ST OO NE KENTISBEARE 8/92 Wressing Farmhouse - II Farmhouse. C17, largely remodelled and partially rebuild in mid C19. The right- hand end wall and most of the rear wall is of brick; the rest of cob, on stone footings, and roughcast. Gabled end slate roof. 3-room cross-passage plan house, the service end to the left of the passage with rear wing. Internal end stacks, and an external lateral rear stack heating hall: brick shafts throughout. 2 storeys. Front: 4 window range; first floor: 3-light casement window in small early embrasure to service end chamber, with large 2 and 3 light late C19 casement windows elsewhere. Ground floor: 3-light casement window to service end and hall, and French window to inner room; porch with moulded entablature on 2 slender Tuscan timber columns, with pilasters. Rear with one 2-light casement window under depressed window arch. Interior (not inspected); the roof, apparently, was completely replaced in the C19 with sawn principals of A-profile. 2 C17 ceiling beams (presumably removed from the house) were re-used in a small outbuilding of rubble masonry with a gabled-end slate roof, dated 1875; they are both set axially, chamfered, and one has good scroll stops with a notch. The outbuilding, which stands forward of the house is connected to it with a low cob wall with slate coping. The house has an attractive front, and preserves its early plan.
