LAMBERHURST CLAY HILL ROAD (west side) Sandhurst Farnhouse

II House. Circa 1500, clad C19 and refenestrated late C20. Timber framed and clad with red and blue brick in English bond on ground floor with sandstone base and with weather boarded first floor. Plain tiled roof.

Four framed bay through-passage plan. Two storeys and basement on plinth with continuous jetty on beam ends and hipped roof with rebuilt stack to centre right. Four three-light wooden casements on first floor and three on ground floor with segmental heads, with boarded door to centre left and glazed doors to right. C20 lean-to outshot at right with wooden casements and boarded door. Basement openings to left return and large sandstone base to rear elevation.

Interior: crown post roof with moulded octagonal main post and crown post trusses elsewhere with massive arched braces, the bracing and collar purlins set eccentrically. The lack of soot blackening and the apparently although not conclusively original continuous jetty, suggest that, despite the moulded crown post, this was not a hall house. The stack (of stone) and fireplaces are also early, with four centred arched and wave moulded stone and wooden surrounds. Four centred arched main door frame with hollowed spandrels survives, as do frame and jambs of two service doorways over basement end.
