GV II*

House, formerly a farmhouse. Late C14 with late C15 modifications, and late C16 and C18 additions. Timber-framed and plastered with tarred brick plinth. Plain tiled roofs. Red brick stacks to west cross-wing and east end of main range each with four septagonal or octagonal shafts with moulded chamfered bases and without original caps. Two storeys. Modified half H-plan. Main C14 range of three bays originally forming two open halls, converted to a trading hall c.1500 with inserted floors and jetty constructed in west gable (qv The Oak House, Hinxton, Cambs.); C16 cross-wings, to east with upper hall, and to west of three bays including a chimney bay framed from reused C13 or C14 timbers; double gabled C18 service wing to north. South elevation: Coved plastered eaves cornice. C19 bargeboards with apex finials. C18 raised and fielded panelled door in C16 cross passage position with canopy supported on shaped brackets. Five ground floor casement windows include two large early C20 windows; five first floor casement windows. Interior: Exposed timber-frame and floor frames show clearly the different building periods. Complete C14 roof with smoke blackened timbers, plain crown posts in closed trusses, chamfered in open truss with wide braces to the tie beams and braces to the collar purlin. C16 plastered moulded brick hearths and cooking hearth to south-west room, four chimney cupboards with original doors and hinges. Early C17 panelling in first floor south-west room complete with strap work frieze. Late C18 open string staircase. The farmhouse, formerly part of Fountains Farm, was converted to a farmhouse by the Wimpole Estate in the early C18 and sold in 1913. It is possible that the building was owned by the Lilley family in the C15; the Lilley estate came into the possessions of Sir Thos Cartwright 1567-97, and Henry Halfheide in the early C17 keeper of the Kings Game.
