TQ 0891 NORTHWOOD DENE ROAD (south side) 804-/3/10008 No. 17 (Green End) II* Intact four-bay hall house dating to c1500, with floors and dormers inserted in the C17; entrance hall, stair and sitting room/master bedroom suite added by C. H. Townsend in 1893-94 for Charles Edward Masterman. Timber framing, brick, tile hanging and rendering. Roofs of tile. Two storeys. Cross passage and part of low end of hall house survives as the present kitchen; two-bay hall to the west, with chamfered beam and joists of a late C17 design. Parlour to the west very likely service room with solar above. Three bedrooms above were created out of the upper spaces of the original house; arched braces and cranked and chamfered tie beam are the clearest evidence of the open truss which would have dominated the two bay hall. The third bay to the west was partitioned off from the beginning. Inside the now ceiled off space are extensively smoke blackened timbers, exept for those in the west bay from the main hall. This end was half hipped; the eastmost bay finished in a gable as it does now. The middle bedroom retains a C17 dormer, now totally enclosed by the Townsend additions. Main entrance with single-storey porch, and canopy supported by curved metal braces; porch light and plank studded door of an original design; entrance set in two-span gabled projection; broad gable to 1890s wing at extreme west; hipped range to left. Tile hung to upper floor and rendered below. Gable end with outshut to left return, rendered; C20 extension enclosing porch extension to kitchen is specifically excluded. Brick on garden elevation, Flemish bond. Jettied first floor to master bedroom wing; gable-facing dormer to centre of hall range. Many windows of original design remaining. West return of 1890s wing is brick in Flemish bond, with late C20 window to sitting room. Noteworthy interior features include: Tudor-arched brick surround in entrance hall; long stair hall and passage, along length of hall with landing at upper-floor level of hall range, which is lower than 1890s addition; wood framed stair with styled balusters and newels; much exposed framing in the first floor. Formerly known as Green Hill Farm, then renamed Greenlees following Townsend's modification.
