5/377 Wellgrove Farmhouse

II

Former farmhouse. Late C17/early C18, refurbished and enlarged in the early C20. Original house was timber-framed but outer wall underbuilt at ground floor level with Flemish bond red brick with decorative burnt headers, framing above is hung with peg-tile. Later extensions built in the same style. Brick stacks and chimneyshafts. Peg-tile roof.

Plan: Irregular double depth plan house facing south east. Main front range has a 3-room plan, parlours either side of central entrance hall containing early C20 stair. Left room has a gable-end stack and an axial stack between the other two serves back-to-back fireplaces. Service rooms to rear including a bakehouse rear centre and probable former kitchen rear centre, both with rear stacks.

The left 2-room section of the front block is the original house with larger parlour to left and adjoining unheated service room. Bakehouse to rear if not original was a very early addition.

2 storeys with attics in the roofspace of the main block and bakehouse in lean-to outshot.

Exterior: Irregular 3-window front, mostly C20 casements with glazing bars and at the right end a large early C20 full height gabled canted bay window in Tudor style; mullion-and-transom windows and jettied gable on ornamental brackets with pendants. Front doorway left of centre and contains an early C20 studded plank door behind a C20 monopitch porch. Main roof is gable- ended. Rear has 3 gables, the smallest to the bakehouse rising around the chimneyshaft.

Interior: The late C17/early C18 framed structure is well-preserved. The wall framing has studs and straight braces of relatively slender scantling. Parlour axial beam has narrow chamfers with scroll stops and the fireplace here has been rebuilt. Roofspace not accessible at the time of this survey but is said to be similar in construction to the staggered butt purlin roof over the bakehouse. Bakehouse firpelace is relatively small; it is brick with plain oak lintel and still retains its original cast iron patterned fireback and wrought iron swivelling pot-hanger.
