TERLING SPARROWS FARM ROAD TL 71 SE (south side) 5/156 Rolls Farmhouse


House, now 2 houses. Early C17, altered in C19 and C20. Timber framed, plastered, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. 4 bays facing NE, with 2 axial stacks. Rear wings at both ends, probably C19, and single-storey lean-to extension between, roofed with red clay 'Roman' tiles. 2 storeys with attics. 3-window range of C20 sashes. Half-glazed door with marginal lights in C20 gabled porch. 3 feature gables. 3 C19/C20 diagonal shafts on each stack. Right return wall bricked on ground floor only. The interior is mainly plastered, with beams boxed in. Chamfered axial beams above first floor, with lamb's tongue stops. Original floorboards at first floor and attic. On first floor, small section of original oak panelling, painted, and original oak panelled cupboard door. House to right not examined internally. The farm, with 50 acres, was let by Sir Thomas Mildmay from 1581 to 1617, when the freehold was sold to a London buyer (Essex Record Office, D/DRa T.63). The present house probably dates from then.
