BUXHALL MILL ROAD TM 05 NW
2/38 Cottage Farmhouse
Farmhouse, mid C16. 3-cell plan with lobby-entrance. One storey and attics.
Timber-framed and pebbledashed. Concrete plaintiled roof, once thatched; 3 C20 small-pane casement dormers with cusped bargeboards. An axial chimney of red brick rebuilt in C19: 3 diagonally-set square flues on a sawtooth banded base, a similar chimney at gable to left, and two others at rear. Gabled early C20 porch at lobby entrance; the door is probably of C16 origin, of battened plank construction with nailheads and good strap hinges. Some heavy unmoulded framing; chamfered 1st floor beams, and at the right hand end a pair of basecrucks which formerly supported a half-hip. A concealed mullioned window remains in the gable. (c.p. Leffey Hall, Brettenham Road). The left hand section appears to contain a slightly later extended service cell.
