Details

TL 87 NE BARNHAM BLACKSMITH LANE

4/5 Hambleden - - II

House, formerly a pair of cottages. Late C16 and mid C17, with mid C20 extensions. Timber-framed and rendered: half hipped thatched roof with decorated ridge. Internal chimney-stack with rebuilt shaft. Mid C20 casement windows throughout: 4 eyebrow dormers. To the south of the chimney-stack is the oldest part of the house: 3 bays of plain C16 framing, including the original roof-timbers: clasped purlins, principal rafters and curved windbraces from principals to purlins. In the upper part of the south gable are 2 complete 5-light mullioned windows, the mullions probably originally of diamond form, but modified for later glazing. In the spaces betweeen these 2 windows is a C20 casement window. To the north of the chimney-stack, the ground storey room has a main beam with scroll-stops. The basic house was probably a 2-cell end-chimney type, extended into a 3-cell building in the C17: by the C19 it had become 2 cottages, divided by the chimney-stack, and was restored back to one house from a semi-ruinous condition.
