BACTON SWILLTUB LANE TM 06 NE

2/34 Fords Green (formerly - listed as Cherrytree 29/7/55 Farmhouse, Fords Green) -- II*

House, C16 in two stages. Two blocks at right angles, placed corner-to-corner with a narrow link. The long range is of early C16, and the eastern block c.1550. 2 storeys, the eastern block with attics. Timber-framed and plastered. Plaintiled roofs, the lower range hipped. A C16 end chimney and an axial chimney with rebuilt C19 shaft, both of red brick. The east block has a late C18 facade on the north side: 2 storeys, 3 windows. Small-pane sashes of original form but renewed in mid C20. Entrance doorway: 6-panelled door with fielded panels, semi-circular fanlight with intersecting bars; open pediment with console brackets. The earlier phase has heavy framing: the south gable is end-jettied; this is now internal. Tension-braced close- studding with blocked diamond-mullioned windows. Massive floor joists, chamfered in main room only. Roof rebuilt in C18. The east block is of 2- cell end-chimney form and with high quality framing. Very closely spaced studding with several blocked windows with rib-moulded mullions. Joists are roll-moulded and main beams have double roll with leaf stops. Wind-braced clasped purlin roof. Some C17 panelling.
