3/37 Whitehouse Farmhouse -


Farmhouse. C16 and C17, with C19 additions. 2 storeys, with attic to part; a 1½ storey brick lean-to added along the rear. Timber-framed; brick encased main range, rendered on the front; clay pantiles. 3 3-light C20 casement windows in traditional style with a horizontal bar to lights to the upper floor, and 2 similar 4-light windows with segmental arched heads to the ground floor, all in shallow reveals. Central C20 half-glazed door. An internal chimney-stack with a large plain red brick shaft. Interior now has a 2-cell lobby-entrance form, but this has evolved: at the north end a change of roof- structure indicates a C17 extension. The main beam at the south end has a supporting post from which the brace and a decorative shaft have been removed, but which still has ogee-moulding down its sides. This appears to have been part of an open truss, and on the upper floor a second post has been inserted beside it. 2 original tie-beams have been removed and others inserted, some with partitions. The present stack also appears to be an insertion. The change in roof-type occurs a little to the north of the stack: the older roof, of which only a small section is exposed, has moulding along the clasped purlins and shallow-arched solid windbraces; the later roof has 2 rows of butt purlins. In the rear wall at the north end is a blocked original 4-light window with hollow chamfer moulding to the mullions: the surfaces are weathered, and this may have been within the gable end of a former range extending westwards. A straight flight of stairs was inserted at the south end of the house in the early C18, and a corridor created on the upper floor at the same time.
