3/97 Hoe Farmhouse - - II Farmhouse. C16 in origin, remodelled and extended in C17 and again in late C19 and early C20. Rendered stone rubble and cob with brick dressings, unrendered stone rubble at left end. Slate roof with gable ends. Brick stack at left end, and 2 rear lateral stone rubble stacks with tapered caps, with tall brick shafts. Plan: the house consists of 5 rooms in line, the middle and right end room being heated by the rear lateral stacks, with the right end room being divided from the rooms to the left by a cross-passage. A further doorway gives direct entry into the second room from the left. The house has been progressively extended at the left (lower end). Originally it consisted of an open hall at the right end and passage, conforming to the position of the present passage with a lower end extending to the left to a point immediately to the right of the lower of the 2 lateral stacks. Probably in the late C17, the house appears to have been 'turned round' when the stacks were inserted, and the hall ceiled, the former lower end being extended to the left and converted apparently to the hall, with an additional probably non- domestic room beyond. In the late C19, the hall was divided, creating a narrow room and staircase running from front to back between the hall and passage, and an extension of 1-room plan added at the left end. At this stage, the house was occupied as 2 dwellings, but has now reverted to single occupation. 2 storeys. 4-window range. 2-light casements, 6 panes per light to upper storey. Ground floor windows have 2 panes per light; the window at the right end is of 3 lights. All openings have brick quoins, those to ground floor with slightly cambered brick lintels. C20 leanto porch to left-hand doorway. Interior: largely altered in late C19. The fireplace lintel to the lower rear lateral stack has x-scratch mouldings. Creamery niche to right of fireplace to right-hand room. Ceiling beams are principally C19 and C20 replacements. Roof: the medieval roof structure over the original hall and lower end, however, is largely intact with 2 jointed cruck trusses, the feet of which rest on short wall plates circa 2 metres above the plinth. The truss towards the upper end has trenched purlins, the lower truss threaded purlins and ridge purlin. Both have slightly cranked morticed and tenoned collars. The lower truss was originally closed with mortices in the soffit of the collar and apex for studs. Smoke-blackening is clearly confined to the roof members to the right of this truss, and the right gable end wall is also smoke-blackened beneath the whitewashed plaster render. The lower truss is sited immediately to the left of the present passage. There is no indication of there having been an inner room beyond the hall. In the C19, Hoe Farm formed part of the Rolle Estate, the late C19 remodelling being characteristic of a number of neighbouring estate farms.
