BURES HAMLET TL 83 SE 4/26 Ferriers Farmhouse GV II House. C16, restyled C18/19, with external features of the early C19. Timber framed, plastered, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. 4 bays facing S, with 2 C18 axial chimney stacks and original rear wing at right, with C16 external chimney stack beyond, forming an L-plan. 2 other rear wings, C18 and C19, completing a rectangular plan, and single-storey lean-to extension beyond. Similar extension to left rear, roofed with slate, C19. 2 storeys. 3-window range of early C19 tripartite sashes of 4-12-4 lights, and C18 sash of 8 lights over door. 4-panel door with upper panels glazed, with rectangular lights above and each side, in early C19 Tuscan porch. The C16 external chimney stack at right rear has 2 octagonal shafts with moulded bases, the caps linked by a pointed brick arch, a rare feature. Original sprockets on right wall of this wing. In the left half of the main range, over the ground floor, there are richly moulded axial and transverse beams, the joists plastered to the soffits. The long elevation was jettied originally, now underbuilt. Joists for a jetty, with similar mouldings, have been re-used on edge in the ancillary building to the rear. The walls have been raised approx. 1 metre in the C18/19, leaving some jowled posts and one cambered tiebeam visible through the plaster. The ground floor room of the right rear wing has exposed studding, shutter grooves for unglazed windows each side, a doorway to the main range with Tudor doorhead, chamfered axial beam, and original hearth with depressed brick arch. Roofs not examined, but probably original over this wing.
