TQ 64 SW CAPEL CROCKHURST STREET

5/248 Crockhurst Street Farmhouse

II

Farmhouse. Early/mid C17, modernised and enlarged in the late C19. Timber- framed, ground floor is underbuilt with brick and plastered (some brick is exposed to rear, Flemish bond red brick with burnt headers) and the first floor is clad with weatherboards; brick stacks and chimneyshafts with C19 chimneypots; peg-tile roof.

Plan and Development: L-plan farmhouse set back from the road with the main block facing south. Main block has a 3-room plan. The small room at the left (west) end which is now used as a kitchen was probably built as a service room, probably a buttery or dairy. The projecting gable-end stack serves the chamber above. Next to it is a large room which is thought to have been the former kitchen. It has an axial stack backing onto the entrance hall further right. Main staircase rises from the entrance hall along the front. Parlour at the right (east) end with a projecting end stack. In fact the entrance hall and parlour are in a crosswing which projects to rear with a short single storey service room.

The crosswing is the C17 building and circa 1960 the rear part was reduced to the present single storey service room. The entrance hall was made by subdividing the C17 hall/parlour. The rest of the main block was added (or massively rebuilt) in the late C19.

2 storeys with attics over the parlour.

Exterior: Irregular 3-window front of C19 and C20 casements with glazing bars (similar windows around the rest of the house). Front doorway is right of centre and contains a late C19 plank door under a contemporary monopitch hood on curving timber brackets. Roofs are gable-ended and the crossroof of the C17 section is much taller than the main block roof.

Interior: The C17 parlour, that is to say the present parlour and entrance hall, has a 4-panel intersecting beam ceiling with unusual stops; a bar from which a reverse scroll goes back to a chamfer then scroll stops. The end stack is C19. It is the axial stack which is C17 (now to the entrance hall) but its fireplaces are blocked. First floor chamber has a similar 4-panel intersecting beam ceiling and the roof above is carried on tie-beam trusses with clasped side purlins. In the rest of the front block no carpentry or joinery shows earlier than the late C19.
