SU 35 NE VERNHAMS DEAN GENERAL Vernham Manor House 2/27 (formerly listed as 20 12 60 Manor Farmhouse) GV II*

House. Medieval, with later alterations and additions. Some timber-framing within suggests that the present centre was a medieval framed house, which had at a later date 3 massive chimneys attached to the rear (now inside). The gabled wings at each side are probably C1600, when the whole building was rebuilt in brickwork (English bond); the present passage along the rear and the extended wings are C18 and early C19, and the refacing of flint and brickwork in the centre front and the end elevations is late C18. Brick and flint, with a tile roof. Symmetrical front (east) of 2 storeys (with attics to the wings and basement to the centre), 1.5.1 windows. The slightly projecting gabled wings are in English bond, on a high plinth, the centre is flintwork with brick dressings, cambered arches to the ground floor, with 3 light chamfered brick mullions to the basement. Leaded casements (re-set at a lower level to the ground floor centre), with 2-storeyed splayed bays to the wings (with mullion and transom casements to the south side and C20 sashes to the north). C20 gabled brick porch, enclosing an Elizabethan thick wood doorframe, with the mouldings stopped above a plain base, with a panelled door now hung to open outwards. The north elevation (to the wing) has a massive stack with 2 diagonal flues, set against English bond brickwork with blue- diaper patterns, the west side having narrow horizontal flint bands: the south elevation is similar with 2 stacks (one with a single diagonal flue, the other of 3 flues, the 2 outer diagonal). The rear has walls of Flemish bond with blue headers, cambered ground floor openings, casements (some blocked), and the wings project and appear of the early C19, with an access to higher ground from the 1st floor at the north side. Within, there is C17 panelling, an elaborate (but crude) Jacobean screen with Ionic pilasters, Jacobean panelling above a fireplace, 2 fireplaces with reeded cast-iron (Adam-style) fittings, a C18 corner cupboard, a plain plaster barrel vault to the 1st floor of the north wing, and a plain C18 staircase.
