1/90 Furze Farmhouse -

- II Farmhouse, now used as stables. Probably early C16, remodelled in late C16 with C20 alterations. Rendered stone rubble and cob. Pantiled roof with gable ends. Axial hall stack of stone rubble backing onto passage with tapered cap. Brick stack at right end. Plan consists of cross-passage at left end, hall to right with axial stack backing onto passage with inner room at right end. Continuous outshut to rear. The roof structure appears to have been replaced in C18 or C19, but was not fully accessible at time of survey. The inner face of the left gable end wall (to the lower side of the cross-passage) is smoke-blackened however and suggests the hall and passage were originally open to the roof. Solid wall partition rises to apex of roof between hall and inner room; the gable end stack heating the latter is a C19 insertion. The hall window has also been built out as a 2-storey bay projection, probably in C17. The continuous rear outshut containing a straight run staircase at the left end is of thick cob wall construction possibly added in late C17 or C18. There is no exposed evidence for a doorway from the passage to the lower end, a C19 barn being attached at this end. _ 2 storeys. 3-window range. Principally 2-light casements 6 panes per light. C19 doorway to cross-passage to left of bread-oven projection. Hall and inner room ground floor windows enlarged to doorways. Interior. Inner room floor removed but chamfered axial ceiling beam survives. Hall principally stripped in C20 but retains open fireplace with bread oven. C16 elliptical arched timber doorway with chamfered surround between hall and inner roof. Late C17/early C18 straight-headed doorway between hall and rear outshut. Good C16 4-centred arched chamfered door surround to upper storey between hall and former inner room chamber. C19 grates to inner room and former chamber over. Chamfered door surround to doorway from hall to rear outshut. Roof: There are no roof trusses, the purlins being entirely carried on the solid wall partitions.
