12/90 Red House

26.8.87 GV II

Farmhouse, probably a longhouse with one end rebuilt as finer dwelling. Probably late C17, rebuild dated 1748 with initials FF on door lintel. Herringbone-tooled sandstone, rougher on earlier right part; pantiled roofs with stone ridge, copings, kneelers and chimneys. Linear plan.

Main part 2 storeys, 3 bays. Chamfered plinth. C20 door under heavy lintel with 1748 FF on keystone. Sundial in raised bolection- moulded panel over. 3 steps up to door. Flanking 4-pane sash windows with extended keyed lintels and projecting cills; similar first-floor windows. Corniced end chimneys and moulded kneelers. Older right part 2 lower storeys, 2 wide bays, the right bay an outhouse extension. At left the cross-passage door with chamfered alternating-block jambs and heavy lintel. Low 8-pane sash to right, 6-pane sash above. In right extension a double cart door and a small fixed light. Central square stack with cornice band.

Left return shows small modern attic window. Rear elevation of main house 3 bays. Central stair window in alternating-block surround with extended lintel, initials FMC on keystone. On ground floor one 3-light Yorkshire sash and a 12-pane sash; two 6-pane sashes on first floor all with projecting cills and keystones. Rear wall of lower part blank.

Interior: Good woodwork throughout includes panelled doors, window shutters and cupboards. In parlour an old stone fireplace with deep lintel, much damaged; and in rear wall a round-arched cupboard with fluted pilasters, archivolt with moulded key, raised spandrel panels and a top cornice; shaped shelves inside, and domed roof. Old kitchen has firebeam with deep moulded and dentilled cornice; salt and spice cupboards in inglenook. Closed-string stair has turned balusters with square knops, slightly-rounded grip handrail, square landing newel and turned bottom newel with bun finials.

Upstairs 2 other panelled cupboards. Roof has collar-and-tie-beam trusses. Purlins are stout re-used timbers, possibly late medieval. Principal rafters meet the walls about 3 feet below eaves level, and show trenches for earlier collars. Purlins are pushed outwards and rest on small spurs, to give a shallower pitch to the common rafters; all showing that roof was raised, probably at 1748 renovation, while leaving principals in their original position. Internal doors are changed, so it is not certain which end of the house was rebuilt, though cross-passage door position suggests the upper end.
