dormers. Segmental arches to five later flush frame windows, including three C19 or C20 hung sashes of twelve panes each in open boxing. Central doorway with later doorcase and panelled door. Alternating burnt stretches and red brick headers to segmental arches of two ground floor C19 hung sashes to right of doorway. The left hand windows have been replaced by a one larger window. Right hand side elevation has original blind window openings and a doorway, now glazed. Interior: There are abutting inglenook hearths between the front and service ranges. The brick is narrow and probably remains from an earlier house on the site. Early-mid C18 closed -string staircase of five flights with turned balusters, square newels and moulded rail. The roof is of staggered butt purlin construction and contains re-used timber.

The parlour has a smaller fireplace and flanking round headed cupboards with raised and fielded panels.
