SHUSTOKE BACK LANE SP2290 (West side) 12/163 Green Farmhouse 11/11/52 GV II Farmhouse, now house. 2 principal building periods. Early C17 and mid C17. Late C18 additions and alterations. Timber-frame with red brick infill. Red brick to additions and casing or part rebuilding of C17 house in rear wall. Plain-tiled roof. Ridge stack of sandstone rubble with red brick above the ridge. Side stack to parlour cross-wing projects and is of squared and coursed sandstone with cogged red brick coping to stack. (This is similar to the side stack to the parlour wing of Church Farmhouse, Shustoke (q.v. dated 1669)). Early C17 north-south parlour range of 2 bays with later C17 east-west service range probably replacing an earlier range on the same site. The 2 ranges accordingly now form a main range with parlour cross-wing. In the angle is the cross-passage entry at the rear of the stack. Main range of 2 storeys and attic. Later C17 gable to front with exposed small panel framing. C20 wood casements. Old sandstone steps up to doorway now with C20 door. The rear wall is cased in red brick. The parlour cross-wing is also of 2 storeys and attic. The attic storey projects slightly, but structurally does not form a jetty. There are original shaped brackets to the ends of the wall plates, which are similar to the carving of the transversal main beam in the parlour wing. In the gable head there are serpentine shaped inclined struts. Small framing of height of 3 panels to each wall. In C18 it was extended by a single storey kitchen. One storey and one bay. Plain-tiled roof. At the same time on the east side a pantry or dairy was added. Red brick with plain-tiled roof. C18/C19 iron-frame horizontal sliding sashes with leaded lights and original fastenings. These additions to the parlour wing probably indicate a change of status of the ownership of the house. interior: Main range has inglenook hearth, now blocked. Chamfered main beam but otherwise plain joists. At first floor there is an original landing forming a corridor with rooms off suggesting a plan of the later C17. The roof is wind-braced and has double tiers of through-purlins with the blades halved at the apex. There are inclined struts from tie-beam to the heads. The parlour wing is of two bays. Originally probably of one room the parlour is now divided by a red brick wall of late C17 or C18. The beam is stop-chamfered on both sides and at one end there is similar carving to that found on the bracket to the wall plate of the gable. The other end has been mutilated by a doorway insertion. The longitudinal ceiling beams are stop-chamfered as are the joists. The first floor chambers were ceiled when built. The framing is substantial with jowled posts and braced tie-beams. The roof is also of through-purlin type with tiers of purlins but the centre truss has a King-post. The room at the south end of the attic cross-wing has a floor made of plaster. This may have been constructed as a cheese room (as at the first floor room at Hill Farm, Shawbury Lane, Shustoke q.v.). The kitchen at the end of the parlour wing is of one storey with inglenook and bread oven. The wall plate in the west side of the cross-wing has a short splayed scarf joint.
