FRAMSDEN MILL HILL TM 15 NE 4/42 Orchard House - - II

Former farmhouse; built in 3 stages: early C16, late C16, and early C17. 2 storeys, a long 3-cell range. Timber-framed and plastered; both earlier phases have concealed herringbone bricknogging infill. Pantiled roof with chimneys of red brick: a fine C16 parlour chimney is external to the left-hand gable with a diaperwork pattern in burnt headers. At the base is an arch- headed recess. The flanks of the stack are crowstepped and the twin shafts are octagonal (possibly a later rebuild). A central axial C17 chimney has 3 square shafts linked at the head. A similar 2-flue chimney to right is probably a C19 copy. Mainly C20 casements, some with small panes. Early C19 entrance door with 6 fielded panels. The parlour block to left has some fine carpentry of c.1520: beams and joists with triple roll-mouldings, and an embattled cornice. A wide fireplace lintel, moulded and with leaf-carved spandrels; the fireplace in the chamber above has a similar but plainer lintel, and a smaller C17 plastered arched fireplace is inserted beneath it. The parlour block was originally roofed in the opposite direction and extended southwards. The later C16 work has chamfered ceiling joists and arch windbraced close-studding. The C17 service accommodation to right has unmoulded framing.
