5/97 Termitt's Farmhouse



House. C15, altered in C16 and C20. Timber framed, plastered, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. 2-bay hall facing NW, with axial stack near left end, and 2 2-bay crosswings. C20 external stack to right. Single-storey lean-to extension with slate roof to left, and C20 external stack in front and tiled single-storey extension beyond. 2 storeys with attics. Ground floor, 4 C20 sashes and 2 C20 casements. First floor, 5 C20 casements. 2-storey porch, with half-glazed door in C20 pedimented doorcase in front. Both crosswings jettied, with original structure covered. Most of the interior is plastered. Chamfered axial beam with lamb's tongue stops, of C16 inserted floor. Some step stops visible on posts. The roofs of the hall and crosswings are original, of butt-purlin construction with arched wind braces, the roof of the hall heavily smoke-blackened. This is an unusual construction in Essex before the late C16, and suggests Midlands influence. The height of the hall, allowing 2 storeys of good height, indiates high manorial status originally, confirmed by the 2-storey porch, probably added in the C16. The timber structure of the walls is probably undisturbed, although concealed by plaster. RCHM 6.
