HOPESAY C.P., RED LANE (south side), Brook House


Farmhouse, now house. Probably mid-C18 with later additions and alterations. Painted uncoursed limestone rubble with stone angle quoins; plain tile roof has integral end stacks with painted brick shafts. Two storeys and gable-lit attic with semi-cellar to left; moulded eaves cornice. 3-window front; early C19 leaded casements in segmental-headed stone surrounds. Central entrance; flat-roofed porch has fixed-light window to front and doorway to right. C20 glazed inner door. INTERIOR: right ground-floor room has chamfered spine beam and large stone fireplace with pilastered surround. Single-purlin roof in three bays with wide central bay and two upper cruck trusses resting on tie beams. These are probably contemporary with the construction of the house rather than reused from an earlier building. Alcock (1981), p. 145.
