BAYLHAM TM 05 SE 2/38 Stone Farm House - - II House, formerly farmhouse. C15 or early C16 core with major alterations, principally of c.1600 but of several other periods also. 2 storeys, partly with attics. Timber-framed and rough-cast; much of the ground storey walling is under-built in C19 red brickwork. Plaintiled roofs with a gabled plaintiled casement dormer. Axial C17 chimney of red brick with a saw-tooth pattern shaft, cappea in C19. C20 small-pane casements. A C19 single-storey gabled entrance porch at the lobby-entrance position with glazed panelled door. A residual open hall forms the nucleus of the house; its lightly- blackened coupled-rafter roof is almost complete. A single post, formerly shafted, marks the position of the missing open truss. In c.1600 major alterations were made: a large chimney was inserted near the cross-passage, and a fine 1st floor structure added to the hall. It has ovolo mouldings to the bridging joist and to the common joists, which have stepped stops enriched in an unusual manner. The earlier service end was rebuilt in the form of a cross-wing with clasped-purlin roof. An arch-braced open truss of C16 type in the block beyond the cross-wing is probably the vestige of a much altered C16 service range. A single-storey dairy wing was added to rear in C17. In the parlour is a corner cupboard of c.1800 with rustic enrichment.
